Bildgestaltung und Events

Warum? so frage ich mich, wird im Eventbereich keine spannendere Bildgestaltung versucht. Die Agenturen geben sich viel Mühe mit einem tollen Aufbau, Design und versuchen immer wieder etwas Neues dem Kunden anzubieten. Bei Videoprojektionen allerdings wird seit Jahrzehnten so olle Bildgestaltung gemacht.

Liegt es daran, dass sie nie die Videofraktion fragen? Die Agentur kann ja alles, liegt es wirklich daran? Dabei wollen sie die TV Shows nach empfinden. Selbst hier wird außer Steadycam, nein, manchmal sieht man Bildgestaltungen mit Vordergrund – Mittelgrund -Hintergrund.

Allerdings auf Events, keine Chance. Da werden keine spannenden Perspektiven gesucht, selten Fahrten, schon gar nicht, mal aus dem Publikum von der Unschärfe in die Schärfe, es werden ganz einfach nur auf Standards gesetzt. OK, bei einen Redner gross muss man ja nicht das Rad neu erfinden. Bei einer Talk Runde, kann man durchaus mit der Bildgestaltung spielen. Denn die Totale sehen die Zuschauer ja selbst.

Persönlich denke ich, dass eine spannendere und durchaus ungewöhnlichere Bildgestaltung durchaus auch für mehr Aufmerksamkeit sorgt und dem ganzen Event eine gelungenere Note verleiht. Ich bin  mir bewusst, dass die Videoprojektion oft nur „eben dazu gehört“. Ohne jetzt wirklich vom wichtigen, dem Redner abzulenken, gäbe es noch einige Möglichkeiten.

Natürlich geht das nicht, wenn Kamera und Kameramann/frau am besten unsichtbar sein sollten. Aber WARUM, wenn Videoprojektion, dann bitte auch mal spannendere Bildgestaltung.

Ein paar Gedanken zum neuen Jahr :L-)

Comic about racism & love – could it work?

Europeans refugee movement
European refugees in the close future

My idea is to REVERSE the refugee problematic. Not the arabians or north africans are refugees. In the close future the Europeans escape to the African Continent. They destroyed the Europe with fracking, pollution. Another problem is that the goverments destroyed the democracy. The Africans learned over the centuries to survive with less or nothing. And in my future they through out all the industry and companies. The situation becomes than in Europe. The Europeans are blocked by their refugee movement by their own walls or electric fences. Which they build up in the beginnning of the 21. century against the refugee movement nowadays.

My idas has nothing to do with the horrible and catastrophic situation of the refugees nowadays. My thoughts are, to show the complete wrong discussions about Asyl or refugees in Germany in the future and to reverse the problematic.

I found a great author, he is professor of history and plitical philosopher. He teaches in Jo`bourg, South Africa. He wrote it in french, i bought the german version, don´t worry. He is writing about racism, capitalism and the term nigger. How does race and nigger belongs together for the europeans and USA. Does it change or does it exist in another way.

The idea change a little, now i will write more about racism and love. But not a usual love story as it is often written in the fairy tell or myths. To write about politics can be boring, that why I decide to use the Bondage as a contrast to the racism subject. All is playing in the future.

My first work was to sell used barbies, white and coloured dolls. Than i discovered new clothes, that the barbies don`t look so childys. I found some great clothes and styles on ebay. The next step was to photograph them. I discovered an interesting way with flashes.

The next step was to create an own style, somthing between Comic and Manga.  The barbies have some relations to the Manga style 🙂

Because i had non experiences with such dolls, i had big trouble that they stay like i want them to stay. My daughters laughed and told me why don´t you asked us 🙂 Yeah why i didn´t do it? Another problem is, that the barbies has another context. My daughters don´t like the look so much. Let´s see where the story goes.

If you are interesting, contact me. Can you write or will work with me, you are welcome!

Year 2016

Times runs os fast my last comments was over 2 months ago.

What´s new. Between Christmas and the New Year i start to create a comic book. Everytime i start with something new, it needs more time than i thought. It is normal. The first was my calendar. I never thought it needs so long time to create a good design. The photos are great, i shoot seagulls in Hamburg. I did the premiere color correction and decided which display window is the best. That´s all. Than it needs time to prepare the printing.

Finally i ordered a few calenders. They were great. Even i lost the 17. January 2016. The often change of the design makes it happen 🙂

What i learned was i have to start earlier, if want to sell the calendar via Internet. I have to start now, that i will finished in August! Let´s do it!
