Realy I do not know how long i do this work. Once a friend asked me, if I want do the work instead of him. I gues over 5 years i do the Jury member work. It is a pitty that the Church does not do more maketing for the little film festival. It is special for school pupils, youth and young people.
This year we had great short films there. Of course i don´t tell who win. For that you have to come to the show.

Have a nice day!

Testing graduated neutral density filter – Rollei GND Filter

Yesterday I was on a photo shoot. Longer time ago, i bought a graduated neutral density filter. The location i choose is one of the federal road passing through the City. One of the old „mistakes“ of the architectural planning afte

Rollei Filter Test
testing Rollei Filter

By this photo i tested the graduation only for the sky. That is the normal use to bring the contrast between the dark light and the high light closer together. So that you see still the clouds in the sky.

In the next photo i tried to see what happen, when i put the darker side of the graduated density deeper in the motive. As you can see, the light looks unnatural. It looks, if i use a flash for the street in the forground. The middle- and background are darker than the forground a typical flat flash lighting. But not for that theme. For that you had to build up a line of more realy strong flashes.

An interesting result. You have to look twice to notice the unnatural lighting. Sometimes when thunder is coming up, you see a similar lighting. Only the clouds in the sky shows it doesn´t work for a thunder.

Ups, is there any deeper meaning?

if you don´t check it everytime, it happens that your web design does there own thing. To bring Josep Carrera and the Animated Film Festival so close together, what shall i think about this? Does it means something?

ITFS 2017 – Festival of Animated Film – Internationales Trickfilm Festival

The crazy time passed by.

From last Tuesday on I worked for SCHAWA MEDIA at the International Trickfilm Festival / Festival of Animated Film.
My job was to create the daily video clip. To show what happened at the day. The Trailer was shown the next day as a kind of summary.
I was switching between my camera-team and the editor. It was real long days. With my editor we worked from 12pm to 4 or 5am. Puh.

You can look the clips from Tuesday, Wednsday …

Spring comes – Frühlingserwachen

After the artic weather from the last weeks, today just before the 1. May a little feeling of spring and sun. The place close to my home was very crowded. The tourist bus i saw the first time around Eastern. Hm, is the street such important or do the driver have a deal with the brewery in my street? What do you think?

Marienplatz
Marienplatz, close to my place. A great arrangement
Tourist bus in my street
London Tourist Bus in my street, it is new. First time I saw it at Eastern. Is it because of the brewery in the street?

I did it – Music Clip Imagine Dragons

Premiere Timeline
The final timeline of the Adobe Premiere Competition with the material from IMAGINE DRAGONS

Friday night I uploaded my final music clip editing. It is the 25 years Adobe Premiere Competition. You downloaded the video material of the shooting from IMAGINE DRAGONS and do your own cut.
My idea and aim was to show a new interpretation of the song text and the video material. I did use After Effect or other possibilities. I concentrated on the edit and the mood of the pics. I’m satisfied with my result.

Now Adobe has to watch every single clip. Than they will judge the 25  finalist. Let’s see was happen. It was a great experience to work with such good material. And find my way of the visual song interpretation.

I keep you informed what happens.

The Symbol of my last work

Mercedes Maybach
Mercedes Maybach G-Model

Hi, long time ago. The last 12 days i was at the Mercedes Product Forum.
It was a hard work, specially the early hours start.
Yes, I know a lot of people must do it. Here a pic of the public area.
I guess you need one 🙂

 

 

London Art Gallery – framing of a painted picture

The next fascinating picture. When i saw it, immediately it remembered me at the EDITING – FRAMING from the film. You see one picture splitted in three frames in different sizes.

Another interesting point is that you see from the convict only the hand. His face and body is not shown. It is like by a good movie. That you show not all in the frame. The rest is in the phantasy of the viewer.

German Version:
Ein weiteres Bild aus der Londoner Gallery, das mich beeindruckte. Fasziniert blieb ich stehen. Betrachtete die Aufteilung des Bildes. Wie im Filmschnitt spielt der Künstler mit verschiedenen Bildausschnitten. Als hätte er einen Film in verschiedenen Einstellungsgrößen aufgenommen.
Ein weiteres spannendes Detail ist, dass von dem Verurteilten nur die Hand zu sehen ist. Ich liebe Filme, in denen Dinge angedeutet werden. Der Rest der Handlung in der Vorstellung des Zuschauers passiert. Es gibt einige Filmbeispiele, ah, ich erinnere mich nie an die Filmtitel. Bei dem Thriller, ich glaube aus den 90ger, als ha welche Schauspielerin, die Beine übereinanderschlägt. Es gab eine riesen Diskussion hat sie eine Slip an oder ist sie nackt. Die Nacktheit im Kopf des Zuschauers hervorrufen ist die grosse Kunst. Finde ich.

Bis zum nächsten Mal

Republik Freies Wendland

Morgen jährt sich der 40jährige Widerstand gegen das Atomkraft Endlager Gorleben. Leider verlor ich meinen Pass von der 33 Tage existierenden Republik. Es hat doch etwas bewirkt. Wir verloren zwar den Widerstand, es gibt ein Zwischenlager, dennoch hat sich in der Gesellschaft innerhalb der 40 Jahren etwas bewegt. Weiter so.
