• 2010/ Fürstenau

    This is my very first self shot commercial project, which took me 14 shooting days and it´s an imagefilm about a small town in the north of germany, called Fürstenau.

    The so called "Hanseatic Day" is arranged every year by different hanseatic cities.
    This time, Fürstenau was supposed to show it´s amenities to the city councils and mayors of all associated cities.

    The movie was directed by Anja Meyer, who is tourism agent of Fürstenau.
    Her demands were just simple: "Show Fürstenau from its best side and generate shots,like the ones, you´ve shot for your "Neuschwanstein"-movie.

    Therefore she made a huge list of attractions, locations, events and companies which had to be filmed.

    We gathered more than 400 GB of wonderful footage, visited a lot of nice places, lots of companies, we shot weddings, festivities, impressions, livings, attractions and whatsoever.

    At the end we had to reduce the movies length of 20 minutes down to a maximum of 8 mins, which was an iterative task between the client and me.

    With "tears in my eyes" we had to get rid off a lot of very nice shots, as it was necessary to keep the movie interesting and entertaining enough.

    The music and sounddesign has been produced by "Sounds In Motion", Gunter Richter, who did an amazing job, merging the different topics seamless together.
