boy in Mongolian mountains looking down in to a valley with a river at sunriseWe came a long way with The Singer. A bunch of amazing people came together for post production. We’re so happy to have Bernhard Wießner for the montage of the movie on board. Our heart goes out to all people who helped us on the way. Editing commences these days in Berlin.

Two more days, and we’ll be relocating to Shanghai, China.

Our film is almost in the can, I’m looking forward to meet the excellent producers who have been prepping the China part of our shoot.

Have a look at what we got done so far in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. My 1st AC, Lambert Strehlke, was kind enough to get some screen shots sorted for us:

 

Griot, a music documentary film by Volker Goetze, took an even longer path, travelling via New York, where German born director and composer Goetze worked on completion of this emotional piece for many years. – A journey worth to travel, as the fruits of Goetze’s efforts could be harvested all along the way:

It was great fun shooting this film. So I was not surprised, that Volker got massively energized by the impact of the shoot and his deeply moving experiences in the ancient culture of Western Africa. Carried on by this energy, he kept performing on prestigious events such as the Munich International Opera Festival all through out post-production –  besides finishing his debut film, arranging and composing his own work.

Produces by WEITBLICK MEDIA, parts of the movie Griot inspired Volker Goetze to write a breathtaking multimedia symphony, which has successfully premiered in the studios of Westdeutscher Rundfunk, Cologne (WDR Köln) in 2011.

Griot will celebrate its world premiere this Autumn at the 28th Warsaw Film Festival, one of the 14 top listed A festivals on this planet. – Congrats from Europe!

Griot has been  made possible with the help of many people. Volker Goetze wants to thank amongst many others: WEITBLICK MEDIA, Sam Pollard, Victor Kanefsky, Leslie Mulkey a.k.a Holcomb Reed, Joshue Ott, Randy Weston, Ph.D. Mamadou Diouf and last not least the Griot, Ablaye Cissoko.

Having visited the cinema technique exhibition cinec yesterday, Everybody could see that 5D is moch more of a trend than 3D…excuse the pun…

Andererseits, a German feature film by director Rüdiger Görlitz  which I shot on the Canon 5D mkII early last year, just published a new teaser.

Have a look at the montage of rushes here and tell me which version you’d like to see up there on my showreel.


…oh, and did you hear of the new German version of my homepage?


We are having a lot of fun shooting Cheryl Dunye’s latest feature film Mommy is Coming in Berlin.

"Sometimes it pays to listen to your mother."

“Set in the international creative melting pot Berlin, this raunchy romantic comedy of errors confronts the last lesbian taboo: Mommy. A take on screwball romantic comedy & porn topped off w/Dunye’s ingenious form of storytelling.”

Join us on Facebook, if you like. Or have a look at some really hot moms here.
