Let’s recap December of 2018, shall we?

So this is it, the last recap of the year, well not exactly, this is the last monthly recap, a recap of the whole 2018 will still follow sometime this week (hopefully). But yes it has been a busy month actually. I released two videos this month, though technically Juicy Finish was done in November, … more →

Shot a Promo B-Roll Video

So I’ve made my first video with my new gear and I thought a Promo-Video for my Bar ‘Zum Lange Inseli‘ seems fitting. When you watch a lot of youtube Videos you see a lot of so-called B-Roll, so I thought I’d give it a try. The video was shot in 100p with only 16mbps bitrate. The … more →

‘Juicy Finish’, a new Short Film

After a rather long, intense and costly first short-film process with Movie Night I was in the mood for something rather simple and quick. I had this idea of making a film with fast cuts and some humorous bits and make it rather silly. Having a simple shoot with just one location and fewer actors and … more →

Let’s recap November of 2018, shall we?

One more recap to go and then I can choose a new format for next year. Yeah, I know that currently, it seems that all I do is write recaps and maybe another post in between. But a lot has been happening in the last two months. The good news of a new job, the … more →

Quality vs Quantity

I‘ve been thinking a lot about the next project (obviously), which will be shot this Saturday, and what kind of future projects I plan on doing. I once made the bold statement to a friend of doing at least 12 short movies next year, one for each month, just to put pressure on myself with … more →

Let’s recap October of 2018, shall we?

In a way, I did my recap two days ago with an in-depth look back on the making of my first short film “Movie Night”. But I want to keep up this year’s tradition of a monthly recap (at least for another two months). It was a special month, having three weeks off from work … more →

‘Movie Night’ my first real Short Film

It was a long long process but the finished film has finally been released. It’s shocking when I look back to the inception phase of this small project and how long it took and how it all turned out now. First, it took me two weeks to find a story, then another month to prepare … more →

Let’s recap September of 2018, shall we?

Ok, a whole month without one simple post which is not the recap post. But I was busy (and still am) with all the preparations for my short film “Movie Night“. So let me write a bit where things currently are. Screenplay I always wanted to write a Screenplay, then during the whole preparation phase, I … more →

Let’s recap August of 2018, shall we?

Another month has passed which means time for the usual recap. So what happened this month? Well, a lot! It all started with the plan to write and shoot a micro/short film. Since then I’ve been doing lots of research for shooting procedure, for renting equipment and kept my mind busy with the basic shape … more →

I’m having a Story Idea

After a few frustrating days of finding a story for my micro/short film project, it suddenly made click this weekend, thanks to some tasty drinks (love myself a Blackberry Bourbon Smash) and a bit of brainstorming with a friend. The basic premise is there and a possible end which I really like as well as … more →

I’m trying to put something together

It’s been some time since my last blog post and while I didn’t continue with the 100 Days Drawing Challenge, I was productive in another way. I had a blast shooting and editing that video I did last month (minus some slight frustration) and I’ve been trying to do something new. So I thought of … more →

Let’s recap July of 2018, shall we?

I wasn’t wrong when I said in last month’s recap that July will be the hottest month of the year, but it seems that the high temperatures will go on at least for another 2 weeks. Well, the weather had a lot of impact on my motivation over the last two weeks, but first, let’s … more →

Shooting a short Video

I must confess, I wasn’t drawing the last few days for the 100 Days Drawing Challenge because I was trying something new. I decided to stop making up any more excuses and just shoot a short clip. So I stood up very early on my day off and just walked around town and filmed stuff … more →

My new iPhone Gear has to wait

Today I wanted to discuss the new gear I bought for my iPhone to shoot some of those short videos I‘ve talked about but somehow the fact that I have to send in my iPhone for repairs put a small dent on my mood. It seems that the recently replaced front glass is not holding … more →
