I am a flick addict, so I love to watch movies and shoot my own.

It’s Always Sunny With Emily

Emily…
My little girl.
Growing so fast.
You got into first grade three weeks ago!
I knew this day was coming.
Started recording the fun times we had exactly a year ago.
All the fun times we had together, leading up to your first school year.
In Italy, Germany, in summer, in winter.
We love swimming, we love the snow.
With family, with friends, or just the two of us.
Thank you for all the sunshine, my love.
To the next six years!

Emily on a child railway train.


Wer wollte nicht schon einmal von einem Tausendfüssler auf einen rasanten Ritt eingeladen werden. Der Tausendfüssleer “Murgel” lädt dazu ein. Quer durch die Mühlenlandschaft geht es mal links, mal rechts herum. Das ist ein Spaß für die ganze Familie. Doch aufgepaßt, irgendwann ist jede Fahrt am Ende. Doch egal – im Märchenparadies können Sie fahren solange Sie wollen.

The premiere of “Das diebische Rentier”.

“Das diebische Rentier” means “The thieving reindeer” and that’s what our 3D projection is all about: A reindeer that’s too lazy to pull the sleigh anymore and a Santa that gets mad angry. The premiere was yesterday at the Saint Johann market in Saarbrücken, where the local Christmas market is every year. Given that it was a Thursday – a workday – and it had rained just before, there will still a few people around watching the show. I think it will be much fuller on the weekend though. If you’re in or around Saarbrücken, don’t miss it!

Music Video: Yang Baby – “Kiss You Again”

I’ve been so busy in the last months that I even forgot to post this music video which we shot. It was finished in the beginning of August, days before I flew to Japan to shoot Souls of Zen, so I completely lost track of everything due to the jetlag, shoot and unavailable internet connection in Japan. We shot it with two Canon 5D Mark II’s at a place called “Potato Beach” as well as in the Saarbrücken Music University. It took two days to shoot it and a couple more to edit it. Enjoy!

Standing while editing.

Standing while editing.

Since Monday, I’ve been working while standing. No more seat for me. There are various reasons for this, among the top ones are my (over-)weight as well as the back pain that I had in Japan from shooting handheld and with a six kilogram heavy steadistick so much.

I’ve read about the benefits of working while standing some month ago and wondered all the time if I should try it out. The first day was the hardest one, my feet hurt badly at the end of it. So we went to Runners Point and bought me some new Nike shoes with the softest sole they had, some new foam-style with the classification 5.0. They worked wonders, and by Tuesday the pain was gone for the first six hours. The last hour started to get painful again, so I tried to sit down more often on Wednesday and Thursday. It worked just fine, and today my feet feel great again.

I feel much more clear while working, somewhat sharper and faster, and I need much less coffee than before. Actually, I just drink one in the morning and one after lunch for the stomach, but that’s it. It’s all mineral water that I drink now. The flat screen that I edit on is three metres in front of me in eye height, and my operating software just below me, so I am using my neck regularly, too. I think I’m standing straighter now, too.

But I also already start to feel healthier – I’m much more exhausted in the evening than I used to, but that’s a good sign I guess. Standing all day together with riding the bike to work and playing with Emily on weekends should hopefully make up quite a bit for my lack of sport activities? I’ll update here once I see some changes in my weight. I can only recommend other chubby guys to try this out, too! It’s really neat.
