Just watch the video I uploaded to get an idea (so how was I able to shoot this while I had to do my real job as a camera man? 2raumwohnung didn’t need a live video stream, they had their own visuals for the background – so I was off work). YouTube is still blocked, I’ll try to make some more videos while being here.
