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! Background for It’s Always Sunny With Emily Emily started going to chool this year, and I wanted to create a snapshot of her last year in freedom in form of a video. So I started shooting all the fun activities we had and edited them into this time capsule motion document that you can see here. I may be going a bit over the top here, but school does change everything and takes her from childhood via teenage into adulthood. Things will never be the same again. I love my daughter and wish her the best life she can have. We went to the Alps, Livigno, where Emily had her first and second ski lessons. She got really […]

Music Video: Yang Baby – “Kiss You Again”

I’ve been so busy in the last months that I even forgot to post this music “Kiss You Again” 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! Produced by Cedric Banini & m&r Kreativ GmbH Shot by Jakob Montrasio & Paul Mukian Directed by Banini & Montrasio & Mukian http://mrkreativ.de/ http://www.yang-baby.com/ […]

SHANGDOWN: THE WAY OF THE SPUR — TRAILER DEBUT OF THE MARTIAL ARTS SPAGHETTI WESTERN

SHANGHAI — September 27th 2010 /PRNewswire/ — The new full-length trailer for MK Media Productions’ highly anticipated motion picture Shangdown: The Way Of The Spur debuted today. Shangdown: The Way Of The Spur, starring Christian Bachini and The Way Of The Dragon’s famous villain Jon T. Benn, and directed by Jakob Montrasio, pays homage to the violent and gritty Spaghetti Western genre while adding an Asian twist. The movie follows Italian cowboy and martial artist Guerino (Christian Bachini) as he searches for his missing sister in a culturally alien Shanghai. With the help of Jiekai (Daddy Chang), a Chinese man whose girlfriend has also gone missing, Guerino wages a one-man war against Shanghai’s biggest crime lord and his multitude of goons, following his one and only rule: kick first and ask questions later. Shot on location in and around Shanghai, China, the film blends a variety of genres. “I call it a martial arts spaghetti western, or even simpler, an eastern western,” said director Jakob Montrasio, who also wrote, shot and edited the movie. Using no wires and digital effects, the action scenes – choreographed by lead actor Christian Bachini – will impress martial arts fans like no other film […]

“Nuit Blanche”

Once or twice per year I stumble upon a video or a film that captures me with it’s magic, that inspires me, that makes me want to become a filmmaker. Nuit Blanche is such a video. I am speechless. This short deserves awards, lots of them. It’s perfectly smooth, everything about it is done well (the lighting! the costumes! the actors!) and it gives me goosebumps even the fourth time I watch it. Well done, Mister Arev Manoukian, well done. Update: The Making Of. Now I’m even more blown away. Holy shit is this well produced. […]
