Villains and Heroes

31 May

One of the early contributors to our crowdfunding campaign has been Bastian Finke, who with a whooping contribution of $1.5k made the campaign bar rise significantly!

Bastian is not only a hero for that, but much more so for being the head of Maneo, Berlin’s gay anti-violence-project, advising and helping LGBT people who have become victim to acts of homophobic violence. If you would like to learn more about Maneo and their activities, please find their site linked on our sidebar!

By helping us out, Bastian sure earned himself ‘A Night to Remember’ with producer Anna de Paoli, director Till Kleinert and actor Pit Bukowski.

Thank you very much!

Enter the Dark

17 May

Part of the objective of today’s and yesterday’s location tour was to figure out the visual basics of Jakob’s nightly pursuit of the Samurai. A Fenix TK35 LED flashlight helped us create a great uncanny mood without having any ‘professional’ lights at our disposal for the test.

(Obviously, the people in the shots are not the actual actors.)

It’s quite amazing what two flashlights and a bounceboard can do. Looming shadows, the white ‘dress’ ghostly overexposing, absolute blackness at the seams of the frame. To people knowing me as an avid player of the Silent Hill video games it should come as no surprise that I am very fond of that particular lighting style.
