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!

The Heat is On!

Ta-dah! Starting today, our crowdfunding campaign is up and running on www.indiegogo.com/dersamurai. Throughout the next 48 days we will need your help to get the ball rolling and raise the money still missing from our budget!

If you’d like to support us, please head over to indiegogo and contribute whichever amount you like and can spare, choose from an ensemble of sweet & unique perks and subsequently find yourself praised back here as a beloved and appreciated patron of DER SAMURAI. Tell your friends about our campaign, link us to your blog and Facebook profile and follow and discuss our progress on these pages!

Make the dream – or is it a nightmare? – come to life together with us!

A Glimpse at Our Previous Work

See Pit + Till introducing DER SAMURAI and presenting a trailer of their previous collaboration COWBOY. Take note of the music at the start of the video, an early cue composed by Conrad Oleak for DER SAMURAI.

Hold on to your feet!

Meet the Gang – Pt. 1

10 May

Let’s all introduce each other, shall we?

Last week Pit Bukowski – the amazing young actor who will be playing the Samurai – and I sat down to briefly announce the upcoming production of DER SAMURAI into a camera. The thing about talking into a camera is – it’s hard. So, pleased to meet you: star Pit Bukowski and writer/director Till Kleinert failing to remain focused (literally) and straight-faced.

We eventually ended up doing the announcement standing up, which miraculously worked much better. So, I guess the lesson here might be: if you’re trying to be comfortable in a potentially uncomfortable situation, don’t try to make yourself too comfortable.
