The elaborate End of Robert Ebb

This Supinfocom graduation film made me laugh quite hard:

Bass Awards

It appears that I won two Bronze Bass Awards! Yay!

 

One award was for a title design I created for the ZDF TV-movie «Familie Windscheidt» – the Bass Awards specifically requested the entries be in lower resolution, but here’s the HD-version:

I also did a small making-of on that title sequence a couple of weeks ago, here’s the link!

 

The other award was won by a collaboration with Jenny Harbauer, the main opening titles for the German comedy «Die Kirche bleibt im Dorf», a film for which we also created the chapter title cards and end credits, here’s the full version:

Berliner Kartoffelwaffeln – Berliner Potato Waffles

This was originally intended as an entry to the Vimeo video school challenge. However we had to postpone the filming (and cooking) several times, so it didn’t get finished in time. I still wanted to try my hand at making a filmic recipe, though, and we did want to test these waffles from a stack of recipe picture postcards Lynn had got from my Lieblingstante, so we did it anyway.

 

It’s Lynn doing the cooking, obviously, and we agreed I would try to follow her invisibly and she wasn’t to consider me or the camera at all to make it all a little more documentary. I tried my best to keep up with her, move the tripod, set the exposure, focus etc., but next time I am definitely going for a staged shoot, as it did give me a couple of headaches in the editing process with some of the action missed, some shots poorly framed and exposures not matching. I would probably not go so far as to storyboard the next one, but a good plan with several differently framed shots that have all been set up nicely and comfortably beforehand should work a lot better!

 

Shot on my trusted Canon 60D with a Nikon 35mm lens stopped down to f2 most of the time using existing lights only.

(Something I would also change, with me fiddling around with the exposure all the time and shooting at 320 ISO

I occasionally had to face quite a bit of grain in post).

 

 

(There’s also a special extended cut on my vimeo account – with even more shots of the finished product:)
