It is quite a miracle that there are this many people popping by this page every day given that I have been out and about for so long. Winter cold had clutched and clenched me in its tight fist, freezing on snowy outdoor sets and indoor locations with no heating and lots of draft. Travelling I’ve been, in fluff flakey white covered Swiss mountains; meadow forresty winter tale sunshine all around and offline for weeks. How lovely that was. After shooting a small documentary with Max Mannheimer for Memento and the city of Munich, I was involved in a project with Embassy of Dreams and landed last not least this week int he Bavaria Film Studios, where I am teaching students from Munich Film School (University of Film and Television Munich, Hochschule für Fernsehen und Film), who are attending a workshop with Michael Ballhaus, DOP of films such as “Die Ehe der Maria Braun” and “Lola Montez” by Rainer Werner Fassbinder and “Gangs of New York” and “Goodfellas” by Martin Scorsese (-> Michael Ballhaus on imdb).
Ah, next week I will have a film premiere. More later. Got to get used to it again 🙂
