The Genesis of the film

In a short lecture, I will speak about the Genesis of the Film.
A broadcaster dealing with new technologies who wants to have the know-how at the sender and thus starts a own production in that field.
From the beginning, after we had seen different experts out of different programs, it was clear to us that landscapes and events especially capturing the depth within are especially suitable.
The idea of following the brothers „Huberbuam“ was immediately born. After a first talk in decembre 2010, Thomas and Alexander were convinced to take part in the film project that previously had been planned to be a 15 min feature. Thus, our Team had to face different challenges: how do we shoot at escarpments? Which camera equipment are we supposed to take? For me as an author, another question appeared: Which story am I going to tell?
Being able to cope with all questions was due to the incredible team standing behind the Huberbuam´s.
The talk will be about this. And about how there was an internationally successful 45´min feature out of a planned as 15min, that got it on and gave a lot of commendation to the station ZDF for its innovative work.
