The Children Beyond

I had a new challenge which is probably regarded as the world's most complicated topic - religion. Studio Seeschau is taking on new grounds with their Beyond project and is mixing a music CD together with 6 different believes on one music CD. It gets done through the voices of children. Not an easy project. Firstly, because one is working with normal, energetic children and secondly the topic of believe. The material was shot by famous filmmaker and photo Journalist, Alberto Venzago and I had the honour of cutting it together. I took the job very seriously and analyzed every step I took. The goal was to cut a pre-trailer from the footage to show to potential sponsors and distributors before the real filming and recording start. Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Sikhism - all edited together in the first of many more edits and filming to come. If you really break it all down it simply comes to love... and love never fails.

The Horse

Another short Polo clip I made for the St. Moritz Polo Club.
The challenge was not use any soundtrack and just working with other natural sounds.

iMac - Problem

Recently I have been having problems with my iMac. It puts itself to sleep whenever it wants and it became impossible to work. A good friend told me that he once had similar problems and they tried everything to fix it. Hardware, software and hard drive tests couldn't cure the problem. Eventually after sending it in for repair, they stated that the dirty fans caused overheating, which send the computer into a sleeping mode. So I called a friend that knows it all about Mac's in the valley. He is also the only guy I know that even has the tools to open an iPhone. Well, we took my poor little iMac to pieces. So much so that I thought we would never be able to get it back in working order again. The fans were pretty dusty and with his vacuum cleaner we sucked the entire Mac spotlessly clean. After cleaning we slowly reassembled it the way we found it and to my surprise the machine worked again in perfect harmony. Heehaa....
