My friends of art publisher DRAW A LINE asked me to shoot a making of video for one of their upcoming prints by Berlin based artist OSIF SEIKSUH. The goal was to show the complexity of creating a Lithography in combination with the amazing aesthetics of the old printing machine at TABORPRESSE Berlin.

I got assisted by my man Martin Wolf who helped me in this 2,5 days shoot with the second camera! I still like to see the heaviness of the machine in combination with the final artwork and I think it will help to understand the whole process of Lithography viagra canada.

My latest film for ABOUTNOW comes (again) from New York, where we met Kiernen Costello of aNYthing to take a closer look behind his brand from the Lower East Side. It was kinda hard to shoot the film because everything was organized very last minute and we just had one day to shoot 9 Interviews all over New York. But with the help of Kiernen and the people around him it was kinda fun in the end.  I like the result for it’s rough pictures and editing but I would have wished, that we would have had more time to digg a little deeper in the New York topic. Maybe next time than! Make sure to jump over to ABOUTNOW to see more pictures by my man Stefan Haehnel! More BEHIND THE SCENES picture after the jump… Read more…

Last year I spend a week in Toronto were Nicolai Nierman and me produced some films for iGNANT and Mercedes Benz. As a little side project we were visiting some interesting people around the city and shot little portraits of them. For our last video we met up with Reilly Hodgson who is running the brand NO FUN PRESS and the Fanzine Blood Of The Young over there. We had a fun day sneaking through Toronto and hang out with the nice guys of his crew. It was basically the perfect situation to shoot a portrait, where you instantly connect to the other person the totally trust you in what you are doing.

In postproduction I wanted the film to break out of the “boring” portrait structures. We wanted to connect the film to the aestehtics of their Fanzine and overall lifestyle and so we broke the linear structure through different kind of songs and the usage of OFF-Footage you normally wouldn’t take in. I like the result and for me it’s still fun to watch the video. Make sure to jump over to their Online-Shop and support Reilly and the Toronto fam. !

ABOUTNOW was asked by NIKE to exclusivly shoot their new F.C. Real Bristol Collection. This imaginery football club was founded 15 years ago by japanese designer Kiyonaga for fun but developed into a little hype over there. Now F viagra france prix.C.R.B. is entering the rest of the world and we are happy to be a part of it.

For the photoshooting at Yorck Studios Berlin I was asked to do a little Making Of. But since I was kinda bored of standing behind the photographer an doubble-grab their frames I decided to experiment a little bit on location and in postproduction. I like the direction the video took and I think there is a lot of space to work on if you think outside the normal 16:9 frame. See all the pictures over at ABOUTNOW or pasted in the streets of Berlin.

You are propably super bored of my New York Posts, but we are really working our asses off everytime we are there! I really can’t sit still in this city. So many opportunities, such an visual impact. In this Episode we visited Kevin from A Shine & Co in Chelsea Street Market. My man Martin came up with the idea and so I left him doing his thing and sat back to get a nice fresh shine on Martins old Desert Boots. Good Job boy! Follow his work here and make sure to hire the kid for you’re next projects! Jump over to ABOUTNOW to see some more pictures!

Another one from our last visit to New York City. We met Osoré Oyagha from Ale Et Ange in New Yorks Garment District to film a little Editorial for ABOUTNOW. I kinda like the whole mood of the film although it was a little Hit & Run since we just had half an hour for the whole shoot!

During one of our last trips to New York we met the bros of Street Etiquette in Brooklyn and spent a day with them hanging out in the city. It was quite special for Martin and me because they took us to some really cool places like their old High School up in the Bronx. Watch the film I edited from this day to check out more and make sure to jump over to Street Etiquette to learn more about the amazing style of Travis & Joshua. See some more pictures of this day after the jump.  Read more…

VIDEO – 4 Days to Detroit

18.February 2014

4 Days to Detroit from ABOUTNOW on Vimeo.

As you might recognized Nico and me went on a roadtrip through the United States in January. The challenge was to drive about 1400 miles from Houston to Detroit in just 4 days. It was a lot of fun and there was nearly no minute we didn’t have a camera in our hands to capture the trip. Although it was quite rough to drive 8 hours a day we still got some nice footage. We really took every second to film and I’m really really looking forward to another opportunity where we have more time for such an amazing project. Anyway it was nice to see the film develop and we definitely went a next step with a professional Voice Over by the amazing Jeremiah Costello ! Thanks to the good guys over at Mercedes Benz for making this happen. We look forward to upcoming projects with you! Read more…

Brandy & Coke

I still remember the first UK Garage mixtape I bought back in 2001 when I used to live in Munich at that time. The Rhythms blew me away and after I was a exhausted by the late 90s HipHop it was so fresh to hear these rolling sounds mixed up with RnB and House music prix du viagra au qu. Sadly non of my friends got into it and I couldn’t find any Raves going on over in Germany. So after a while UK Garage and 2Step disappeared more and more and was replaced by it’s harder brother Drum’n’Bass which was more excepted because the cool kids didn’t like RnB vocals on any track! But for me growing up with vocal house I always had a secret passion for UKG and for me it still is the foundation for the music we play in our clubs today.

VIDEO – Welcome to MIAMI

18.December 2013

Check out some more picture I took at Art Basel Miami before two weeks over at iGNANT! I also shot a little teaser video you can see above! I guess next time I gonna take more than a half day time for that!

Some months ago I was asked to shoot a portrait of Julia a.k.a. Sneakerqueen for Baby-G. We wanted to show some snippets of Julias life as a collector and photographer in her hometown Berlin. Actually we wanted to hang outside and capture a more urban environment but somehow we catched the most shitty day of the whole summer and we had to reorganize. So we tried to use every single sunray to pop up the video out of the grey and rainy tristesse.

Find more pictures here.

I’m kinda cheesy these days. Beautiful Remix of Junior Jack´s – “My Feeling”. You can hear more of Dubson over here!

Love the song. Love the Video. Vincent Haycock = King.

I’ve been traveling again and it’s quiet fun to bring back some moving memories. I love travel photography with all it’s different aesthetically opportunities compared to your home culture. But moving images are just a different thing where you can transport a certain athmosphere of place in a bigger range.

The task for us always is how we deal with the storyline. Do we focus on a certain location or character or do we produce an overall film? In the first case you’ll have to find some interesting persons who work in front of the camera and can speak at least some english. In the second case you have to collect pictures over pictures. You’ll never know what you will get out of the footage in the end and the process is much more spontanious.

Here you’ll see 2 examples of the second kind. In the first one – Clemens and me went to the caribbean island of Curacao and in the second film I went to NewYork to do a Recap of the EXPO 1: New York opening in MoMA PS1.

For May 1st I got asked by Luzia Bar in Berlin Kreuzberg to document their Party on Oranienstr. After Sel’s Inside Luzia Videos from the last years it was quit a challenge to follow his footsteps because I always liked the mood he presented in his videos.

Nowadays when you see Event Recaps on every corner of YouTube and Vimeo I really had to think about what a good party recap video makes.. So for me it’s not about technique or equipment. It’s about presenting the feeling that you’ve been part of the event and not just some external filmteam that shots one complete view after another without getting close.

So my deal was to get into the epicentre of the party and get connected with the people. I like the result I got in the end. It’s shows a rough handheld camera work but it supports the authentic dynamic picture. I hope you like it and somehow feel the energy of the party cause thats always the goal.

Everyday

What would you do if we would have one extra day? What should you do – EVERYDAY? via CultMagazine



I allready told you last year that in 2013 a whole new generation of young HipHop artists will rise aside from the fast lane Trap buizz. “The Underachievers” are one of them and mood you right into a warm summer vibe right now. Reminds me a bit of Souls of Mischiefs “93 till Infinity” . I love the smoothness and the flow of the kids and of coure you can’t beat the Westcoast light of the video! Watch out for them – they’ll get biggggg!

Vine

20.February 2013

Last Saturday I got a call by Clemens who told me that I instantly have to download Vine and try it out. To sum up what this is all about – it’ s an Instagram for Videos and it’s fucking awesome.

You have 6 seconds to record a video non stop or cut it into different scenes by stop touching the screen. Easy as that. Right now I play the game of making the app a party and look for the usual suspects to find and follow. The cool thing is that everyone is hyped about the app and sees the big Plus compared to Instagram – the motion including the sound. You can go for visuals or tell short stories and I’m sure sooner or later we will see some kind of Vine Awards coming up.


One of the biggest challenges is that you really have just 1 chance to record. If you don’t like your recording you have to delete it. So no faking, no filtering – just straight out the box. Show me what you got!?

I’m excited about all the possibilities you have and the influence the app has. I figured out that I like to use it to capture the mood and feel of events like at Danny Seth last night. It tells you much more than an Instagram pic and I think to use it for this kind of stuff is the plus I see right now.

So if you wanna follow me just search for DT64. Let’s have some fun!

Zeit Episode Numero 6

11.February 2013


It’ s been more than a year now since I released my last Zeit Episode. If you don’t know them yet – these are Snapshot Videos of moments in my life that somehow catched my attention. I leave them uncommented and when I shoot them I don’t relate them to any bigger concept. Only when I arrange them in the video I finally see the bigger picture.
