"Ink." at the Schweizer Jungfilmfestival Luzern

On the 22. and 23. of november the "Schweizer Jungfilmfestival Luzern" is held for the 10th time in Lucerne. Our short experimental film "ink." will be screened on those two days in the bourbaki cinema. We're quite excited and hope to see some familiar faces... and some new ones as well of course! So come by and have a chat and a beer with us!

Making of 'Ten Years Safari - a place to skate'

The established skate- and design label ‘Safari’ made a movie as a present for their 10 year anniversary. For this we took care of implenting the intro. The shoot took place in a hidden shack which contained a miniramp, somewhere in the swiss mountains. Inside the shack we arranged a small living room which can be seen towards the end of the intro.

Thanks a lot to Patrick Pytell and the boys of the "Screamcat Ramp" for letting us shoot at this awesome location.

Super 8 Test - z'Basel an mym Rhy, 1970

I've always liked shooting on real film. Whether photography or moving pictures. There's something quite magical about shooting on real film. Every shot is thought over... because every shot costs you money.This short film was mainly to to determine whether camera, film and workflow still work the way one expects. The footage was taken at the rhein docks in Kleinhünigen, Basel. A kodak ektachrome color reversal film was used, which posses space for solely 3,5 minutes of film material.

Fortunatelly it seems like everything works the way it should. Even though it's a bit pricey, I most definitely wanna work with this distinctive and unique format. It really hooked me again! In this spirit - film is dead. long live film!

Shooting Day - XXX Tattoo

For our next project at the university we documented the work of the very talented tattoo artist Lukas Speich at the XXX Tattoo Studio in Lucerne. With the help of animated typography we try to show (and to a certain degree explain) the work of a tattoo artist and the process of tattoing.
