Isolate

Juni 12th, 2009

Finally…! What was supposed to be a one-weekend distraction became a two week nightmare with just little sleep, food and relief :)

But it was totally worth it. I am as happy about finally finishing this, as I am with the results.

Special thanks to Katy Rewston, Clementine/meemee-ocean, Heather Meuser, Chris/xenocide666, William Crabtree and David Patterson for their permission to use their artworks/photos and to Zarkrax from amv/org for his fine tutorial and software regarding encoding. I owe you all a lot!

So, what is this video about? I think the title says it all. It’s a collage about various forms of isolation and its roots and consequences.

The main-music is written and performed by Fear Factory. The images are mostly inspired by the above-mentioned artists and redrawn by myself. (see credits for further information)

So enjoy and if you have the time, please leave a comment – I’m very interested in your opinion.

Movies you should know

Februar 23rd, 2011

Moin!

Some time ago, NeoNemesis1 (a guy I’m not acquainted with, who just happens to make awesome movie-compilations) made two movie compilations which are just stunningly awesome, regarding the created atmosphere as well as the list of movies he included.
So please first watch his two compilations.
I watched them a lot of times, but missed some movies.
So I made an unofficial sequel to his vids, which you can find below.
I have to say that I didn’t get the dense atmosphere he created, but maybe people will like my video, too.
So Enjoy!

#1 Some of the best movies ever made – Compilation
#2 Some movies you SHOULD also know! – Compilation
Both videos are made by NeoNemesis1.

My Sequel:

Dexter in the air tonight

November 13th, 2010

Ever noticed how the lyrics of Phil Collins‘ In the Air Tonight fit to Dexter? Well, here you are.
Attention though: Contains major spoilers from seasons 1+2 !!
Sorry, for the unsmooth edges. I don’t know where this is coming from. The first version I uploaded here was way smoother, but had some frame-mistakes.

News / Update

Juli 14th, 2010

Ok, guys and gals, I’m 27 years old now and had a wonderful birthday with some good friends at mount Lousberg here in Aachen, Germany. I also finished a whole lot of duties until today, so there’s not so much left to do except studying for the exams. It will all be over in the middle of august – at least until it all starts again in october. But it means two months to do whatever I want. So there will finally be some progress in my ongoing projects.
I don’t know about the recuts and the AMV-thing, because I kinda lost ideas for that – I will most probably go forward with shooting stuff. Like the Drought³ music video and the short-film/music-video. Also the promotion-spot for DKMS (~german bone marrow donor list). And I’m planning on a kind of low budget feature film in the „woodland-psychothriller“-department. Time will tell. There’s also my scifi-novel, which has been on hold for a few weeks because of time and creativity issues. So be patient… ‚cause Synesthesiated’s still not dead!

GTA IV video

Juni 22nd, 2010

Wow, nine months went by and I didn’t get anywhere. I’m knee deep in masters‘ shit, but the vids I announced in my last entry are just postponed. Actually, I already got some footage for the Drought³ clip. They performed at a German Football League’s game and I recorded it from the players‘ tent. The other vid is currently lacking the female protagonist, who unfortunately moved to Poland (work-related), so I have to refill the spot.

Anyways, I was bored and finally followed up on a request by a friend of mine, who recorded some nice shots in GTA IV and asked me to cut them into a neat video. So here it is. All scenes and the pre-cutting are done by robbenklobber and the music is ripped from a youtube video done by SongeLeReveur, originally written by Yasuaki Fujita for the NES game „Mega Man III“.

Enjoy!

News: Two projects with gorgeous coops

September 13th, 2009

I haven’t posted anything in the last months, so here’s a small update about what’s going on right now:
I’m still heavily working on finishing my bachelor of science, that’s why there hasn’t been any release – but I’ll continue working on the AMV-quadrology in october. The first part is nearly half-finished and imho it’s already really nice :)
But let’s get to the headline! I still can’t believe it, but my current dream (videowise) is about to become true:
This fall I’ll start shooting my own video-footage.
It will be a short-film/videoclip about a young couple which has to deal with carcrash-induced amnesia. The music is done by gorgeous rockband „Lake Cisco“ who are looking forward to it just like me. The credits-music will be from Machinae Supremacy which I don’t have to introduce to most of you I guess. And for a change this video will not infringe any copyrights, for I got official permission to use both bands songs!!
And there’s more: I actually got Michael Kupczyk to appear in a cameo! For those who aren’t familiar with german movies/TV: Michael is a german director, writer, editor and actor. I’m soo looking forward to working with him.

In other news: Small german rockband „Drought³“ asked me to make a videoclip for their upcoming record. I visited them in the studio two days ago where they told me their fabulous ideas for it and I can tell you: It will be a hoot!

So stay tuned, ‚cause Synesthesiated ’s not dead!
