The direction is the heart and focus of our entire offer. We see it as an important and great responsibility to implement ideas and the script in a creative and unique way in moving images. A certain level of competence is also necessary. We always have to be sensitive to the individual scene on site in order to be able to model, change and expand it.
The task of a director is not only to accurately implement a written story, but often to find alternatives without looking like an alternative. The story must grab the viewer as a film and not let go until the end. Each scene has its meaning and contributes to the overall message. Everything has to fit in the end.
General information about the direction:
"To make smart mistakes
is a great art. "
- Federico Fellini
The quote from Federico Fellini exactly reflects our experience gained with a camera.
We tried a lot and, of course, made a lot of mistakes.
To take a good camera shot requires a sure hand, a good ear and a great deal of creativity.
Our experience in working with cameras led us to the statement: There is no fixed camera setting, there is no fixed light balance, there is no fixed focus. Everything varies. We adapt.
Our camera experience spans the following areas: documentation, music video, feature film, live camera (handheld camera).
We are also happy to work with external
"Few write how an architect builds, who has previously drawn up a plan and thought it out in detail; rather, most only write the way you play dominoes."
- Arthur Schopenhauer
Writing a screenplay is our passion, which has developed in parallel with filmmaking.
Creating a story is a process. It takes perseverance and patience until the story gets its finishing touch and is ready to be translated into the moving image. We focus on every single moment in the scene. Every moment has its justification and its own goal. This type of control and post-processing happens so often after the script is written, until we are happy with the result.
This type of control must never oppose creativity. It is important to us at all times to ensure that creativity is completely free. It leads the story and determines every moment.
Our script writing in essential steps:
2. Writing the synopsis
Includes storyline, time, location, main characters, narrative perspective and conflicts
3. Writing the treatment
Describes the main action lines divided into scenes.
4. Writing and editing the script
Contains dialogues and describes the time and place of the action, locations, props, costumes, sounds, light and mood
5. Consultation with the director / producer
I am like a cook. When a film is finished, I sit down and see if others like it.
- Roman Polanski
An editor or cutter is actually like a cook. The mixture has to be right and in the end it should taste excellent.
We spend at least half of our working time in the editing room.
Cutting is a matter of time, sensitivity and precision. It is equally important to have a feeling for time and rhythm. At the same time, we are sensitive to all creative processes in our heads so that we can try them out and implement them quickly.
You always feel a certain tension while cutting. Is this the right take from the scene, or is it the other one? Was it possible to build the dramaturgy according to the director's ideas? Do I understand the action in the scene as it should be understood?
Many other questions keep coming up during editing. At mediawelle we answer them one by one in the process and weave them into the material.
