"I think it was 1994 when I held the first video camera of my parents in my hands. Since that day I was infected by the idea of making movies.
The first people I focused my camera on where my friends. I followed them through their life and their passions. The more professional I became the more I lost connection with them.
This series is about reconnecting."
René Eckert (Founder Blickinsfreie), January 2013
Dedicated is a series of short portraits about friends that I have met over the years. Their dedication constantly inspires me everyday.
This series is a tribute to my friends.
Episode 1 focuses on mountaineer and musician Ivo Meier who broke records when reaching 74 major 4000 meter summits in just 35 days. With the years music became his second big passion. Making music helps him in finding balance in life.
This is Ivo Meier.
