  3. I think it was in the time of spring 2012, when I came across David Shiyang Liu's lovely piece of work about Ira Glass. It was the most inspiring and motivating video I had ever seen in my life. I watched it over and over again, listened to Ira Glass' voice, and told myself, that I am not the only person who is constantly disappointed about the gap between one's taste and one's skills. Later in 2012, I decided to do my own filmed version of Ira's interview - using my own language to tell his message. It took me about a year from concept to upload.

    I made it for myself and for anybody who is in doubt about his/her creative career. I also think that Ira Glass' message isn't only limited to the creative industry. It can be applied to everyone who starts out in a new environment and is willing to improve.

    THANK YOU
    Ira Glass, whom I've never met in real life, but who had such a big influence on my development. Thank you for telling beginners what nobody else does.

    David Shiyang Liu for the video that inspired me to start the project. You all should watch his awesome kineticTypo-version here: vimeo.com/24715531

    Orange Hive Studio for light equipment and location.
    Mima and Heinz Sax-Schmitz for the location of the "ambitions" take and finding me the "finish 1 story" typewriter.

    A SPECIAL THANK YOU
    Solveig Gold for being the most patient and supporting person in my life. She appears in a lot of scenes in this video.
    Jutta and Uwe Sax for several pieces of equipment and their support.

  4. After the writer and theologian John Hull became completely blind in 1983, he kept an audio diary of his experience. This film is a dramatization using those recordings.

    Thanks for the tip, Matt! What a beautifully made film. Also, the Media Fields Journal looks fantastic.

    It is a voice that emerges as the girl approaches the idea of walking as strategy, an everyday practice that allows her to blur boundaries between the binaries of insider/outsider, documentary/fiction, oppressor/victim, amateur/professional, liberal/fundamentalist, much in the way the reenacted home movie that she creates complicates boundaries between truth/fiction and history/memory.
