What a night. My mail account got flooded as „STREAM – Explore The Unseen“ became a Vimeo Staff Pick. Maybe just 5 minutes of fame, but for me it is something special. Macro cinematography is a young genre of experimental art film, but I fell in love with it the moment I discovered it. This super tiny world of formations and movements is not only visually attracting, to me it means an ode to beauty and aesthetics. However, it is a big challenge to deal with this special interest because capturing motion pictures in this kind of reproduction scales is demanding. You need so much pacience and control of your technical setup that you are not willing to do it without passion. And you better get used to fail because chemicals and fluids will not behave like and actor who memorized his script. Story structure becomes a complete different task. It may take several month just to achieve a good sequence of a minute, and that’s why I appreciate the work of people like Susi Sie, Clemens Wirth and Kim Pimmel so much as it is an extraordinary effort to create these kind of visual worlds! If you don’t want to go the extra mile, there is no chance to get there.
This is not a business, it comes from the very bottom of my heart.
Thank’s to all of you.
