So, what the hell have I been doing for the past 2,5 years? Where are the new posts? The new gear reviews? The new photos?
Well, other than fast-touring through a rather painful peritonitis on my Bike Friday PRP en route to Zurich and later being considered dead for about a week…
I was shooting a feature film. As a director, DP and editor.
And today, I’d like to show it to you. For free. In 720p quality.
A feature-length documentary, Kvadrat explores the realities of techno DJing, using the example of Andrey PUSHKAREV, a Russian DJ recognized worldwide.
I filmed it as a hybrid between a road-movie and a music video, to not only illustrate the festive atmosphere of techno night clubs, but also to reveal the lesser known side of this profession: weeks of track selection, lengthy travel, difficult schedule. The film suggests to reconsider the stereotype of a popular musician, to find out whether the artist is happy, to ponder what’s most important to him and his audience?
Shot in Switzerland, France, Hungary, Romania and Russia, the film omits the typical documentary elements: no interviews, no explanatory voice-over, no facts, no figures. The visuals and the techno music replace them, leaving the detailed interpretation to you.
Find out more on the film’s web site… And tell me what you think about it.
