Time goes by and before I really realized I spent 10 years working for Leo Burnett Germany and Italy. Yes, 10 years it’s a long time and it doesn’t make “moving out” easier. So even nicer that my colleagues organized a day trip to Rüdesheim, a beautiful wine area nearby Frankfurt. The motto of the day seemed to be “Transportation”! How many different can you fit into one day trip. U-Bahn, Train, Bus, Cable Car, Seat Lift (?), Boat, Train, Taxi … But it was great fun and the weather and country side was gorgeous. Like Lola who wanted to join us when she heard we doing a team outing. Thanks to my colleagues and good luck to Simon and Nikita who are also leaving the team.
3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ….into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films…..
= a trip of a lifetime.
