Hi there, I am a graphic- & interactive designer based in Germany. If I'm not behind the screen you will find me on the move. Have fun going through a comprehensive mood about my life.

Len10 is Back!

After nearly a year long recovery from ankle surgery, how far would you push yourself in your first sessions back on the water?

Looks like he is really back!

The art of 2000fps


There is a lot of footage out at the moment using the extreme 1000 – 2000 fps slow motion technique from twixtor. It’s always amazing to see the movement in such detail and emotion. But far too often people set their focus during editing just on the slow motion part of the video and forget about the rest. “Shambler 2000fps” is not just another slow motion video but far more a piece of art in film making. Perspectives, cropping, compositions and music are very carefully selected and turn this film into a great experience.

Follow the past …


Some days ago I found out that the “pagination” of my blog wasn’t working correctly. If you are not familiar with those terms, it’s the < previous > and < last > functionality at the bottom of the blog. It takes you back in the history of the blog content.

No I found a quite handy solution and it works great. So if anybody wants to follow the past, feel free and have fun.


First Canon 7D Test


I’ve upgraded myself from the Nikon D90 to a Canon 7D and shot some first footage and still images today from Lola at the playground. I still try to find the best camera settings on Manuel mode with the Canon EF-S Zoom lens – 18 mm – 135 mm – F/3.5-5.6 – Canon EF. But already I’m really impressed by the speed and quality of the 7D. The handling is just amazing and well thought through. Easy to access the important settings with short cuts and there is no need to become a finger acrobat or take piano lessons to control the camera. Even that the 7D uses a metal body and the D90 a mix of metal and plastic, the D90 felt a bit more solid than the 7D. But the sizes of these two cameras are already very different. To shoot also smaller images (Mode M,S) as RAW images is a very nice thing to have. Also the speed of 8 images/second is very high. So I feel already addicted to the new camera. Sure there is plenty of room to increase the quality with the right camera settings and for sure with a nice f1.4 aperture lenses, but that’s next.

I shot the footage with 50fps and color corrected it in Premiere Pro.

Camera: Canon 7D with Canon EF-S Zoom lens – 18 mm – 135 mm – F/3.5-5.6 – Canon EF

Music: El Ten Eleven / My Only Swerving


Wow … that looks like a very intereseting movie to watch.

In the 1980s an intrepid Australian pilot left behind a surfboard in the seaside village of Vanimo, Papua New Guinea.

Twenty years on, surfing is not only a pillar of village life but also a means to prestige. With no access to economic or educational advancement, let alone running water and power, village life is hermetic.

A spot on the Papua New Guinea national surfing team is the way to see the wider world; the only way.
