GROOVENOM - 3 Days 3 Musicvideos & How I got involve
Before I start with the little story what my position at the filmset was and how we created these 3 Musicvideo in 3 days I want to show you how I also got this Job.
Mirko Witzki is the Director of photography, We met us on Tour when he went with Any Given Day and I was with Dream On, Dreamer on tour in 2015. We both photographed the bands and filmed the shows.
Couple years later I lived in Australia and want go go back to germany. I ask around people I know for some work projects and I always want to work with Mirko together.
When I ask Mirko Witzki if he need any help or a 2nd camera operator he mean to me that he will be film the Band Groovenom in my hometown Dresden, Germany. There want to film 3 Musicvideos in 3 days which is insane.
Mirko would like to have me on set to help out and shoot some behind the scenes, but he don’t have any budget for this. Then I reached out to the Band because I know them and I offered my service as a 2nd videographer and behind the scenes photographer.
Their already booked an 2nd Camera Operator at this time, but there are happy to have me on set as a behind the scenes shooter and there also need some promo & band photos. Sweet, I’m involved in the project now. Then a week before the first day shooting starts the 2nd Camera operator have to cancel the shoot and I have the opportunity to take this position.
Which was my luck, so that I got booked as a 2nd camera operator, gimbal operator, promo photographer and also behind the scenes photographer and videographer and helping also with the light design on set.
I know I know it was a challenge to get everything together. There was another little problem for me these 3 shooting days where on 19th Nov, 2018 till 21st Nov, 2018, but I also had a job on 22nd Nov, 2018 where I have to fly to Belgium for the 24 days ”Black Flame” European tour with the Band “Bury Tomorrow”.
Crazy but I can do it I just have to plan everything well to make it happen :-) btw it work out really well
We had all a lot of fun on these 3 days and worked all well together. Sandro Geißler from Groovenom organised everything really well. The weather was just a bit cold which challenged everyone of us.
Enjoy all the videos and the behind the scenes.
