Internship at Bavaria Film Interactive

What is an internship at Bavaria Film Interactive like? Moritz experienced it: He accompanied our editors and motion graphic artists and was amazed at their different ways of working. Can creativity really be in the air? She can! Can brainstorming be funny AND efficient? Yes! And: Moritz was in the sacred halls of the FTA (film and theatre equipment).

In “Bavaria Film” most people think of big cinema and TV films or well-known series that are shot here. The versatility of Bavaria with its various subsidiaries is not well known to many. This also applies to my friends to whom I told about my summer holiday internship at BFI. No, I’m not going to “Storm of Love” or “Rosenheim Cops.” BFI makes image films, I corrected again and again and could hardly wait!

The first day
After a short briefing in the coffee machine – to keep my own caffeine level in the green area for the next 6 weeks – I already started: brainstorming in the postproduction. I already knew brainstorming sessions from my school’s Film AG, but I was surprised how much faster, more efficient and still fun such a brainstorming among motion graphic artists and editors is. In just under 30 minutes, a good 20 ideas were collected, which were later evaluated, rejected or worked out.

Creativity is in the air
When I have editorial tasks, I sit in the editorial office. It’s pretty quiet here. This is completely different with motion graphics. It’s a busy place. Ideas buzz through the room; discussions are lively. Creativity is in the air. To my surprise, the projects are progressing quickly despite or perhaps precisely because of this lively exchange.

In the sacred halls
Every now and then my jobs actually lead me to the FTA, the film and theatre equipment! What initially looks like a flea market is in fact an oversized collection of furniture, small props and fabrics. Here you will find shelves full of porcelain – either kitschy as by Grandma Erna or ultramodern as in “The Hunger Games”. Hundreds of different chairs, lamps and toys stand side by side in harmony. To look around these “holy halls” as an intern is something very special!

Of course, not all internships are that exciting. Writing transcripts, for example, can be really tedious – especially if the content is boring. Rewind and rewind tapes again and again and type out what has been said. But hey, everybody has to start small! And I hope very much that I can come back after graduation – again without a storm of love

What to Watch Out for When Filming with a Drone?

More and more often, drones are used in professional video productions. Using this technique, images and emotions are created which, until now, could only be realized with high production costs and immense effort. However, a lot of legal requirements need to be considered for every drone production. Our production manager and director Stefanie Behr spoke with Christian Breuer, managing director at our partner firm All About Video GmbH.

Much Ado About Nothing – A Visit at the CMCX in Munich

Whether it was the citywide advertising in Munich, the omnipresent marketing on the Internet (“Europe’s supposedly biggest content marketing event”) or the current hype about the topic ‘content’ – I had high expectations for the Content Marketing Conference & Exposition (CMCX) held in Munich. Much too high, as it turned out.

One-day advertisement for the Querdenker Club

Querdenk

The production of advertisements is a broad field and one that always carries the stigma “…that will be expensive”. Small and medium-sized businesses, smaller institutions and associations with pockets that are not so deeply lined either do not dare approach the issue or are faced with results with a high potential for embarrassment. Continue Reading..

Delivering Tomorrow. The future in 3D.

No-one knows what the future will bring and yet merited experts continue to develop scenarios in their various studies to show us how our world could look and function in a few decades’ time. The Deutsche Post DHL is also focusing on the future with a topic that is of special interest to them: logistics in the year 2050. The related study presents five possible “worlds”, which we were able to bring to life using film.
