After my friends at the Point con­fer­ence pre­ma­turely uploaded a video that had nei­ther been filmed pro­fes­sion­ally, nor edited at all, Frerk Lintz, a col­league who actu­ally makes films for a liv­ing, came to my stu­dio and shot a few sequences. We decided not to make a voice-over because if you don’t get what’s going on, this video isn’t for you in the first place.

Frerk runs a web­site with great video inter­views. Most of them are in Ger­man, but all of them are fun to watch.

  1. There were 200 prints, signed and num­bered. I printed no. 250 just for me.

  2. I really enjoyed this. I’ve watched it twice. I like using older machine sys­tems because it really makes you look at what you’re doing and think about your work in a new way. Of course, it’s not always a very real­is­tic thing to do, using older machin­ery, espe­cially now with the Internet.

    Kudos to your pro­fes­sional friend. I wish I had the time to sit down and learn the basics of video edit­ing so that I could at least upload videos that look not-horrendous but…I have so many other things to do that yeah maybe not.

    Is there still a chance to get a signed print?


    1. Nein, lei­der nicht. Die Jungs von der Point Kon­ferenz haben alle weggegeben. Ich habe höch­stens in Berlin noch ein paar unnum­merierte, die müsstest du dir abholen.
