The Alc-Effect

A series of micro-movies (6 x 30sec) for an alco­hol pre­ven­tion pro­ject.

The epi­so­des have a run­time of a few seconds each and show the same dialog bet­ween two guests of a party. One of them is get­ting more and more drunk in each epi­sode.

These epi­so­des were shown to kids who had to guess the actual grade (stage) of the influ­ence of alco­hol.

This is a per­fect example of our 'Stages Struc­ture'!

'attract me' (esci­mos)

Music video 'attract me' for the 'esci­mos'.

The people in this video danced for 10 hours without get­ting paid. (The band - pretty anony­mous at the time - did not have any money for the video...) We recrui­ted most of them in clubs in Berlin, only a few were fri­ends with the band...

Exci­te­ment was so huge -

they didn't stop dan­cing when the shoo­ting was over! :)

beau­ti­ful but dead

This social spot was part of a german anti-aids-campaign. It says 'aids kills EVERYBODY!' (no matter how rich or beau­ti­ful you are)... It was broad­cas­ted for several months across Ger­many by most of the TV-stations.

13 stages - diary of a modern rela­ti­ons­hip (View on flickr)

Love is a living thing.

And like every living thing, it has a begin­ning and an end. And every end offers the pro­mise of ano­t­her new begin­ning... To sim­plify things, let's call this cycle "a modern rela­ti­ons­hip".

On average, the modern rela­ti­ons­hip con­sists of 13 stages:

'13 stages' - Pt. 1

... a nice 27 minute short film before. It was suc­cess­fully broad­cas­ted in 5 euro­pean coun­tries, sold on DVD in the stre­ets of berlin, has won several awards and was partly funded via crowd­fun­ding.

'13 stages' - Pt. 2

... a fea­ture film about the 13 stages of 'Modern Rela­ti­ons­hips'. We deve­lop the script based on a 'com­mu­nity diary' where our fans con­tri­bute their own love sto­ries, help each other with useful tips and sup­porting com­ments, and vote the most inte­res­ting or most heart tou­ching sto­ries... The hig­hest voted sto­ries we are going to shoot with real actors and the most suc­cess­ful videos will make it into the final screen­play. In the end, '13 stages' will be a true com­mu­nity movie, a study about Modern Rela­ti­ons­hips - a por­trait of love in the 21. cen­tury.
