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! :)
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.
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.
... 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.
