Kino Kabaret in Munich

From 8 – 17 September, 2017 I participated at Kino Kabaret KinoM in Munich, Germany. Kino Kabaret is an event, where filmmakers, producers, actors, camera, sound, light and décor professionals come together to make short movies. This they do in rounds of 48 – 60 hours. Kino Kabaret is not a competition. It is about solidarity and supporting each other. Mostly actors and camera operators participate in different movies.
In three rounds I was involved in the production of four movies, from which two I wrote the script and directed the movie. Below see the crew of the movie ‘Eine Schlange mit Krawatte’.  This movie, which I directed has been posted at my Vimeo channel.

The videomaking provided us an opportunity to present ourselves!

I have met Simon almost 7 years ago while I was in high school. The great opportunity at that time was learning from the international trainers and their experience on how to build and maintain together the community. Step by step we got closer to the subject of filmmaking, In this way  it gave us the opportunity to represent ourselves and show our contribution to the society we belong to. Simon has been leading the group of young people by giving his great ideas and support in order to produce and harvest the best pieces of our daily activity through the camera lens
