POINT BLANK: MAKING OF…. EXHIBITION

How to plan your own photo exhibition?  …in the first place: ESCAPE !!!

So we did. Sardinia!  ..the best place to plan such a thing. Bring good music! Bring good books! Buy good local food, vine and beer!

…uhh, yes, and bring such a good muse like my wife Victoria is. Make up your story you wanna tell…  …divide it in subchapters…  …sort out pix…  …kill your darlings… …contact Andrea for a feedback…  …pretend that your ready!

Make the first prints…   …check them…  …kill this guy. Vanish traces from the killing. Look for a new print company. – Make new prints, passe-partouts, frames…   …pretend that your satisfied. Tell the gallery that everything is fine.

Invide the press, TV, radio (or better Lena did that… thanks btw)…   …arrange give-aways, food and large amounts of alcohol for the press conference…  …tell the gallery that everything is fine.

Let the gallery now (by interviews in mags an tv) that everything is fine.

…just wait another four days from now…

..THEN ROCK THE HOUSE !

POINT BLANK: KURVENKLÄNGE / STAND SOUNDS

FOOTBALL CHANTS GO CLASSIC !!!

What a wonderful idea this collaboration of the BOCHUM SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA and the supporters of our VfL Bochum was. This sunday we recorded at the stand of our ground the song “Mein VfL” for a WDR TV broadcast. Believe me, that was so great and we all had such fun.

If someone is interested, the TV broadcast of this will be at the 15th of September about 19:00 at WDR.

Mom will be proud to see me on TV. If you want to see me, I’m the one with the blue jersey at 4:48!
