“They have retired” is part of this year’s shortfilm section of the LICHTER Filmfest Frankfurt International, a festival showcasing an excellent and diverse program on the big screen. Our clip will be screened at 10pm on Friday, March 20 in the very nice Cantate-Saal, a special location for the screenings of all shorts in 2015.

Unfortunately neither me nor Bertram Ritter will attend the screening for the interview after the end of the program – quite a pity as it would have been interesting to have a talk about what is really going on in our latest work. But of course we’re both happy to be a part of the selection of this festival.

Watch the trailer for the shortfilm program 2015:

Desert Dust Cinema Flashback

During the days of the Desert Dust Cinema 2014, Lobo – our little ghosttown in the West Texas area – once again became an unique place for meeting people, sharing ideas, hanging around during daytime and watching incredible international shortfilms in the evenings.

The relaxed atmosphere is hard to put in words, but as usual, here is a short documentation of our time in the desert. A very big ‘thank you’ to all participating filmmakers and all our friends, neighbors and new guests – hope to meet you again at the next DDC.

Desert Dust Cinema 2014 update

Seven weeks before the Desert Dust Cinema 2014 will start in Lobo/Tx, the program schedule is almost complete. About 25 international short films, splitted in two programs for friday 26th and saturday 27th of september will be screened onto the outside wall of the former Lobo gas station.

All participating filmmakers are providing the rights for the screening at this uncommercial festival for free, so there’s a big “Thank You” going out to all artists. A short documentation will be going online hopefully soon after the end of the DDC 2014 on the festival’s website and on this news section too.

Atom™ @ saasfee pavillon

Uwe Schmidt, the man with the uncounted number of aliases (Atom™, Atom Heart, Señor Coconut, Lassigue Bendthaus, Lisa Carbon, Erik Satin and my personal favorite The Roger Tubesound Ensemble – just to mention a very few) recently played once again in his hometown Frankfurt at the saasfee pavillon to introduce his latest release “HD”.

Atom™ already performed as a “pre-opening” act at November 11 2008at the same place, and as I have documentated both events, here are some very very short cuts of both shows.
