Making-Of Photo Shoot ‘City Shaolin’ – Los Angeles, USA, 11/2012

November 22nd, 2012

Here come some first raw making-of shots and the making-of video of our guerilla photo & video shoot ‘City Shaolin’ in the vibrant streets of downtown Los Angeles. Glad that we found corners for ourselves. Or if not just randomly blocking the road traffic by jumping on the streets to take advantage of the unique light & shade play.

Props go out to my brother Jo Blankenburg filming, editing and composing music for the action, Yuichiro Sixtwo Oku assisting and composing music either. Not to forget gorgeous model, actress & passionate martial arts fighter Catherine Chen performing like a tiger!

It features a breathtaking new song composed by Jo Blankenburg, with vocals by Maya Haddi. The video consists of photographs captured during my visit to Syria in 2010, along with poetry by Nitish Raina.

We will be selling the song on iTunes for 0.99$, with all proceeds going to the International Committee of the Red Cross for Syria.

Video Shoot for Jo Blankenburg / Position Music, Czech Republic, 05/2012

May 22nd, 2012

Back from a super exciting video shoot with my brother Jo Blankenburg in the Czech Republic. For his 2nd music trailer album released by Position Music, Los Angeles we traveled to the sophisticated Cinematic Concert Hall in the Czech Republic.

I was geared up to teeth with my fancy filming gadgets: steady cam (hell! that’s a mission controlling this wiggling piece of iron), Dolly (ok, a small rail but effective) and a handful of tripods.

This was a welcome change for me. I usually capture athletes in their surroundings – this being my main focus, but once in the concert hall, filming these expert violinists up–close and seeing their fingers race across the strings, I realized that this could be just another extreme sports discipline.

3 days packed with 14 hours per day of recording and filming more than 130 (!) members of the orchestra topped by the young, 12 year-old singer Dominik and the very old, but never less experienced score reader Igor. Last-but-not-least not to forget the coordinator and phantastic conductor of Capellen Orchestra Petr Pololanik who managed confidently the tight schedule.

Now we’re in the cutting room and in the next weeks there will be a promotion video released at my brothers and my youtube – channel.

We’ll keep you updated on our Facebook pages: https://www.facebook.com/andy.fox.globalstoryteller https://www.facebook.com/jo.blankenburg

Here come some frame-grabs of the raw HD video footage:

Multimedia Project “OIL SPILL – THE HUMAN UEBERFLUSS” – Kick Off @ 61st Berlinale

March 2nd, 2011

My brother Jo and myself are fairly exhausted after debuting and launching our multimedia project “OIL SPILL – THE HUMAN UEBERFLUSS” (http://www.oil-spill.de) in the Urania event center while the stars gathered on the red carpet at the Potsdamer Platz in Berlin.

We want to thank everybody who supported us: mentally by heart and financially. That’s something we take not for granted.

After the show is before the show…and we are planning to present our project in cities allover Germany and Austria. Please follow us on our facebook fanpage: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Oil-Spill/163649463675791
