Vienna Sunshine (Fictional Woody Allen Opening Scene)

Proud to present my latest project. As most of you already know, I’m originally born and raised in Vienna and have permanently lived in this beautiful city till my late 20ties. Until one day I decided to take the next step and move to Doha, Qatar. It’s been almost 7 years now, so much to how fast time flies by…. Coming back to visit my friends and family always ends up very emotional and one can feel the love and prospering live this charming city carries within.

As a big Woody Allen fan, I always wondered why he never filmed here, maybe he’s to busy. Anyway, I couldn’t get the thought of what it would look like and how it would turn out, out of my head. So here’s to how this project finally started.

If Woody Allen were about to make a movie in Vienna, this would probably be his opening scene.
Slow Jazz music combined with the cinematic look of yellowish, bronze & brownish colored beauty shots of the city. Inspired by the ‘Midnight in Paris’ opening scene, this project was shot (on a Sony A7s) & edited between August 4-7, 2015 on location in Vienna, Austria. Graded with FCPX color and Filmconvert. Music by Sidney Bechet – Si Tu Vois Ma Mère

Cheers Alex

Aquapark TVC – BTS

Had a good time directing the new TV Commercial for Aquapark Qatar. Great cast & crew. Worked with some amazing new talents. Love it to see my storyboard ideas getting reality ;)

One thing though, our drone pilot crashed a DJI Phantom 2 with mounted GoPro4 into the water. Happens ;)
‘Enjoy’ the crash footage and some of the BTS photos.

First test footage: Phantom 2 with GoPro 3 and H3-3D gimbal

First Flight ViennaFrame grab from the test footage

First test footage shot in Vienna today (May 13, 2014) with the new Phantom 2 copter with GoPro Hero 3 and Zenmuse H3-3D gimbal. It was my first flight and all went fine. The outcome blew me away, more than I ever expected. The battery lasted around 25mins. Will shoot some more stuff this week.
