Just in case you missed it, here’s the Time-Lapse Webinar I hosted for Entube Center (Ministry of Youth and Sports) about how to ‘Create your own time-lapse film today’ – Watch the full 1 hour Webinar here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eK3e6y1l6Co
DSLR cameras have significantly changed the landscape in the film industry. Cameras like the Canon 5D and 7D have been the top choices for indie filmmakers in the past couple of years. At film festivals across the world, short films, documentaries and even feature films are being shot on those cameras. What the DSLR represents in the film industry today, is an affordable solution for high end filmmaking.
Big thanks to all colleagues, friends, business partners and followers – who always supported and helped to make this year the most amazing year ever. Looking forward to make 2015 another successful one, got some new challenging projects coming up – stay tuned Wishing you all lots of healthiness, contentedness, happiness and success. Love Alex

Here’s some pictures I took during my short trip to NYC while walking through Manhattan. This city literally never sleeps, even at 3am in the morning one can buy hot dogs and has to queue up eventually.. Anyway, I flew in for the weekend to attend Vincent Laforet’s ‘Directing Motion Workshop’, and it was totally worth the trip ;)
(Updated April 25, 2014) Today my new toy – the ‘MōVI M5’ from FREEFLYSYSTEMS – arrived at my holiday location in Vienna, Austria (only 5days after the final payment was transferred). It came in a huge box, bigger than expected. Ok, it comes with the additional Controller (for dual operator mode) and DP4 HD monitor… can’t wait to open the box. Will update this blog within the next hours and share my unboxing experience, detailed info about the foam rubber measurements to find the right size for the transport case, my personal user experience comparing it to the MōVI M10 – which I have used a lot in Doha these days. I’ll also publish all details about the additional costs when importing it to Europe (customs clearance, VAT, shipping). Enjoy reading.

Dear friends, colleagues & clients,
I had an amazing year 2013 – successfully produced, directed and contributed to more than 30 projects around the world – was lucky enough to work with creative & like-minded people in Doha, Barcelona, Costa Rica, Vienna, Munich, London, Dubai and Crete. Am now taking a couple of days off to recharge and meet my family back home – before I start into the new year 2014 with confirmed projects coming up first week of January.
THANK YOU ALL AND WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014!
Had an amazing day with my film-making class! Thanks for coming, you rocked it!
My film ‘One Moment’ was mentioned in the ACMP blog and is competing along 6000 other entries for the MarCom Awards.
