With our 2nd film, we worked together with Kai, a 15 years aged young man who loves to listen to music, for example to hard step techno. By doing this, he could easily escape reality, he said to us.
When reality isn’t dreamy, you could still dream yourself away
Kai was excited about possibilities that film and story telling offers. About new realities that are created by the teller. Because in a film, you can claim anything to be true – even a rapping baker or person that is involved in a car accident. At this point, Noise Reduction turns from suppressing real atmosphere sound into enabling a parallel phantasy world, accustically. There is always a space to dream yourself away. Phantasy and imagination have no borders, right?
So, what we needed was two very different worlds. We set up a world from which everyone would love to flee of, and showed on the other hand the possibility of another imaginated world existance – in our main character’s phantasy. Now, guess which one Kai chose?…
At XXVIII. Theaterherbst Greiz, we worked once more with magic: the magic of story telling. This unbeatable fascinating ressource of one’s own phantasy. A power to change life.
Making a small town a cinema spot
For 3 weeks, we stayed in the eastern middle of Germany, in „Thüringen“. In a small town, placed in a so called „low structured area“, with beautiful people living there. Every year they have a theatre festival going on, showing creativity, team spirit and organizational talent.
We produced two cinema short movies within a 3 weeks production phase: „Noise Reduction“ & a 20mins musical called „The Tale Goes On“.
The stars of 2019’s Theaterherbst Greiz are 13 years old
The idea for it came from Samantha and Sina, two 13 years aged girls. They were so well prepared and helped us so much getting things organized, that we could actually deliver a 20min musical film in the end, with them singing and dancing as main characters.
What gives more wings to one’s personal development than such a creative work together – what do you think?
