The Great Reset Video

The Great Reset

The year is coming to an ending and i decided to make a last music video for this year. A successor to Luvsick from the artist Mike Murena. It’s called “The Great Reset” and represents a thoughtful instrumental work.

The Great Reset is an initiative of the World Economic Forum that envisions a reshaping of global society and economy in the wake of the COVID 19 pandemic. The initiative was unveiled by Prince Charles and WEF Director Klaus Schwab in May 2020 and, by its own admission, aims to improve capitalism.

We assume that everyone has a good intent. For sure it’s a very special topic and nobody of us knows details of this project. This and many other rumors are the base of the Great Reset music project of Mike Murena.

Creation process of the video: This time we made no live video session. Just a collection and queueing of short clips. Of course in 4K. Many great photographers and cameramen helped for that. Including François Truffaut, Michael Anderson and Charlie Chaplin which were the directors of “Fahrenheit 451”, “1984” and “The Great Dictator”. Also a big thanks to Kelly Lacy, Miguel A. Padrian, Ricardo Esquivel, Cottonbro, Mikhail Nilov, Rödolfs Klintsons, Anna Shvets, Pavel Danilyuk, Ron Lach, Joshua, Frank Cone and Dina Eric!

The whole thing is a processing of current events and strange parallels from the past. However, this is not intended to convey a fixed opinion, rather to stimulate new thoughts.

In this sense => Let’s watch the video, form your own opinion and get impressed 🙂

Hollow Cover

Hollow Cover

The last Luvsick music video project is about 8 months ago. Now I’m proud to share the resolution of the Breaking Benjamin cover: Hollow. Isabelle Croft is the artist behind this project, which is singer in the Symphonic Metal Band Flame or Redemption out of Munich.

It was a pleasure for me that a professional graphic designer, coach and musician – like herself – choose myself for the collaboration. We had great gear for the video. A Panasonic Lumix DMC with an associated camera holder and two more phone cameras for other perspectives.

We had luck on the recording day at Blutenburg. Days before were very rainy, but for us was everything perfect. Great sunshine which needed no more lighting. Just some color corrections after the record, but they are minimal.

The Hollow Cover video is based on a free interpretation of the original song from Breaking Benjamin. They got no music video but there self at the moment of making this video. It’s one of the favorite songs of Isabelle and seemed to be her dream to cover this one time. She had held back from this so far and had rather focused on her own songs.

For me was this project a new experience in working with multiple cameras at the same time. In about 7 hours you got a huge amount of material to work for, that’s amazing! Check out the result on Isabelle Croft’s official YouTube Channel =>

Metal Armageddon

Time for new creative work. My last real shirt was done some years ago: Stay Heavy. But today I’m proud to show some cool new stuff. My new drawing for the new Metal Armageddon Event!

The MetalCrew association in which i work wanted to celebrate a new Crewsade of Metal festival 2020. Than Corona happened.. No chance to get so many peoples under one roof. Masks, social distancing and so on..

So new paths had to be taken. Internally were already planes for a concert series existent. Perfect time to take up this point! Together with the Musikklub 14/1 we were able to handle this dream and make it reality.

Instead of the Crewsade of Metal festival we organized a Metal Armageddon concert with 4 bands: Silent Hias, Dunning Kruger, Entoria and Sacrifice In Fire. Wait – Was there not another band? Yeah – Porta Inferi were not allowed to enter germany, because of the pandemic situation. What a fight for the event! It hit us like a bomb and to the surprise exactly that was chosen as festival series logo! Look in the Armageddon merchandise section at the community store.

Metal Armageddon Cap

A huge success in this strange time! Everybody carried a mask, but that wont stop real metalheads! Look at the after movie and convince yourselves:

That was the bomb. Now to the last i want to show you is a bit older funny drawing of myself. Just some simple beer pitchers, that i finally released with this bomb. Look to the cap for example => With this statement I want to encourage every hobby drawer to show there pictures to the world. You can’t lose, it’s so easy as never before to share creations over the internet and print it! Someone is always liking. Just depends on the personal taste 🙂
