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 =>

Mike Murena Luvsick

Luvsick Video

Time for a new post! I’m proud to announce another music video for Mike Murena and his new song called Luvsick.

For the first time I give up the Green Screen for the production. Even the on site recordings are not from myself, but what breathtaking material! In July 2020 a crop circle appeared near the Bavarian Ammersee. Mike decided to use this unique location for the shoot of his music video Luvsick. It’s about an outer space love affair and the mysterious unworldly cereals appearance fit perfect to this music output.

You can create great thinks with the studio screen, but i must admit that a one site recording will win for sure. It looks way more realistic and I claim that it’s less complex than a recording on a small 2x3m green screen.

The longest music video I`ve ever made has been created. Also the most cuts were done.

Learned many new things. The imported ones were the stronger video orientation on the base of the music and the usage of color gradings.

A great new intuition was the embedding of the lyrics. My first intention was the i use Apple Motion for that, but realized fast that this is to costly. So i search for the easier and faster option..

Found a nice affordable lyrics plugin for Final Cut from FxFactory. That did the job quite well. It’s fastly installed and easy to use. It comes with many presets and motions for the text, which can be customized with individual fonts, colors and text positions. Even if i should switch from Final Cut to a Adobe product, it’s still compatible with Premiere and After Effects. That’s a awesome service and made about 50$ a fair price for me.
