Camille, Camille, filmed this spring, will be shown at the 47th International Hof International Film Festival. The film, for which I am responsible as lighting director of photography, will celebrate its premiere there. Some of the team will be on location in Hof the whole time. I am especially curious about the reactions of the audience.
And that’s what this it’s about: “In her loneliness, the young masseuse Camille experiences an everyday life determined by constraints and rules. Not being able to accept herself, she withdraws more and more into a self-imposed isolation. Camille’s controlled life changes upon secret observation of her neighbour, who awakens sexual fantasies in her, and gives her the courage to change.”
The presentation times are already available: The premiere will be on 23.10. (Wednesday) at 7:30 pm in the cinema “Club”. On 24.10. (Thursday) at 22:30 in the cinema “Classic” and on 26.10. (Saturday) at 21:00 in the cinema “City” there will be two more screenings.
This film is a good example of how efficient filmmaking with friends and colleagues can be. Among others, two former colleagues from action concept times, whom I have known for many years, have worked on it. Alexander Pauckner, cameraman and Steadicam operator (also on this film), created fantastic lighting as gaffer. And Mario Loibl, as one of the best camera assistants I know, made everything perfectly sharp even in the most difficult shots. Because we’ve known each other for so long, we were able to respond very well to each other. The independence with which the two of them carried out their tasks allowed me to take a deep breath again and again.
