We regularly film and produce classical music videos and recently we had the pleasure to film Gregorian Chants in the beautiful St. Magnus church at the Abbey in Bad Schussenried, southern Germany. We decided on a very smooth and slow “moving camera” style using a gimbal and drone. This resulted in images which seamlessly flow into each other and this heightened the almost mystical effect which Gregorian chant evokes.
Our first venture into TV production was in the early 90’s when we focused on portraying the “weird and wonderful” and at times completely off the wall eccentrics from the UK. German TV eagerly broadcast these clips and we rapidly built up a reputation as the crazy Brits based in Frankfurt.
We then went full on and made a 6 part series entitled “Bizarre Brits” which equally gained success on the international markets. We were showing our films in Japan, Korea, Australia, USA, South Africa, and throughout Europe.
In the mid 90s we got serious and produced our first documentary about “Fox Hunting in the UK” for the German broadcaster ARD. Parallel to this we started producing mini docs on a regular basis for ARD, ZDF and 3SAT covering socially relevant topics and “Tomorrow’s World” type of programmes showing new discoveries in science and medicine.
