TenneT - SylWin1

The adventure of building and installing the most powerful offshore converter station in the world - out there on the North Sea

Rows and rows of gigantic wind turbines produce hundreds of megawatts of green power, out there on the harsh North Sea. A huge converter substation
is needed to connect this vast amount of energy to the German mainland grid. Watch the tremendously challenging adventure of building and erecting
SylWin1, the most powerful offshore converter station worldwide.

The 6.50min. HD movie was shot over a period of 4 years all over Germany and near the island of Sylt on the North Sea,
with myself operating the B-camera. It was produced by NextStep Filmproduktion Munich.

SIEMENS - the giant switch on the high seas

Stormy skies, huge waves, biting wind
and very brave men - how it feels to build a giant HVDC-connection in the middle of the North Sea

Freezing temperatures, biting winds, menacing waves and very unpredictable weather - the North Sea is one of the most challenging workplaces in
the world. But this makes this vast area also the perfect spot for gigantic offshore windfarms, hundreds of kilometers away from the mainland.
To connect these windfarms to the grid is a REAL challenge - technology-wise as well as for the men who do the job...

This film was especially produced for the Siemens Energy Channel.

The 3min. HD movie was shot on RED Epic and Canon C300 on the North Sea island of Borkum as well as on the HVDC-platform BorWin beta,
with myself operating the B-camera. It was produced by NextStep Filmproduktion Munich.

For its brand new brewery complex, Paulaner AG in Munich, Germany needed to get an existing 380KV transmission line out of the way.
A tunnel-installed GIL (Gas-Insulated-Line) by Siemens was the perfect solution. Now, thousands of megawatt run right under the new
brewery - safe and ultimately reliable.

The 5.30min. HD movie was shot on Canon C300 and Canon 5Dmk3 in Munich, Germany with myself operating the B-camera.
It was produced by NextStep Filmproduktion Munich.

JerkFilms, Vienna.

SIEMENS - from offshore to the grid

a long-term film project in the making, spanning 4 years of ultra-complex, groundbreaking grid access work  
 


From the high seas to the grid: up to 1400 MW of green offshore wind power are to be transmitted over more than
100km of rough North Sea to the mainland grid using Siemens' industry-leading HVDC-connection technology.
Huge WIPOS-platforms, transformers, converters, sub-stations, sea- and landcables - an ultra-complex project
that started in 2011 and is well under way. That is also when I started filming and photographing each of the
milestones of this grand adventure, a project that will result in an outstanding Wind Energy / Grid Connection
image film plus several earlier films that show what has been achieved so far.
The first of these films, "From offshore to the grid", was produced for CIGRE 2012 in Paris and shows the
milestones so far - from the groundbreaking of the substations to the launch of the first WIPOS-platform.

The 3.30 min. HD movie was shot on RED and F3 all over Germany, from Warnemünde in the north to Nuremburg
in the south, with myself on the B-camera. It was produced by NextStep Filmproduktion Munich.

vw - bis ans limit

the fascinating story of 100 years of car racing - feature film for the VW car museum at Autostadt Wolfsburg
 
 
 

 
 
Bis ans Limit tells the story of 100 years of car racing - from its humble beginnings right to the latest developments. It was my intention to focus not so much on technology but also to portray the people behind the cars: their dedication, their bravery - their craziness.This quest for speed, to be faster than the competitor, this wish to succeed and risk everything for victory, even the own life...
While technology pushes the limits ever further, the men behind the wheels haven't changed at all. To be the fastest, to cross the winning line first will always mean to go to the limits of man and machine.
It was a truly fascinating experience to shoot the vintage Auto-Union 16 cylinder racing car on a race track in Sicily - what a beautiful monster, what a sound! The type D was built in 1937 and reached with its more than 500 hp over 330 km/h top speed...

The 7 min. feature was shot in Sicily, Italy. It was produced by Neue Sentimental Film Frankfurt for the car museum of the VW Autostadt in Wolfsburg that is situated right next to the main VW car manufacturing plant.
