TheReelHour • TheReelHour - Steffen Gentis, Chief Production Officer BBDO Germany and GoSee are giving away the final space, apply now! Plus a mini quest with Steffen on film and photo for you on GoSee

In 2013 GoSee’s TheReelHour premiered. We made it our mission to present the work of photographers who have potential when it comes to film and are already working in this area. From the very get go we were able to win over Steffen Gentis, Chief Production Officer BBDO Germany for our project. This admittedly made it easier to grab the attention of many a creative. And so we are even more delighted that Steffen has also taken the time in 2014 to support us once more – to celebrate this we are giving you the opportunity to vie for the last free place at the TheReelHour 2014.

10 years of the Directors Lounge – what was your highlight?
The XYRL Event which is currently taking place and you have featured on your site, made me suddenly realise. 10 years! Absolute madness.

What is the next event? We heard it is Hamburg?
That’s right, after our guest appearance in Berlin we will be heading to Hamburg. The location has been confirmed – we still have a couple of logistics to tie up – it is always a little more complex for us when we hold a Director’s Lounge at a different location. I’m sure, however, that you GoSee’s already know where it’s taking place.

TheReelHour, is a bit like our GoSee-Junior-Version, except that we mainly deal with ...

film & photo • Andrea Heberger : stop motion commercial for DIE GRÜNEN, ballet short film ‘Behind Perfection’, Robert Lewandowski in CHAMPION Sport and More magazine, FAULT editorial and new entry James NADER with Dita Von Teese for LAMBERTZ

Henrik SORENSEN captured the short film ‘Behind Perfection’ in poetic images, which gives the viewer an insight into the thought of a professional ballerina. The director worked with dancers from the Royal Danish Ballet and points his camera towards a world of beauty, grace and fame, while revealing how this world is idealised at the same time. The glamorous performances on stage are the result of hard work, intense pain, blood, sweat and tears and the constant requirement to be perfect in order to remain a member of the cast.

So, what happens when the curtain falls? Is the passion for dance strong enough to overcome the pain and mental stress? We meet 21-year old dancers Stephanie and Viktoria from the Royal Danish Ballet in the short film and hear how they express their thoughts.

Henrik SORENSEN on his film : ‘I chose to have the dancers work with white powder in some of the scenes of the film while they dance. I am fascinated by the concept of ‘movement’ and ‘form' and I think the powder enhances and underlines the great beauty, the sharpness and expression of each move the dancer makes. The usage of powder also breaks the illusion of it being an actual show in a poetic, beautiful and authentic way.’

Philip SCHNURR painstakingly created a commercial for German party DIE GRÜNEN from ...
