'Here comes agency no.3: antoni_boost is the latest addition to the antoni agency family.

BEN & MARTIN aka BAM present you their film project "XT" on GoSee, a mix of road trip & love story in the surreal wilderness of the Cederberg Mountains

Photographer duo BAM, aka Ben and Martin, presents its new movie project "XT" on GoSee. Together with DOP Tristan Siefert, the duo and their team took it to the Cederberg Mountains of South Africa. The nature reserve stretches from the Middelberg Pass at Citrusdal up to the north of the Pakhuis Pass at Clanwilliam with an area of approximately 71,000 hectares. The mountains, famous for their colorful springtime flower carpets, are also known for their sometimes bizarre rock formations such as the Maltese Cross. The nature reserve has been on UNESCO's World Heritage List since 2004 as part of the Cape Floral Region.

The big challenge in particular – according to BAM – were transport and the timing of the whole team not to mention the bike for the shoot, which took place in extremely remote locations. For the desired look & feel, they filmed and photographed only in the early morning and evening hours.

Besides the photo spread with numerous motifs already presented on GoSee, the Cologne-based photo team now presents a dark and atmospheric mix of road trip & love story with the film "XT" which they directed together amidst the surreal wilderness of the Cederberg Mountains in South Africa. Project "XT" is not only a premiere on GoSee but also an announcement: After the photographer duo has successfully realized worldwide campaigns for its clients in the area of photography for quite some time, they can now also be booked for moving images.
