Testshoots and Visitor Records

I´m happy to announce that this website just broke the 100.000 hits barrier!.. next barrier to break is the one million mark but that might take some time. Maybe we go big and give away a TPS t-shirt to the visitor with the 1 millionth hit hehe, who knows.. time will tell.

Together with fellow filmmaker Georgie Uris we filmed the band and a story about broken love on the Canon 550D. We were working from early Saturday night till sunrise on Sunday. In the process we used a lot of toys, some Leica cinema lenses, a underwater housing, a steadycam steeringwheel, flashlights and other things, it was interesting and a lots of fun. There is another project coming up soon, it´s some kind of ad or spot for Amnesty International but honestly I´m not sure enough how or when it´s going to happen yet, more about it when it´s...
