JEDEN SOMMER IM JULI/EVERY SUMMER, IN JULY is a diary-like stream of consciousness about working behind the scenes of the Tour de France, entirely shot on Super8 film. In the past I used to work for the german TV network ZDF at the Tour de France and I collected some of my impressions with an old camera. More recently I started to edit a real short documentary out of that, exploring with all senses what it feels like to be part of this well-oiled machinery.

TOUT LE MONDE ATTEND LE MAILLOT JAUNE (Everyone is waiting for the yellow jersey) is a documentary project about the spectators of the Tour de France in the countryside. The Tour de France has always been a celebration of the magnificience of its very beautiful rural areas. Against the background of the increasing urban-rural divide the look into a world, that metropolitans have difficulties to imagine and find very desirable at the same time, is exciting in many respects. -> Project website

ONE MOMENT IN TIME is the observation of a high dive. We see a professional diver in montage parallel with children at the age of six to ten years, who are about to learn high-diving.
