Unterhaching/Germany, 07-MAR-10 — Again, Southern Bavaria has been covered by several Inches of fresh powder snow. Yesterday, a low pressure system called Yve had directed a cold stream of air and snow towards Bavaria causing severe traffic problems. Today, after a snowy night, people enjoy the cool air and the bright sunlight. Where possible, they engage in activities like jogging and cross-country skiing or just taking a walk.

Munich/Germany, 06-MAR-10 — Yve is to blame. The low pressure system with the French name has brought winter chaos and freezing temperatures to big parts of Northern Europe. Today it has reached Munich: in the early afternoon the snowfall was so dense that you could hardly see 100 meters. Traffic was severely affected. The photo shows cars crawling on the Autobahn 8 close to Munich. However, it should be noted that such extreme snow in March is not unusual in Southern Germany. The photographer captured Munich after heavy snowfall almost exactly four years ago.

Premiere Pro CS4 editing suite

Customers, friends, colleagues!

Today is a great day for me.

Some of you have heard the rumours already, but now it’s official: yes, I am happy to confirm the grand new opening of our editing suite in the beautiful village of Unterhaching in Germany, just 20 minutes from Munich town center.

The suite has everything to create exciting videos and movies:

  • Powerful Intel Core i7 920 @ 2.67 GHz
  • 6 GB of RAM
  • Windows Vista 64
  • 1 TB of hard disks built-in
  • eSATA and USB 2.0 connectors for external drives
  • Adobe Premiere Pro CS4, including Adobe Encore
  • Adobe Photoshop CS5
  • Adobe Lightroom 3.3
  • Cooledit 2000 for audio production
  • 2 x 22″ Samsung SyncMaster P2250, FullHD, color managed
  • Sony preview monitor
  • Pioneer amplifier with 2 x JBL professional monitors
  • Epson 4870 slide and photo scanner
  • Microsoft Office suite (Word, Excel, Powerpoint)
  • Enough coffee to satisfy a swat team ;-)

In the camera department, we are still using our reliable and robust Sony HVR-HD 1000E which delivers crisp and well balanced pictures up to Full HD resolution (1920×1080). Add to that the slick Vinten Pro touch 9 tripod, and you will be happy to see that we can produce your film in Munich and Bavaria from start to finish, i.e. from writing the storyboard and filming it to finally editing the piece.

In the unlikely event of our equipment being not sufficient enough, we do have all the backup resources available in Munich, be it freelance camera teams or additional external editing suites. We also do have access to affordable yet skilled actors should your production require these.

If interested in having your film created by us, please inquire directly with me: or call my mobile at +49 163 731 84 08

Big parts of Germany have been entangled in the Carneval activities which actually bring the country to a halt for a few days. Yesterday, the main activities were focused on the cities along the Rhein river: Cologne, Düsseldorf, Mainz. And today will Munich and Bavaria be captured by the disguised folks dancing on the streets.

Have fun!
