Drink all Day
Binder & Krieglsteins music is a kind of mash up, a bastard that developed out of several influences like balkan music, folk music and pop, just to name a few. They love to play with stereotypes, especially with those that point at the folk music from their home country.
We wanted to have a story that starts with nice images of high mountain meadows idyll, like we know from folk music videos. But the whole thing should end up completely different, hence it carries the nature of bastards like the music does. In collaboration with writer Christof Huemer we developed a plot that develops similar to those of disaster movies. Several groups of people get introduced while they enter a harmless scenery, not aware of the catastrophe that approaches inevitably.
One of the benefits of working in a small town like Graz is that you find a lot of people who are really enthusiastic about projects like that, and who are willing to sacrifice their spare time. So we had a big production team put together in no time. A lot of people supported us and the whole production wouldn't have been possible without them.
We set up a temporary blue box studio in a huge loft. All but the car shots were done there over seven days. Organizing the production times was tricky because most of the (amateur) actors were busy with their day jobs. The team was really ambitious and worked together very well, so we managed to make the shots we needed in time.
Compared to the production, post production was a piece of cake. Although there was still a load of work to do. We set together the three dimensional environment under heavy employment of photos we took at the Freilichtmuseum Stübing and at the hills of southern Styria. The compositing of filmed material with the 3D scenes was easier than we thought, because we really managed to establish good real life like light situations in the blue box studio.
