Thinking Eva

Sometimes I get ideas and usually they range from moderately crazy to impossible from the get-go. When you have an idea like that, no matter which kind, because it comes to you while riding your bike or desperately trying to sleep, you need to do everything in your might to make it possible. So when I rewrite a song for my best friend and know I have no time to learn it, record it and film a video to accompany it, I have to do it anyway. And so I did.

We have been friends for eight years and don’t talk all the time, but it’s good when we do. I guess I don’t need to say much, because it’s all there in the video. So instead of gushing about Eva more, I want to thank the three guys who helped me make it in time. For the music I have to thank Max, my guitar teacher, who taught me how to play the song and then took the time to play it for the recording. Then there is Florian. Another one of those friends I see way too rarely and who tackled my camera despite feeling like he wasn’t qualified to. I think he did great, by the way! Then there’s Jonas who arrived late and still helped speed the process up by filming when Florian was getting his hands dirty and colorful. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

As I said, I have all these ideas and most of them cannot be realized because they are too big to take on by myself. When it really counts though, there are these people who stand by me and put time and energy into a project that isn’t theirs. That’s pretty amazing, in my eyes. To go out of your way for a person you might not even know just to help a person you know.

Retrospectively I hope they had as much fun as I did. Everything is fun actually when you do it with Florian, so that was definitely a win, too. Today I had even more fun, looking at the few photographs we took and then extracting stills from our footage. Now I wish we had photographed the whole process, because I really love the bloopers we captured by leaving the camera on.

Communicating “on set” looks a lot less attractive than it feels.

I have so many more video ideas in my head, so if you are reading this and are interested in helping film a video that might or might not be a lot more complicated than this one, just let me know! I will probably conduct a little dance in celebration and get planning right away.

I am grateful for my amazing friends and especially for you, Eva. Schnapsideen für immer! If you have one, I’ll be there and help you with it.

Happy Birthday.

    tweeting this to my followers! Fantastic blog and amazing design and style.

  3. Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?

  4. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon everyday.
    It will always be useful to read through content from other writers and use a little something from their web sites.

  5. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your website.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?
    A number of my blog readers have complained about my site not working correctly
    in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?

  6. Why users still make use of to read news papers when in this technological world all is accessible on web?

  7. Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to produce a
    great article… but what can I say… I put things
    off a whole lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.

  8. Ahaa, its nice conversation concerning this post here at this weblog,
    I have read all that, so at this time me also commenting at this place.

  9. This is the right blog for anybody who hopes to understand this topic.
    You know so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that
    I really will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a topic which has been discussed for decades.

    Great stuff, just excellent!

    I’ve been surfing online more than three hours these days, yet I by no means found any interesting article like
    yours. It is lovely value sufficient for me.
    In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did,
    the internet will be much more helpful than ever before.

  11. Great blog here! Also your web site loads up fast! What host
    are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host?
    I wish my web site loaded up as fast as yours lol

  12. I could not refrain from commenting. Exceptionally well written!

  13. Thanks designed for sharing such a pleasant
    opinion, article is good, thats why i have read it entirely

  14. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured
    I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post
    or vice-versa? My site discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!
