I am very very happy about having been honored with a price at the lovely La.Meko Film Festival last Saturday in Germany together with other wonderful films. I am deeply thankful for that. We also had the chance to perform a couple of EWIAN songs.
The video and song is called ‘Into the Unknown’ and tells the story of a young boy who tries to find an ancient relict in an imagined world in the hope that he can use it to resolve a serious conflict between his mother and father.
I´d like to thank the persons who helped me to realize my music video for the song ‘Into the Unknown’: Nataly Zibert, Kaja Lori und her son Piet, Thorben Kraus, Markus Müller.
The video will also be available on my youtube channel youtube.de/Ewianmusic, but it will take a while for reasons I can´t explain at the moment.
I am pleased to announce that one of my next music videos will be shown at International Short Film Festival LaMeko in Landau, Germany on 9th May 17.
Furthermore, EWIAN will perform a couple of songs at the prize giving ceremony on 13th May 17.
Here some stills of my film:
I always wanted to make a video with flowers – and a calm, tender version of my song ‘Beautiful Lie” seemed to work pretty well for that. For that reason, I made tracking shots in bed of flowers in my home town. There is a light floating through it, the main element, its meaning not yet to be revealed, but soon.
So here is my new video for ‘Beautiful Lie – The Salvation‘:
I was on the road again to continue with my music video shootings. This time I had to go slumming as the protagonist in this story is located in public places where he is talking to persons who are physically not present, but in his mind.
This was a challenge for me – my goal was to catch glimpses from strangers while I was talking to someone invisible.
I was in Frankfurt again to make further video shootings for a new song called ‘VAST’.
I used new equipment to gain a better depth of focus and also worked the first time with 3d sound recordings (Thanks to Stefan Pätz for the special microphones and supervision).´
I founded EWIAN on 6th March 2013 by the release of the debut EP ‘We Will Never Grow Old’. Thus a few days ago this project had it´s third ‘birthday’. Since then I produced 26 songs and 8 videos overall. Maybe it´s arrogant to make a throwback by now as EWIAN is still young, but I just feel like doing that. In the next few weeks I will make a post on Twitter nearly everyday and sometimes here on WordPress with unpublished photos and information.
Before I start, I will go far afield to a time before EWIAN.
My first real band was care[le]ss (south germany). The guy on the left side is Maximilian (our ex-drummer), now member of the great Get Well Soon:
Here some more pictures of the time with care[le]ss:
Member of care[le]ss was also Benjamin Lachance. He contributed to the first EWIAN releases (‘We Will Never Grow Old’, ‘Good Old Underground’). On the last photo you can see him blurred in the background.
Here it is, probably our last video for ‘We Need Monsters’, for a song called ‘Love’.
It´s about an indian seamstress who is daydreaming during her work as a kind of cognitive survival strategy.
It took us one year of production to film the different seasons.
What I intended to express with this song is that imagination can save our life. Like it saved the life of this indian girl.
