This week, I completed a 3-minute imagefilm for one of Germany's leading producers of commercials, Trigger Happy. The film portrays a well-known Berlin advertising agency that is set to receive the renowned Horizon prize. It's my second foray into the world of advertising. The first, a Siemens commercial which I texted in 2004, won a Cine Golden Eagle.

The renowned Warsaw summer film festival showcased eight of my films in the young filmmaker's section. The films were shown in a cinema right in the center of town. I spent a happy three days talking to audiences, watching films and generally enjoying the city.
From October onwards, I will be editing my film about the disappearance of Roald Amundsen, the man who beat Scott to the South Pole. One of the features of the upcoming film will be an expedition to the Barents Sea. This was a collaboration between the Norwegian navy, the coast guard, the aviation museum in Bodo, the engineering company Kongsberg and German indie Context TV. Two ships were used in the operation of which one was lost due to a fire and had to steam back to port.
