In sum, this short instalment of KinoDynamique did not contain any special events for me, other than seeing a lot of old acquaintances as well as the usual exhausting work.
One project that I was planned for had to change plans, so the beginning was essentially about waiting until the one big project I was assigned to started. This one then brought us to a shooting in a park during rain on day 2, although I managed to stay under an umbrella for the most part during the rain. (In the final film, hardly any of my audio recordings from that were used...)
In the night, while walking to our final set, we came a cross an old woman that seemed lost. She asked for directions and through the following exchange we found out she lost her handbag with all her belongings. We called the police to help her out and a few minutes later, a patrol car arrived and they took her with them.
Our final set that night was in a hallway of a housing block. It took some time for the directors and actors to rehearse the sequence. When we finally got to record the whole thing, after the second take at 2am, sure enough a security guard asked us to leave. We then moved to a public place, rehearsed again and then recorded it. I got home under the singing of the morning birds.
Day 3 was quite uneventful as well, with only one quickie recording for me. At least this quickie got good laughs at the screening. The screening itself was quite nice as well, with about 12 films. The film I worked on nearly didn't make it in time, but worked out fine. I didn't stay long at the party afterwards.
I went into the one-session-only kabaret with neutral expectations - and to some extent, I'm still neutral about it after it's done. One the one hand for example, projects had to be finished in time - there was no next session to delay to, which happened all the time in the longer kabarets. On the other hand, there is not too much interaction with other people than the ones on your project. The kinolab, the base for the kabaret, was mostly empty.
What made the most fun was actually the quickie, a work of roughly 2-3 hours. I guess the key would be to focus only on quickies in such formats. Otherwise it simply feels like any other student project, crammed into a weekend with staying awake late into the nights. That's something to consider for the next one that they are planning.
