The Attic

Thursday, 27 August 2009

During the photoshoot with Akbar Simonse we did an improvisation in the attic of the building with photographer Marco Habanero.
Here Akbar walks the stairs as a King, transforms into a Pierrot and poses.
Music and text will be added in a later stadium.

Photographer Marco Habanero writes on his Flickrpage:

Last weekend the main event was a photoshoot for MediaMe.
Bert Kommerij and Ronnie Griens came over to record and support a photoshoot of “the Pictureman” our very own Akbar.
The results will be posted here on Flickr and all over the internet ;) will keep you all updated!

Photoshoot

Sunday, 23 August 2009

Akbar Simonse, Ronnie Griens and Marco Habanero during the Media Me photoshoot in Leiden.
It went very well. Akbar was king, pierrot, angel, astronaut, superman, a yogi, an 18-th century old man, an early Holbein, a Da Vinci homo universalis and finally, almost nude, like a Dove commercial.
Branding. Identity. Privacy. Entertainment. Drama.
Props: laptops, wires, mirrors, camera’s, globes, headphones and iPhones.
All material has to be selected and edited now. Soon online.
(We’re considering a Media Me Pictureman calender.)

Next week we try to plan a shoot at the Medialab in Breda.
Pictureman in a CAVE.
With Hans Bouwknegt.
update: Friday: Breda.

After that, a new phase in the project will start.
A script has to be written, based on the clips.
Deadline for mediafonds: november 2009.

To be continued…

Kings and Queens

Friday, 21 August 2009

For tomorrow we rented several costumes, which will help to symbolise the nine themes of Media Me.
Akbar is our model.
Like a doll, we’ll dress him with care. He will be Superman, an astronaut, King, etc.

It will be a game with identities aswell. A portrait experiment: theatre, icons.
The shoot will take place in Leiden. Ronnie Griens will film the whole proces.
Maybe we can improvise some mise-en-scènes as well.

The Kings Robe symbolises the status of every user of the web: “We’re all kings and queens here.”
Marco Habanero will use several camera’s and techniques.
I do the catering.

Looking for the right King Robe

Friday, 21 August 2009

Looking for the right King Robe for the photoshoot next Saturday with Akbar Simonse as Pictureman.
Goal is to collect images based and inspired on the nine themes of Media Me. Interpretations. Theatrical.
Playing with symbols and metaphores.
Marco Habanero: Photography. (We had a great day! Thank you.)
Comtumes: plenty. Props, light and atmosphere optimal.
To be continued.
(Also found a crown…)
