The proven idea of happiness [full soundtrack and film videos]

YouTube is, as usual, an incredible source of talented musicians and actors! 🔍😍

I was looking for beautiful film soundtracks and I came across this amazing film called ‘ideas of happiness’.

#film #filmproduction #soundtrackZachary Nelson

First, let me tell you a little bit about the film soundtrack. The selected soundtrack playlist comes from a Berlin-based band called ‘Fewjar’ playing in multiple genres such as Electro, 80s, Rock, Progressive, Psychedelic, Crossover, Triphop. You can follow them on their various social networks by checking the links in their Youtube description below their videos. Now, sit back, relax, be patient and wait a minute for the first song to kick off fully! Don’t fall asleep, though! 😪🌟

What do you think about their music? If you liked it, download their songs from Itunes, Amazon or Bandcamp! 👍😉

Now, as you may have guessed, the film is also in German. But don’t worry because it is subtitled in English. Feeling relieved?😌 It’s a very well done psychological thriller. Although it’s my film genre, I truly enjoyed it and hope you will, too!

If you liked it, support the film project: https://www.patreon.com/Zeo

You can give as little as $1 per month so you won’t be too much out of pocket!💰

‘Digga Is a dancer’ HipHop/Rap freestyle singing battles in Hamburg (Germany)

Here is an event I attended at Molotow bar, Nobistor 14 – Reeperbahn, Hamburg on 31st July 2015. I didn’t really know too much what to expect and ended up watching German hip hop freestyle singing battles. I have filmed two of them (one solo and a duet), that felt were the most interesting ones and had the best singing flows. Both are on different beats and styles, so you may like one more than the other depending on your taste!

You can find this event organisation on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/diggaisadancer

Please find in the below slideshow the line-up for the event and a picture for the duet I filmed.

I hope you will enjoy watching these two videos, now!

Duckstein Festival Hamburg Hafen City 2015

The summer has been filled so far with lots of open air festivals in Hamburg (Germany), even if the weather hasn’t always been perfect! I attended the duckstein festival at Madgeburg Harbour (in front of and next to the International Maritime Museum). As you may have already guessed, Duckstein, the main festival sponsor, is a brewery selling beers such as the Bavarian classic Hefeweiss, a Pilsner, Dunkel and Altbier.

The festival, due to its sponsor, was more adult-oriented (shows during the week took place only in the evenings) as you would probably be figuring out when visiting the festival website requesting if you are over 16 years of age (minimum age to drink beers in Germany) but some of the shows were also open to families, in particular the circus shows. Please find below few pictures of the festival (slideshow).

I watched the wonderful and witty Big Daddy Wilson acoustic blues band with soul and gospel influences from Southern United States, which discovers his love for blues coming to Germany, where he has been awarded ‘Best Acoustic Artist’ in the Blues category in Germany. Later on, I had a good laugh watching the funny and interactive acrobatic Santos Circus street show coming all the way from Venezuela.

Enjoy the videos and for more information about the festival itself running in different cities of Germany this summer, check their website here: www.duckstein-festival.de

Black party meets MS KOI biggest hip hop and dancehall boat party (Germany)

As I guess some of you may never have been to Hamburg (Germany), I would like to tell you briefly few facts about this beautiful town. Hamburg is a city located at the river Elbe and has a very dynamic harbour. Its harbour is named Germany’s “Gateway to the World” and is the largest port in Germany. The port of Hamburg is the second-busiest port in Europe (after the port of Rotterdam) and 15th-largest worldwide. In 2014, 9.73 million TEUs (20-foot standard container equivalents) were handled in Hamburg.

Hamburg port isn’t only a shipping trading center but also offers many boat trips, museums tracing the history of the harbour in the ‘Speicherstadt’ (recognised as a World Heritage by UNESCO), old boats can be visited and lots of party are organised on these boats. I have been to one boat party, that lasted 4 hours between the boat leaving the harbour and coming back to it.

I would like to share with you pictures, audio and videos taken at the event on 18th July 2015. I hope you’ll enjoy this as much as I did! If you have issues playing some of the videos due to potential country restrictions, use this link https://www.proxfree.com/ and type next to the lock picture the direct link to the youtube video, change country (to Amsterdam, Netherlands) in the ‘server location’ field and hit ‘prox free’ button!

‘Trash’ award-winning UK, Brazilian and German co-produced film

 

images

This film is an up-lifting, and energetic drama based on the novel by Andy Mulligan, at 80 % in Brazilian Portuguese and 20% in English with both Brasilian and American actors. If you do not live in an English-speaking country, you may be able to view it dubbed in your language. I have personally watched it in German instead of English in a very sweet arts and essays cinema in Bernstoffstrasse, Hamburg (website: http://www.studio-kino.de/). I was late for the film but the staff opened one screening room just for me!

The film has won or been nominated for 5 awards:
