Halloween Suitwalk Stuttgart

2015-10-31_Stuttgart_Halloween_Fursuit-Walk_2015-10-31_4Stars_P1130951

Same procedure as every year…another Halloween Fursuit Walk in Stuttgart. This time we started earlier, so there was actually some light to make photos before it became too dark. (I strongly dislike “dead” flash photos with the flash not being bounced off any surface and sadly, there is nothing that qualifies for this task along the route of this walk.)

Anatomy of a PawPetShow

During Eurofurence 21 there was no PawPetShow like all the other years.

However there was a 3 hour panel showing how the PawPetShows are made, how they are set up, how a show is performed, what goes into the creation of pawpets, props, backdrop and stage and everything else.

I improvised a recording of the panel with whatever gear I could grab shortly before leaving for EF21.
So it was just me operating 3 cameras (Blackmagic Pocket and an old GH2) at the same time instead of a small crew of volunteers and a well organized and carefully planned selection of collected and borrowed equipment.
Sadly I forgot my audio recorder at home, and could only connect a borrowed microphone to the one camera that has extremely noisy audio circuit (adapter for the GH2 was with the recorder).
Thanks to Draconius for that one. The sound would have been even worse without it.

Enjoy!

Update: one video clip was missing. An im proved version has been uploaded.

2015-10-25 Mad Scientists Party by Zefiro

2015-10-25_Zefiro_Party_2015-10-25_5Stars_P1130918

Had a great party.

Lots of food, good company, lots of fun with lab coats and portal guns,

laser tubes and cool vintage electronics.

Good music too!

I really enjoy these parties Zefiro is throwing. 🙂

No Virtual Reality this time and no crank operated lazorrr.

 

I made some 2D photos on Picasa/Google+

Cologne Furdance 2015

I was in cologne anyway, so I had no choice but to DO attent the Cologne Furdance 2015.

It’s the fist year we had the Maritim Hotel instead of the smaller Zeugheus.

It was a blast! Talking to old friends, having good food, doing a bit of dancing, some running around in fursuit and a lot of photos.

I made some

  • 2D photos on Picasa/Google+ (2048×1152) / sadly not on Furcon (full resolution) yet.

 

ZCon 2015

As always…most relaxing “con” of the year. 🙂

Fire, dry ice, playing simulated space ships and lots of relaxing.

I made some

Christopher Street Day parade in Cologne

I was there, I was on the parade, I made some photos.

Luckily I was late and didn’t bring my outfit (because I thought the parade was already over after being 2 hours late).

Luckily because the heat was unbearable even shirtless. In lycra I probably wouldn’t have survived.

PawPetShow in Kölner Kino gezeigt

Tirmagon hat in Köln das kleines Kino “Filmpalette” gemietet und dort die 5te PawPetShow von Eurofurence 10 gezeigt.

Die Gruppe war recht klein und sowohl die Show selbst als auch die gezeigte Video-Qualität vor 10 Jahren hatte natürlich nicht annähernd den enormen, heutigen Standard.
Auf jeden Fall war es aber eine super lustige Story und das Kino mit dem kleinen Essen hinterher ein sehr angenehmes Furmeet.

Ich habe ein sehr kurzes Video zusammengeschnitten, als Erinnerung an dieses ungewöhnliche Ereigniss.

PS: Das Script der Show wurde von Eisfuchs veröffentlicht und ist hier zu finden.

Had a great Party at Zefiro’s place.

Eurofurence 19 Paw Pet Show “End Tide” finished!

 

6 month of preparation

5 Camera furs

3 month of editing

it is finally done!

Thanks a lot to my helpers:
Arctic Steve
Digitalc
Draconius
Ragear!
Also thanks to Cheetah for the intermissions ans BBF for the opening sequence!

Our unofficial PawPetShow video for 2013. This is the first time I worked in a team like this and of cause we did have miscommunication about framing, misunderstandings leading to a missing backup camera, technical difficulties due to simple inexperience with borrowed equipment in addition to the usual issues.

But all of us learned a lot and we’ll be better next year! (I for once learned how much work rotoscoping is. I still have nightmares about frame by frame editing.)

See here for the thread in Eurofurence Forum!

 

Freiburg Suitwalk

I made a short video of the tiny fursuit-walk we had in Freiburg last weekend. Wanted to test the new camera and the mini-steadycam anyway.
