This is my first realized project. My interests in medieval re-enactments, sword fighting and also my passion for making short movies, started with this clip.
The choreography of the sword fight I created with the actors in a team work. At the beginning it was a promotion performance for a re-enactment group in the southern of Bavaria, which I joined in 2005 and left in 2008.
The containing music tune is taken from a track of „ampathie“ called “Aus Einsamkeit”. The dark atmosphere of the first minute is the main reason I decided for this song. On a winters day I shot this film in a wood near Traunstein. I did no post color adaptation. There were just the natural lights.
But everyone can see, that the editing isn't the very best. Well, I had time to learn since “Zweikampf”…
