Golden Bugs !

During the weekend „Bugs: Nature’s Little Superheroes“ received a double award by Naturvision Filmfestival: the Young Jury prize and the German Environment & Nature Film prize.
The Jury declared: „This film follows the path from a small animal to a global alternative, consequently it tells us: it’s time to think big. The film describes his experimental arrangements and offers his knowledge in a very strong way. The jury especially liked the work with graphics and animations that make „Bugs – Nature’s Litlle Superheroes“ an entertaining, informative and stimulating piece of science journalism.

Am Wochenende hat „Insekten – Superhelden auf sechs Beinen“ beim Naturvision Filmfestival gleich zwei Preise bekommen: Den Preis der Jugendjury und den Deutschen Umwelt- und Naturfilmpreis“.
In den Begründung der Jury heißt es: „Konsequent geht dieser Film den Weg vom kleinen Tierchen zur globalen Alternative und sagt uns damit auch: Es ist Zeit, groß zu denken. Detailliert und für jeden nachvollziehbar beschreibt der Film seine Versuchsanordnungen und bietet sein Wissen sehr konzentriert an. Der Jury gefiel besonders die Arbeit mit Grafiken und Animationen, die „Insekten – Superhelden auf sechs Beinen“ zu einem unterhaltsamen, informativen und anregenden Stück Wissenschaftsjournalismus machen.“

 

The Youth Jury says: „As a youth council, it’s very important for us to convey the theme of nature and the environment in an entertaining and exciting way to the young generations, so we decided to award a film that does exactly so. This film, which combines the themes of biology and technology, does not even come under the banner of bionics, which fascinated scientists who are looking for solutions to current social problems in the animal world by examining small creatures. We are pleased to announce that the winner of theYoung Jury“ is the film „Bugs – Nature’s Little Superheroes“ („Insekten – Superhelden auf sechs Beinen“ ), which is an important contribution to the development of insects such as ants and silkworms for the fields of logistics and plastic substitutes.

Die Jugend Jury sagt: „Als Jugendbeirat ist es für uns sehr wichtig, das Thema Natur und Umwelt unterhaltsam und spannend an die jungen Generationen zu vermitteln. Wir haben uns deshalb für einen Film entschieden, der genau dies schafft. Wir fanden es beeindruckend, dass in diesem Film, der die Themen Biologie und Technik so eindrücklich verbindet, nicht einmal das Wort Bionik fällt. Uns haben die Wissenschaftler sehr fasziniert, die in der Tierwelt nach Lösungen für aktuelle gesellschaftliche Probleme suchen. Dafür untersuchen sie kleine Lebewesen auf sechs Beinen. Durch den Beitrag, den Insekten wie Ameisen und Seidenraupen für die Bereiche Logistik und Kunststoffersatz leisten können, werden sie selbst zu Superhelden. Deswegen freuen wir uns nun zu verkünden, dass der Sieger des Jugendjurypreises der Film „Insekten – Superhelden auf sechs Beinen“ ist.“

Music score for Bugs: Nature’s Little Superheroes

It’s official: L&L team is delighted to present an incoming project.
The music score for BUGS: NATURE’S LITTLE SUPERHEROES, filmed by Björn Platz and produced by a&o buero film production gmbh.

After being selected as Best Science & Knowledge Project by Sunny Side pitching sessions in 2015, the project is taking shape. a&o buero film production gmbh is one of Germany’s most acclaimed documentary film production companies. Co-owned since 2004 by the International Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker and producer Tristan Chytroschek, their films have received numerous international awards and run regularly at festivals like One World Berlin, the San Francisco Film Fest, FIFA Montreal, to name just a few.

This is a remarkable science documentary. It shows us the importance of knowing the microcosm. Tiny bugs are the actual heros.
While waving your hand trying to kick a flea out of your pasta bowl or making a face spraying ants from your plants, have you considered that one living creature might be amazingly much more ingenious then you?
The specular eye of custom-made cameras closely observe this little world; by using special filming techniques taking us deep inside into the unknown everyday life of bugs.

We are following the quest of three researchers and their individual research object. Their aim it is to learn from the tricks of these little aliens. Studying and analyzing them, we don’t even imagine how many new solutions they „offer“ to our problems.
The movie jumps from one continent to another, from a ladybird drop of blood to a silk moth. Step by step we discover how strong they are, how many materials they can generate to protect their bodies and how these three brilliant men lead researches to solve medicine´s pressing problems as well as our dependency on oil.

By way of conclusion, this documentary is a breathtaking journey; our team is proud to be part of it.

Music Score for The Borderless Sky

Our team is proud to work on a new project.

Produced by Taglicht Media, „The Borderless Sky“ is the upcoming documentary project broadcasted as a 5 part  ARTE documentary series and cinema documentary about the „world’s highest ceiling“. In five adventures stories, photographers travel to Canada, Australia, Scandinavia, Indonesia and Chile. This is the story of their mission: to remind us that we all live together under an infinite roof.  The question is: When was the last time you looked up to feel it?

Five photographers (amongst them: Babak A. Tafreshi, Bernd Pröschold and Yuichi Takasaka featured at The World At Night) use hi-tech cameras to challenge extreme climates and unexplored panoramas. They collect untold pictures and astonishing timelapse footage in order to create a bridge between art, humanity, and science.
After receiving the support of the Creative Europe Programme – MEDIA of the European Union, the project is in post-production and we are currently composing the music and we will take the audio post production in the next couple of months.

We are happy to contribute with music score to this brilliant documentary project which enchants us with its poetic vision of five dreamers and their quest. Their bravery will let the audience participate in an incredible trip of discovery and surprise. It fascinates us with remote landscapes where the sky demonstrates majestic movements.
