Tea by the Lake
Drinking tea at the lakeside of the Green Lake early in the morning you could find yourself suddenly in a dreamlike and surreal world in which unexpected encounters may happen. ‘Tea by the Lake’ was filmed at the Green Lake in Austria from 8 to 11 July 2014. Shot on a Panasonic GH2 with the incredible 25mm/f0,95 Voigtländer Nokton and a GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition hanging on a DJI Phantom 2. We are happy that this short film was screened at several film festivals and even won some awards.
"The legend about the green ghost inspired us to do this short film which we shot during three days at the lake. Especially the golden hour in the mornings is a very meditative time. Maybe some heavy duty camping guys from eastern Europe might be there sleeping behind their van. But other than that there was nobody there. Flo sank the drone during the last shot above the water. It was in the water for two minutes until I dove down to pick it up. Believe it or not … after disassembling it completely, a few hours in the sun and a few minor replacements, the drone is still flying as our back-up drone." - Micha
