SonyEricsson Mobile Sessions

Went to the Ed Moses bar in Munich the other day to hear german actor Ralf Richter read excerpts of stories from people around Germany that wrote about their cities. I came to the conclusion that it's really trendy to love Berlin. And everybody that doesn't live there or Munich wrote about being bummed. Cool thing was that there were video beamers setup that projected the texts on the audience which looked kinda fancy.

Anyways, I'm on my way to Berlin with Vince right now for the second premiere of LGGL and a weekend of hangin with some friends.

New Design Directions

Wow. Long time no blog. I´m so lazy. Come to think of it, writing a blog only takes 10 minutes of my day. That´s ten minutes I could be NOT wasting my life on Facebook. I´ll try to post some more stuff from now on.

I´ve been doing some flyer designing for a bunch of events and it´s a breath of fresh air to me. It´s great not doing the same stuff I´ve been doing all season. I get to experiment around.
Just today I got the job to do the flyer for a Mike Väth gig. You know, techno producer Sven Väth´s brother. I was pretty stoked on that since he´s kind of a big deal.

The first draft of the Mike Väth flyer. The booking agency wants his name bigger and a picture of him, which I´m not so stoked on but whatever.

This is the final version.

I also did a flyer for a screening of "Let´s Go Get Lost" at the T-Mobile concept store "4010" in Berlin.

They liked the flyer so much that I got another job designing one for an art exhibition in Berlin.
Me likey.
Happy bloggin, nerds!

New IsenSeven clip "Times" online

"Times" is a self-contained short-clip by Isenseven and at the same time the last part of the upcoming full-length movie "Let's Go Get Lost". As this clip will be edited slightly different in the final movie, we decided to publish this original version online already now.

This clip contains a collection of footage we gathered throughout the season and during the summer days in our hometown Munich as well as in Berlin, New York, Tokyo, Bejing, Portland, Barcelona and many other places.
We like to thank all of our close friends for a great year 2009 and especially thank those guys for riding their skateboards for us: Conny Mirbach, Christopher Geyer, Jonas Rosenbauer, Michael Von Finten, Christoph Friedmann, Dennis GlÀser, Timo Kavermann, Mack McKelton, Gunes Ozdogan, Marcus Sweeney, Philipp Schuster and John Zelehoski.

Filmed by: Felix Urbauer, Alex Schiller, Vincent Urban, Niko Jentsch, Magnus Törnkvist
Edited by: Vincent Urban

The editing dungeon

Hello friends! Long time no blog. Howzee needs to keep reminding me to update my blog.
Things have been quite stressful lately with the move to the new apartment and working on the new movie. We´ve been pulling all nighters, filming intro´s and eating unhealthy food this summer during the editing every year.
Here a little insight of what I do all day in the dark but air conditioned office.

My editing workplace.

The little notes that help me not forget what I´m working on.

The workmachines in our office.

Me, Vincent and Felix....handsome like always.

I´ll be back soon with some pics of the new apartment.

New home!

After searching intensely for over 7 months, Lena and I finally found our dream apartment in the beautiful Glockenbachviertel in Munich. We´ll be moving in in two weeks, so we´ll post some more pics then. Thanks to everyone that helped us out finding something over the last half year.

Dear lord.....

....Vincent got a violin today!
More noise in our apartment is just what we needed. But it will definitely make our songs for the upcoming video.....well, interesting. Since I´ve been playing so much piano lately, he felt the urge to also get himself a classy instrument. Maybe I´ll start playing the tuba next.

Music time...

Finally Vincent and I are reunited after his long stay in Portland. I was getting pretty bored, not being able to play music with my buddy. But now he´s back and we´ve been experimenting.
Our friend Stefan gave us this awesome box thingy that lets you hook up midi instruments, mics, even guitars to your Macbook. So now we are rocking it on Garageband. I hooked up my electric guitar and my keyboard and Vince is actually singing.
You are definitely going to hear a few of our songs in the new IsenSeven video.....if we ever get to editing it since we´ve only been playing music all day.

Vince and me in our "studio" aka living room.

Me, dreaming about some kind of food probably.

Thanks Lena for taking these pictures. And thanks Howzee for reminding me to update my blög. Turd.

A day in Vancouver

Since camp is closed in Whistler on saturdays and everybody is so wasted from the friday night party we decided to take a stroll in to Vancouver for the day. All we did was shop and eat. Awesome!

Sushi Village - Whistler

Tonight we finally did what we actually came to Whistler for. Sushi Village. The best sushi I have ever tasted and if you ever have the pleasure to visit Whistler, you need to go there.
We all had some yummy raw fish, frozen strawberry margheritas, big expensive beers and a good time. Life can be pretty sweet when you´re hanging in Whistler and have nothing to do cause it´s been raining 24/7....explore the realms of yummieness.

Transformers - Revenge Of The Fallen is the best movie the universe. And I need to let everybody know how stoked I am on it.

After waiting a painful and long two years I finally got to indulge the fantastic super film experience that is Transformers - Revenge Of The Fallen.
I can´t even explain how awesome this movie is. The first part was out of this world and the sequel blew my socks off even harder. I know, I´s a dumb Micheal Bay blockbuster, it´s totally overdone and unrealistic, the plot is terrible, the acting sucks bla bla bla....But don´t watch a Micheal Bay movie because you want to see some deep and thoughtful filmmaking paired with class actors. You watch it cause you know alot of stuff will be blowing up, there will be crazy highspeed pursuits/battles between the coolest vehicles and mostly there will be one or two stunningly hot chicks (Scarlett Johansson in The Island) included.
Explosions, cool cars, military super jets, giant robots from outerspace battling each other and Megan Fox....I mean really, if you are a guy and don´t think this is a remotely fun movie you need to grow a pair of testies.
I´m gonna go watch the movie one more time here in Whistler with Peter. Then when I get back home I´ll watch it in the IMAX at least once and when the DVD comes out I will lock myself in my room for a week watching it. I´m such a nerd and I love it.

If you really aren´t into exploding alien fighter robots that battle on top of skyscrapers while aircraft carriers launch laser missiles on to pyramids, maybe this will change your mind:

Whistler update 1

Once again I´m in Whistler, Canada at the Camp Of Champions snowboard camp. I´m here with Niko the new IsenSeven filmer, Fischi from Pleasure Mag and the riders Peter, Alex, Christophe and Ludde. I drove up from Portland after visiting Vincent for a few days which took roughly 7 hours. Quite the boring drive, but my super mixtape cd´s made the drive easier.
Vincent is doing great in Portland. I think he found a new home there. The city ist just amazing and the people you meet there are even amazinger. Two days was way too little though for hanging out there. Vincent and I got matching tattoos one night to remind us of the trip and the whole move to Portland. I´ll be posting a picture of that soon.
Whistler has been good so far. Great crew, great house, great snowboarding, great town. The weather has been poopy but it´ll get better. I´ve only been on the mountain one day so far....but that leaves more time for other activities like minigolf, eating, skating and partying.
Me, sporting my tight pants in whistler. Super!

I´m such a tourist. Whistler.

Welcome to my blög.

Hey friends. This is my blog. I once told myself I´d never make one, but now I have fallen for the internets way of letting me tell you how super interesting everything I do is. I got tired of facebooking everything that happened to me, my thoughts and other random stuff that goes on in my life, so now I have one more thing that keeps my productivity at an all time low.
This is also for you, Mom and Dad....since I never call or come home anymore. To let you know what your vagabond son is up to.
Have fun with this shenanigan of mine. I will have something interesting to say pretty son.
