You have never seen Germany like this before. I had the privilege to put the images of the journey through thousand of years in limelight. After my study on the film academy in Ludwigsburg the order of the ZDF was comparable with an accolade for me, but also a huge challenge. The German saga is a sexpartite expedition to the soul of the Germans. A journey through the millennia – from the Stone Age and the world of the Germanic to the middle age right to the present. In the meanwhile this season is available on DVD and Blu-Ray. Playtime: 270 minutes.
The sexpartite Documentary Terra X from Gero von Boehm is an epic about virtue, symbols, poet, thinkers and inventors – how they have shaped our country and how we see ourselves. Evolutionary pictorial world from the time of the Neanderthals, warlike scenes from the middle Ages, inventive view of the present: We have amounted together with the Cambridge historian Christopher Clark on a expedition with a VW Beetle Convertible to the soul of the Germans.
Documentation and Entertainment – asked was all in all. Accordingly complex were the requirements of technology. The RED EPIC camera provided me an undisputed attention to detail for the scenes with the Neanderthals, the Grimm brothers, Faust, Schopenhauer or the emperor Wilhelm II. The ULTRA-HD Pictures in 5K is incredibly fine and exactly. On this saga it was demand to a unique approach to the development of a dimension to the theme-adapted imagery. My vision was to sketch pictures with the camera and to create brilliant, lifelike images distances. Because of the length of the production time, the size of the team, the budget and the time journey from the Neanderthals until today, our visionary thinking opened us for the shooting totally new dimensions.
