Award Speech from Colombia
On march 31st 2012 I won the Jury Prize of the German Webvideo Awards ( Deutscher Webvideopreis ) in the category OMG for my protest video from India:
THE BOLLYWOOD MOVIE STAR
Since I am still on the road I couldn’t attend at the award show. So I decided to perform a small speech in the center of Medellín, Colombia…
With help from the people I work with right now I took the chance to visit the not-so-safe center of Medellín to find some real local musicians. With 1 liter of Rum and 1 Liter of Aguardiente we convinced a music group and some other people to take part in our project. After several obscene maledictions by a female group of coffee sellers against the Gringo with the camera, the mood became a little bit aggressive. But as always…the Rum solved the problem and after 5 takes we finally thought we got what we need.
Big thanks to:
Cristina and Clara from Vida Augusta
Edgar from Ragde Design
Lucas from brainwash24hours
Rob from Brik a Brak
as well as Samuel lo mejor, the Ladies, the band and all the people shouting.
Thank you so much
