Original versus Adapted Screenplay… the topic of my Bachelor Thesis

Featured

I spent most of the 7 months writing my Bachelor Thesis in front of the computer. I just found my Bachelor Thesis on my University’ s Homepage and wanted to give you the opportunity to download it for free. The thesis is on the topic of Adapted versus Original Screenplay. I raise questions like: “what promises to be a financially succesful and critically acclaimed film? A film based on an original screenplay or one based on an Adapted Screenplay?”

As a practical example, I revise the adaptation of the 7th and last Harry Potter Book, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” by J.K. Rowling. I also address the decision of the writer and producers to split the 7th Harry Potter Book into two films.

Image: © Warner Bros.

abstract:

“In this paper I survey the 250 most successful films of all times and find out that the majority of them are not based on an original screenplay, on the contrary: Over 50 per cent of those films are either based on an adapted screenplay or on previously created characters. Sequels, prequels, spin-offs and the like are a sign of Hollywood’s fear to produce films based on a story that is unknown. There are a lot of signs pointing towards the fact that most of the succesful films are based on elements of myths, sagas, fairy tales and archetypes. This seems to be one of the reasons why Fantasy films are so successful.”

I would like to thank my tutors, Dr. Peter Gottschalk and Dr. Ruth Halter.

I wish to give everyone interested in storytelling, writing screenplays and especially fantasy films an opportunity to read my thesis. I spent a lot of time looking through old books about myths, studying Freud and Campbell and Zacharia Sitchin. My interest in the topic of fantasy worlds, especially for film, has grown since I researched my thesis.

All In – The Movie: Cast and Crew

Featured

URB_7482

Sandra Zellweger is playing Anna – Maria Schmid in “All In – The Movie”

This year was started off with a bang – at least for me. We started shooting “All In – The Movie” on January 4th in Regensberg, Switzerland.

The film is a short, produced, directed and written by Oriana Zängerle, with contributing writer Catrina Klee adding vital inspirations to the script. The film features Sandra Zellweger as Anna – Maria Schmid, Lionel Podarski as Marco, Manuel Miglioretto as Stefan, Freigeist van Tazzy as Schiller, Silvio Wey as Antonio, and Manuela Glanzmann as Paula. The secretive Dora is played by Vreni Brun.

I was fortunate to have a very professional and creative team around me: Marco von Allmen sees to capture the perfect shot as our Director of Photography, Katharina Meier and Ferdinand Kirsch are very inventive and creative Production Designers, costumes were overseen by Scarlett Arnet, who was assisted by Gina Zängerle, the film was edited by Claudio Sipka, with original Score composed by Paddy Blätsch. Björn Härtel and Reto Daniel Ziegler are Production Managers. Meret Jehle is 1st Assistant Director.

Please feel free to post your questions in the comments and like the All In – The Movie FB page…more news are coming soon!

“All In” short film in production

Dear followers,

I am pleased to announce I am to direct the short film “All In” (@Miracle Works Films, 2014). Preproduction is well underway and shooting will start in january 2015. The script was written by myself, with some contribution from Catrina Klee. It is the story of three people of different social and financial background, age and sex who have one thing in common: they lose themselves in the seemingly glamorous world of poker. Will they be able to get rid of their addiction before they lose everything?

The temptations of addictive gambling is shown in the short film "All In" (@Miracle Works Films, 2014)

1st Assistant Director and more!

Featured

Dear readers, 2013 is a big year for me! I just completed my first position on a feature film set as a 1st Assistant Director! The film is a swiss production called “20 Regeln für Sylvie” (20 Rules for Sylvie) and the shoot has been great (challenging and crazy at times, of course, but great!). I had a great deal of responsibility, and saw how all the mechanisms on a big movie set work. However, I was never terrified. To me, the joy was the dominating feeling. It is the strongest confirmation in my professional life so far that I have chosen the right profession for myself! Thanks to that amazing team and our crazy crazy CRAZY director Giacun Caduff, who gave me this chance!

The second big thing that just happened is: Photo Botos published a photo of mine on their site! It is one of my favorites, I took it on a spot I love: on the Isola Del Giglio. On it you can see a rock, shaped like a tooth, and behind it the Isola Montechristo (famous from the movie “the count of Monte Christo”). The light was perfect, it was a magic moment. Take a look and read the full story here🙂

Rome – A Fascinating City

Featured

I was in Rome recently and I am amazed at its richness and beauty every time I return. It is also a source of Inspiration – the old monuments, the culture, the stile di vita, caffè and food. When we were visiting, Pope Benedict XVI had already resigned and they were waiting for the Conclave to start. So when we wanted to visit the Sixtine Chapel, we found out it was closed because of the preparations for the Conclave. It was a pity, those frescos by Michelangelo really are extraordinary, I would have liked to see them again. Maybe I’ ll have better luck next time:-)

We were really fascinated by the Pantheon; it is over 2000 years old and exudes great strength and power. The hole in the cupola is also special: it is called the “Window to God”.

A Visit to Paris…Notre Dame HDR

Image

I finally visited Paris again…it was only my second time there. The beautiful river Seine and the little quartiers, like Montmartre and Quartier Latin. Then there are the majestic monuments, many of them with their own park, for example the Louvre with the Jardin des Tuileries…it was magnificent! Speaking of monuments: here is my HDR of the Notre Dame.

I decided to shoot it from a special angle, since the medieval archictecture comes out especially here. The Gothic construction style of that time is especially visible in the pillars outside.

Pilatus HDR

Pilatus HDR, originally uploaded by the real Caffeamore.

A week ago we hiked from Fräckmündegg to the Top of mount Pilatus. The ascent was quite demanding, the steps were up to 30 cm high. On our lunch break we saw some blueberrries, which made a lovely dessert.

Chamois in Mount Pilatus

When we arrived at the Top, we also saw some chamois. It was the first time I ever saw one out in the Wild. I also shot this picture from the top. There were some paragliders starting from the left, their manoevering looked quite scary and dangerous to me. I felt a lot safer where I stood. What about you? Have you ever been in such a place?

Would you rather go down in a Cable Car or in a Paraglider? Please comment below!

RHW Panorama (Switzerland) or: a place close to paradise

Featured

This is a panorama of a place that is very special to me: It shows the place where I grew up. There are many places for the community, for example a soccer field, a basketball field, a Pool room, and rooms for meetings or parties. There is a big garden, where some inhabitants grow their own vegetables, flowers and herbs, and if you cross the street, you’ re at the lake. In summer, during the holidays, it is idyllic. You can stay out on the terrace, have a barbecue, and enjoy your homegrown vegetables on a homemade Pizza. I truly am blessed to have been brought up in this place!

Your wedding nicely photographed by miracle works

Featured

The wedding season has started! This was a very tumultuous setting, the weather didn’ t really play along unfortunately. We were all freezing when I took this picture (most of all the bride and me, which made them laugh, and was therefore a good thing:-)).

But even when the weather isn’ t as nice as you’ d hoped, it’ s still good if there are some nice photos there afterwards to remember the extraordinary, exceptional and emotional ‘most beautiful day of your life’. Our wedding couple was not distracted by the weather, they had a blast. This was the first wedding I photographed, so I plan on improving some things, but I’ m quite happy with the result.

Giglio Campese: spiagga, acqua e il faraglione

Featured

I’ ve declared my love for this place a few times now, and I can’ t wait to go back. There’ s such a feeling of bliss when you swim in the clean, turqoise water in the baia del Campese, or take the surfboard and go out to the farthest rock you see there, which is called the “faraglione”, or the “tooth” by us. You can also go on foot to that spot. From there you can see the Island of Monte Christo, and if the sight is clear, you even see Sardinia.

On a winter’ s day, when the clouds were hanging over the city, we decided to go onto a mountain top to have the sun above and the clouds beneath us.

HDR Gabbiani , originally uploaded by the real Caffeamore.

When I was in Ticino recently I enjoyed the sunny weather immensely and that’ s how I got the idea to express the great atmosphere with an experiment. I know this photo won’ t match everyone’ s taste, but I wanted to try something new and a bit out of the ordinary. May the seagulls flying in the glistening sun make you smile for a moment despite the icy temperatures we have on the northern face of the alps.

Any opinions are welcome, please comment below!

Gabbiano at the shores of Lago di Lugano

Featured

In the winter months the grey misty scenery can be a bit grinding, that’ s why I enjoyed a day in Ticino (the southern, italian-speaking region of Switzerland) so much. There was blue sky and the sun, and it was about 6 degrees warmer than on the northern side of the Alps. This Gabbiano was very happy to be fed some bread by a walker, and so was I because I got to make this picture! Hope you enjoy!

Beautiful view of Pilatus and Lake Lucerne on a cold winter’ s day

A Weekend In Milano

Featured

Milano Centrale, originally uploaded by the real Caffeamore.

This was a beautiful weekend in Milano: altough the weather was not very friendly (just a few degrees above zero and a constant wind), the atmosphere with the christmas decorations, as can be seen below, was great.

And to add to that, there’ s the italian STILE DI VITA, which entails good food, coffee, great architecture and culture (for instance, the TEATRO LA SCALA is one of the most acclaimed in the whole world).

I think the old trams have much more charm than the new ones, and I loved seeing them in action still.

This is the wall and tower of the Castello Sforzesco. Below you see the fountain in front of it.

Finally, here is the famous Duomo of Milan by night (front).

And here’ s the back side of the Duomo. Unfortunately, there’ s a huge Ad poster on one side, I don’ t mean to advertise anything other than the beautiful architecture of the Dome. That’ s why I chose to cut the part with the Ad off. Look at those windows: they’ re breathtaking! What can you recommend in Milan? Do you like the architecture, food, culture or shopping best?

This is the poster of the 2009 Film produced to honour and celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the cooperative I grew up in, the “Genossenschaft Rothus-Wies”. All the parts were played by inhabitants of the cooperative and I was touched by their devotion to the project. The plot could be summed up as a ficitonal crime story in front of a real background, since the cooperative also is the place of action.
