All In – The Movie: Cast and Crew

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.

“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?

It is a short film aiming to show the less glamorous side of gambling addiction. The genre is drama with some light and humorous passages. It will be shot in german. Running time will be about 25 minutes.

1st Assistant Director and more!

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

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 beautiful day for a photo shoot…book your own now!

Today my friend Nessi had booked a photo shoot; she needed some pictures for her cv. That was only the beginning. After we had finished with the “duty” part, we moved on to the sponta- neous and fun part…and the weather was perfect for it. She enjoyed the Snow, which is visible on the photos below:

Happy 2013! Taking off to new heights…

Dear visitors,

Thank you so much for your visits, comments, sharing and likes on Miracleworks this past year! It has been a great year with a lot going on. I truly appreciate all your input and support and hope you’ ll be back on this blog in 2013.

All the best, lots of success, good ideas, and a happy and creative 2013 to you all! I can’ t wait to see you back here in the new year, there will be some announcements!

As a symbol for the past year, in which I finished my Bachelor of Arts in Directing, I chose one of my favourite animals: the gabbiano. It looks so graceful as it lands on this rock…sometimes it would be really nice to be able to fly…

Cheers to all the positive, creative people out there! See you soon!

A late summer day’ s wedding…

In late August, I was invited to a friend’ s wedding. It took place at a beautiful old mill, with a river flowing next to it, of course. The weather was perfect, and so was the party. There was spanish food and cuban music. Here are some pictures:

A Visit to Paris…Notre Dame HDR

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.

What do you think of the picture? Have you ever been to Paris? Which is your favourite spot? Please comment below. If you liked the post, subscribe to my blog and/or click “Like”. Thanks!

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!

Your wedding nicely photographed by miracle works

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.

If you’ re interested in having your wedding, birthday party, or another event photographed or filmed, or you’ d just like some beautiful photos of yourself, or want to surprise someone with such a gift, contact me at oriana.zngerle@yahoo.de
