The little things...

It's the little things that make me happy.

Like walking through London in spring and autumn.
Like walking through Prague in the spring.
Like walking through Berlin in the winter.
Like walking through my favorite little artist village at the Northern Sea in the summer.

Like watching the sun rise in the morning.
Like watching the sun set in the evening.
Like watching the moon and the starts on a clear night.

Like drinking coffee in the sunshine.
Like drinking tea while watching the rain pour down on the window.

It's the little things that make me smile.

Like hanging out in the tiniest pub in England with friends from Germany.
Like hanging out in the oldest pub in England with friends from the UK.

Like sitting in the office and someone plays my favorite song.
Like sitting in the office and someone makes a stupid joke.

Like waking up in the morning and hearing church bells ring, reminding me of my childhood home.
Like waking up in the morning and realizing that I've had the fun…


Home is where the heart is. Home is where the Wi-Fi connects itself. Home is where Siri still thinks I live.
I’ve been away from home now for 6 months. I’ve never been away from home for more than 6 months.
Over Christmas I spent some days at my dad’s house, and I thought what the heck am I doing moving so far away that I have to get on a plane every time I want to come home? Over Christmas I spent some days at my old flat, and I thought what the heck am I doing leaving friends, family and my cat behind?
Coming back to the UK after Christmas strangely felt like a relief. All the worries slowly faded away, and I got reminded of why I chose to move away. Why I chose to leave my comfort zone, why I chose to leave everything behind. Why I chose to move to a new country with only two suitcases.
I love the city I grew up in, and I won’t say that I’m never moving back. But for the past two years I felt like I needed to get out of there. I felt like if I don’t leave now, I might never leave. I felt like …

Christmas Traditions

Dressed in comfy socks and pajamas, sitting opposite the Christmas tree, enjoying the warmth of a log fire, drinking hot chocolate or mulled wine, eating too much chocolate, and listening to Christmas carols. If someone would ask me, this is my perfect Christmas eve. Surrounded by people I love, doing nothing and just enjoying the fact that we're all together for once.

For the last four year, me and my roommate bought a Christmas tree together, which we then carried on our shoulders from the shop to our home, to the amusement of everyone who saw us. I mean, two little people carrying a 2m tree is quite funny, there's no point denying that. And I actually enjoyed putting smiles on people's faces, after all this is what Christmas should be all about.

This year I have absolutely zero Christmas decoration in my house, which is a first. But there is no point in buying some as I will be going home a week before Christmas. So I must make do with my awesome advent calendar (don…

Assistant Directing and Wedding Planning

Hey y'all!

Did you miss me? No? Okay, cool.

Anyways, I just wanted to let y'all know that I am still alive (barely) and that I had the best, the craziest, and the most stressful three weeks.

First, we shot three other short films, one in Oxford and London and two around Beaconsfield.

I had 20h workdays and sleepless nights with problems that needed solving in the last minute. I slept at our producer's mom's house (hope I did those apostrophes right) and worked from a kitchen floor. I ran after an SA that decided to grab some lunch without telling me and I tried keeping the mother of our child actress happy. I stood outside in the rain for two days and I stood in for the actors during lighting set ups. I learned about 100 new names during the last four weeks and forgot about 50 of them already. (sorry)

And then, to top it all off, I flew home for the weekend to go to my best friend's wedding. I visited my family, did some business with my bank, did some shopping, an…

That's A Wrap!

That's a wrap on the first NFTS film I had the pleasure to work on! It's been a tough week, four days went by quicker than I could even blink, and I can't believe that we're already shooting the next film on Monday.

Basically, my schedule for the next weeks looks like this: three weeks of First Year Films, going to Germany for the weekend, work on live TV for four weeks, work on commercials for four weeks, before finally going home for Christmas.
No rest for the wicked.
Working on a studio set is a lot of fun, a lot of doing nothing, and a lot of running around to do things that should have happened eight minutes ago. I woke up and went to work in the dark, worked on a dark set, and came home in the dark. But at least it was warm and I didn't get wet. Oh wait, actually that's not true, as I stood outside for a day to make sure no one entered the set. The glorious life of an (aspiring) AD. Next week we will shoot in Oxford and London, meaning a shit-ton can go w…

Weekly Roundup #1

Ladies and Gents, Boys and Girls, a big Hello from your favorite German!

I hope you're doing well and had a lovely weekend. I for one can't believe that it's been three weeks since I moved here, feels more like three days. Time has flown by, it's only four weeks until I fly home for the biggest party of the year (if I'm still alive by then) and it's slowly getting chillier outside.

Autumn, I heart thee.
Books, cozy socks, coffee, candles, walking through fallen leaves. What could be better?!

Anyway, here's a quick roundup of the past two weeks.

Week 2:

I got the amazing opportunity to go to a Sherlock Event in London with Mark Gatiss, Steven Moffat and Sue Vertue.

Yay for this new method of transportation.Caught a fever and massive cold thanks to the amazing British weather.Thanks to a workshop at school I now know that script supervising is hard work.Cider costs 1.5 GBP a…
