Short Talks PURE - Mauricio López Fernández

Short Talks met up with director Mauricio López Fernández and producer Rebeca Gutiérrez Campos during the Berlinale 2012 at the Marriott Hotel at Potsdamer Platz. That way we kept our promise to shoot our interviews at locations, where we have never shot before.

Short Talks PURE - Rosana Cuellar

Our first interview during the Berlinale 2012 was also the most turbulent. At first director Rosana Cuellar had scheduling problems, then we had to quickly file an application for an impromptu film permit. We overcame both obstacles, you can see the result here!

Short Cut

Five interviews, eight guests and two cameras - the only thing we can't put into numbers is how much more time it's gonna take us until we release Short Talks 2012. We are continuously working on the main film as well as the separate interviews with all the directors, cinematographers, producers and actors. Stay tuned!

The entire program, pretty please!

"Which film is recommended?"; "Which block should I watch?" - There is only one answer to all those frequently asked questions: Who doesn't watch the entire selection has missed the most interesting part!

Short Talks shoots inside the Berlinale Palast

We interviewed the team behind "The man that got away" at a very special location. While the crowds were gathering around the red carpet to catch a glimpse of the arriving celebrities, we entered the Berlinale Palast through an employee entrance. After passing some security checks we were ready to set up our gear inside one of the Berlinale's official interview rooms.

Adventurous Interview

Since our last blog entry we have seen many films and scheduled several meetings but yesterday we shot this year's first interview. Needless to say, hardly anything went the way we meticulously planned beforehand.

Snapshots 2012

Red bears, moviegoers and... Meryl Streep. Our new Berlinale 2012 photo gallery shows these snapshots and even more. Steal a glance at the Short's office - a room decorated with posters and big schedules on the walls.

Say goodbye...

...to storytelling. Never in the last five years has a program-motto been so present throughout the shorts like in 2012.

The boys are back!

Berlinale 2012 today premiered the first part of this year's short film program. Short Talks of course dropped in right away and got a taste of how diverse and open minded the selection turned out again.
