Hei, dear diary
I think the most beautiful things are hidden things, things that lie behind something and I just wanted to share with you some little beautiful moments and feelings that I had when creating the music video for Star Caesar, which was mostly filmed in Greenland.
So one nice winter evening we took a small-small plane to Nuuk,Greenland and flew exactly through the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen. Here is a picture:
This was our little red house in Nuuk. I draw this picture during the crazy snowstorm that lasted for 3 days. We were just sitting and drawing, watching the waves and eagles that flew by.
This is me and the wool socks that my grandmother made for me sitting outside in – 30 degrees and watching the northern lights.
And those are two elves who are hanging out at our veranda in the national costume . Can you imagine that the colourful part of the womans’ costume is made of zillions of tiny pearls!In the old times they used fish eggs for that.
Everyone had his own boat or motor sleigh standing next to his house.
Our house was made of wood as most of the older houses in Nuuk. During the nights were we often wondering what if the polar bear should suddenly appear in the window. Normally they don’t come to the town because they are afraid of people. Still, some years ago a foreign guy was building a house there and went early in the morning out of the half-finished house to pee. Suddenly he saw from the corner of his eye a white dog standing behind him. Well, then he turned around and it was something a little bit bigger and furrier than just a dog…and he was lucky to have got rather fast legs:)
For some reason the eyes of the locals always started bursting sparkles when they talked about food, especially about whale skin. Well, as we stuff ourselves mostly with veggies, fruits and tons of cocoa we did not try it of course, but our friend who had eaten it once in a soup said that it tasted like a chewing gum for a stupid foreigner who is not used to it:)
And I think it is the best feeling ever to be stuck in the snowstorm, watching snowflakes, shooting a video and having your 12-tone xylophone with you, making songs of winter and warmth in your heart. And knowing that those moments are always with you and now also with you who you read this:)
So, and this is our plane that still managed to take off with tons of antifreeze, one extra pilot and without the wheels touching the ground.And even the door did not close because the snow was just everywhere:)
But we made it and finally, about 6 month later this little adventure turned into a video and now I can finally go and bake some gingerbread and make a song for you for Christmas:)
LOVE to you all
