Behind The Stars

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:10293592_834374553258290_1381879587973611078_o

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.

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:)

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
