Same Player Shoots Again

„SCHAUPLÄTZE was my first short film. But it got lost somehow. However, two leftover shots remained and became the first two shots of SAME PLAYER SHOOTS AGAIN. They form some kind of prelude. The rest of the film, after the title consists of a three minute shot repeated five times, like the five balls in a pinball machine. It was shot in black and white and then repeated five times, dyed in a different color each time. It did not really turn out a color film. Just a bit of blue, red, yellow and green along the road.”
