No, I am not homeless and I did not end up living on the street with an open fire. The photo shows me in one of the several film sets at the current exhibition “Die Filmfabrik von Michel Gondry” at Deutsches Filmmuseum.
This movie factory is an film set art project of film which has been exhibited in other places worldwide and has won several awards. Now in Frankfurt at the Filmmuseum, visitors can actually produce their own movie, either as a group or by joining a team of strangers and forming their own group.
I took a guided tour after work, which the Filmmuseum regularly offers, which gave me a basic overview of the exhibition, the sets and some background information on the artist and movie making. However, I desperately need to go back for one of the three-hour (!) movie-making sessions, which sound like great fun. The museum provides props, costumes and technical equipment, so nothing is needed except probably a tiny little bit of talent or simply courage for your own Hollywood – Bollywood Movie Career!
