Director Statement

To realize this film was definitely one of the greatest things in 2016. I mean, it is just an incredible honor to be part of Hamburg's new landmark and everything that comes with the communication around it. The production itself was just crazy, we had so less time in the different places, as there where still constructions going on. Everyone was just super nervous about the drones crashing in the hand shaped design walls of the grand hall. But thanks to an amazing team everything went well. We all were so stoked, when we saw the interactive version for the first time. This definitely was an awesome production on all sides.
