Unwind Rewind 84 There’s a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in

As Leonard Cohen teaches us

“Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in”

Ahead of Hanukkah, the festival of light , we go back to our childhood dreams, our heartbreaks and connect to our inner child’s wishes. We remind ourselves to accept darkness in order to have light. We remember that we are all equal even if different. That the contrast of black & white is necessary in order to find balance. No darkness without light, no light without darkness.

May you all have a wonderful Hanukkah and get lost in an abundance of light…

Inspiration, passion & creativity…

Me&M

Working as a freelance producer you hop from one intense time job to another. When you have some time off in between (AND you finish all your other to-dos) it’s a pleasure to spend it creatively and passionately. Do you know that feeling when people just give each other great ideas and energies to go DO something creative? That’s called inspiration. I wish more people would have this kind of effect on each other and would use even their fears, demons and tears for producing positive things instead of wasting time on complaining whining & moaning. “Excelsior” – for those who’ve seen Silver Linings Playbook. Life is beautiful, we just need to see it, be grateful and embrace it, even in darkness. ‘There’s a crack in everything, that’s how the light comes in’ (L.Cohen)

M&M 4

We only needed a few minutes to throw some ideas and the girl was already filming. Shiran Pomerantz is the name and photography is her game. She likes Lana Del Rey, I like Leonard Cohen so the song choice was easily made. Black & White for the vibe. Location: my house. Shiran’s Canon 60D. She would edit it and in a few hours it was already online. We weren’t supposed to get any lighting, props, production or hair and make-up but by total coincidence some colleagues were using my back terrace for a TV-shoot so we ‘borrowed’ their hair services. While filming the intro, the Babyliss slipped out of the hairdresser’s hand and landed warmly on my shoulder. No panic, just some skin off, lots of cream, helping hands and a pretty wound. They say my skin heals fast. And then it leaves you with a little scar…
