Media Professionals AUSTRIA ∏ ESTONIA ∏ FINLAND NETHERLANDS ∏ SLOVENIA


Vorwort Eigenständig erstellten Schüler und Schülerinnen des BSZ Alois Senefelder München die Publikation von Menschen in Medienberufen ihres europäischen Gastlandes. Das Thema „Media Professionals“ bildete eine gemeinsame Klammer, welche die Projektteilnehmer, mit Leonardo-da-Vinci–Mobilität in verschiedenen Ländern und zu unterschiedlichen Zeiten unterwegs, über diverse Cloud-Plattformen verband. Die Schüler des BSZ interviewten und fotografierten in der Zeit ihrer Praktika ihre europäischen Partner im Gastland. Landschaftaufnahmen und das FashionThema, welches sich mit interkulturellen Vorurteilen befasst, entstanden außerhalb ihrer Schulungen und ihren praktischen Tätigkeiten. Eine junge Generation von Fotografen und Mediengestaltern zeigt, wie sie 2013 mit unverstelltem Blick Europa wahrnimmt, unvoreingenommen neue Kon-

takte in einer vergleichbaren Arbeitswelt knüpft und in der Folge oft auch vertiefend pflegt – gleichwohl, ob sie in Estland, Finnland, Holland, Österreich oder Slowenien entsendet waren. Sie zeigen eigenständige Ergebnisse, die sie mit den heutigen technischen Mitteln erzielen. Der gebundenen Ausgabe liegt im Rückumschlag eine DVD mit Videos etc. bei. An dieser Stelle sei auch den Koordinatoren in den jeweiligen Gastländern sowie der Schulleitung Herrn Karl Heinz Schmid in München gedankt, ohne die diese Publikation nicht möglich gewesen wäre. Dirk Hund, Projekt-Koordinator BSZ Alois Senefelder München Diese Publikation wurde mit Mitteln der EU als LdV-Projekt „Creating and finishing media products by using different new and innovative technologies in Europe“ unter Zertifikat DE/10/ LLP-LdV/MC/Z125 gefördert.


Fashion. different cultures shown in fashion photos – a german-finnish coproduction


If you don‘t jump – you don`t know how to fly. quote for life by creative and cheerful Julia Vornanen


When did you start to be interested in design, how was the finnish education system supporting you on your way to get professional? »When I was maybe 16 years old, I wanted to design clothes. But later, when I was around twenty, I was more interested in beeing a journalist and got here to Oulu, so I acctually came here to be a journalist. On my way studying I realized that I am more visual, that I don‘t wanna do the writing. University gave me good tools, how to use different kinds of software. But I think, university doesn‘t know, what is the real work. I‘ve learned to be a professional more by working, than in school. But university also is a place to link with other students and with companies.« What do you like the most about your job, what drives you? »Getting the idea. Searching for it. How to select the right kind of typography, right kind of colors for the customer. But also the whole process of getting the ideas, when we are brainstorming. I like to be challanged.« Which project did you enjoy the most? »Nowadays I really enjoy doing design for web. I always love the situation when the customer has given his briefing, and you are full or you are empty of ideas. It‘s the situation in the beginning, when still the way is open, that I probably enjoy the most. Also well going teamwork I like and enjoy very much.«

Which things you don‘t like about your work? »I don‘t like the idea that behind everything in bussiness the money talks. Sometimes you have to withdraw your ideas. You can‘t aim so high, because you know that there is no budget for that kind of solution you maybe would wish to implement, that‘s a shame.« Are you creative in your free time? »Yes, I am, I paint and I draw. And I have a band, so I write music and songtext and also do the music.« Do you have any role models? »I admire people who have goals, but there isn‘t one particular role model. Maybe I could say some Buddah somewhere in Asia.« What is, in your opinion, the key to success? »You have to have a flexible mind, and be able to see one point out of all different perspectives. If you are very turned inside, it‘s not good. You need to be open minded.«∫

Julia Vornanen is working as an Art Director at Pakkahoune, an advertising agency in Oulu. Her work includes everything from creating marketing concepts to final graphic design for all the crossmedia channels, both digital and print.


Happy, sad, serious. ville malija – professional photographer and rock star evelyn: When and where have you been born, what is your work here at the Sataedu-school in Villilä and how did you get there? ville: I was born on the 19th of july in Pori, 1981. In Villilä, I’m teaching photography and graphic design and I also create concepts for some advertising. At the moment, I’m working on documentary projects. In 2001, I graduated from this school and after that, I was working as a graphic designer for two or three years. Then I had to do the civilian service instead of going to the army. So, I absolved it here as a teacher, which was very easy, because it was very familiar and nothing was unknown. I was just on “the other side of the table”. After a few years, I moved to Helsinki and went to a photography school.

evelyn: Are you still living in Helsinki? ville: Yes, I’m still living there. I work there as a musician and photographer and sometimes I’m teaching here in Villilä as a freelancer. evelyn: What about your family? Do you have any brothers and sisters or wife and children? ville: No, I have no brothers and sisters but I’m engaged for a long time and I have a french bulldog. evelyn: What do you like most about photography and why do you like photography in general? ville: I like serious and straight photos because they are natural. That’s why I like photography in general; the photographer comes second. Your object is in the first place ›


and you really have to trust and respect your object. One of my favorite photographers is Jürgen Teller. evelyn: It is known that you are playing in a successful alternative rock band of Finland: “Lapko”. So, how do you combine music and photography? ville: I try to practise both alternatingly because I don’t like the feeling to forget how to photograph. I can live on my music. When for example a new CD is released I can live on that money for about one year. After that, it’s time to photograph. But I also try to separate music from photography and school as well as possible. But it’s good to know something about photography and graphic design because, especially in the world of Rock- and Popmusic, everything is full of pictures and it’s good to have the tool to talk about that. evelyn: How long does your band »Lapko« exist ? ville: I founded the band when I was 15 years old with two other friends, not far from Pori, in Harjavalta. Since then, we have the same cast, which is great. We are quite popular in Finland and we will release our fifth album in a few months. We also toured through the USA and Japan. evelyn: How was Japan? ville: It was great! Crazy in a positive sense! It was so crowded and everyone is so busy! When you compare Nakkila to Tokyo, you really have to flip your head around! evelyn: So, you have music and photography and you can live on both. That’s great! Is there something, you don’t like about your work? ville: I don’t like the fine line between fake and »make it better than others«, in both, photography and music. And I don’t like the fact, that everywhere, money is involved.

I think, money is an unnatural thing that you unfortunately need. Money should never be the reason to do something. andrea: How would you describe yourself in three words? ville: happy, sad, serious. gina: Since when are you wearing your hair like this? ville: About ten years I thought of cutting it off but I guess my hair is a way to say something without saying anything. ∆


For my future I would like to have some opportunities and big challenges, I want to grow out of myself and I always want to try to be a better person. – Ville Malija

Lapko is a Finnish alternative rock band formed in 1996 by Ville Malja (guitar and vocals), Anssi Nordberg (bass), and Janne Heikkonen (drums). These two art-school dropouts and a metal worker were originally childhood friends in the small town of Harjavalta. Before the onset of their musical career, the three spent much of their early years interested mostly in sports. Initially inspired by the band NOFX, Lapko quickly evolved from melodic punk rock to a more streamlined and intense alternative rock sound, with influences from bands like Tool, Helmet, and

Placebo. Known for their energetic live performances, their first EP took a long time to form, but the electricity of their shows was partially captured on the self-released Your Special K.O. from 2003. It attracted immediate interest, and their first full-length CD followed the next year. The Arms was recorded for a small upstart label but sold briskly and gained the band a much wider following. Radio play, explosive concerts, and voluminous critical accolades led to a contract with Fullsteam Records.


You often recognize people looking at art, understanding the message and declare this topic to be really important, but then go home and easily forget about it. – Anni Venäläinen

Art shouldn‘t be useful. an interview with curator and visual artist anni venäläinen


Anni Venäläinen is studying art in Pori, Finland and is currently working on her doctorant in the master studies. After Highschool she already knew she wanted to do something with art, being more creative than only studying art history. Beginning her studies, she saw everything from another point of view and, in general, got to see a lot of different places, as for example during an student exchange in Scotland.

Nowadays she is additionally working in the museum pedagogy department of the Pori Art Museum. Therefore she gives guided tours, invents workshops and is responsible for the mediation and education section. For example, the workshop in the Street Art exhibition that we visited consisted of a wall, on which regional artists painted the cityscape of Pori with space for visitors to write on, paint or put stickers on, to be their own little street artists. She told us, that this was one of the easier workshops for which you ›


got an idea rather quickly. »Usually, there‘s a lot of research work to do before and for some art it is hard to create a workshop, like, for example, for abstract works.« Anni started to work at the Museum in 2005 as a guide, first. The longer she kept working there, the more she realized she likes to get to know a lot about different artists, different works, exhibitions and the different variety of art and she gained more and more responsibility. On the other hand, this is not leaving too much room for leisure time and practical art works but Anni emphasized, that she »always wanted to work with art« and not neccessarily do art by herself, especially because it is very hard to only live from your earnings as an artist. She says that working with art may also not always be easy or sometimes not even interesting, but it mostly gets in the second you talk about it to other people having different backgrounds and point of views. As art can transport messages to everyone, it is liked to be used in the media, for example for commercial needs. Anni got to know the frustrating side of these »abuse« of art. »You often recognize people looking at art, understanding the message and declare this topic to be really important, but then go home and easily forget about it.« Anni told us that before her work in Pori she was very interested in politic, always wanted to change something and also tried to get other people to think about problems by her art. »I think I became very zynical«, she declares now. In her mind, art shouldn‘t be useful at all. It should be more of a spiritual thing. Anni never wanted to work in the commercial branche. By her work, she became a media professional in the way, that she can see things in media in a critical way and try to show people the other side of art. µ

Perfektionistisch sowie spontan. ein interview mit food-fotografin ulrike köb aus wien Die Fotografin Ulrike Köb ist spezialisiert auf Foodfotografie und Stilllife und fotografiert vor allem für Kochbücher. In Wien traf ich sie für ein kleines Interview über ihre Arbeit und ihr Leben in Wien. bianca: Wieso haben Sie sich für die Fotografie entschieden? ulrike: Das war eher Zufall. Da ich schon immer im gestalterischen Gewerbe tätig sein wollte, habe ich mich umgesehen. Und die Fotografie hat mir am besten gefallen. bianca: Seit wann fotografieren Sie schon? Wann hatten Sie Ihre erste Kamera in der Hand? ulrike: Ich fotografiere im Prinzip schon von klein auf. Früher hatte ich eine dieser kleinen kompakten Kameras. Mit der habe

ich sehr viel herumprobiert. Vor allem mit Farben. bianca: Wie sind Sie auf die Stilllife- und Foodfotografie gekommen? ulrike: Es ist nicht so, dass ich von Anfang an diese Art der Fotografie betreibe. Zu Anfang, als ich mich entschied Fotografin zu sein, fotografierte ich noch alles mögliche. Irgendwann bekam ich dann den Auftrag für ein Kochbuch zu fotografieren. Da das sehr gut gelaufen ist bekam ich Folgeaufträge, und dann hat es mich gepackt. Da wurde mir klar, dass ich mich spezialisieren sollte. bianca: Sind Sie gebürtige Wienerin? ulrike: Nein. Ich komme vom Vorarlberg beim Bodensee. ›


bianca: Wieso sind Sie nach Wien gekommen? ulrike: Weil man hier mehr Möglichkeiten hat. bianca: Was sind Ihre liebsten Plätze in Wien? ulrike: Mein Studio in erster Linie. Und sonst ist Wien an sich mein liebster Platz. bianca: Ehrlich! Würden Sie sich manchmal einen anderen Beruf wünschen? ulrike: Nein. bianca: Mit welchem Kamerasystem arbeiten Sie? ulrike: Früher arbeitete ich mit einer Sinar und nahm die Bilder auf Dia auf. Heute habe ich eine digitale Hasselblad. Das macht einiges einfacher. bianca: Welches Wort beschreibt Sie in fotografischer Hinsicht am besten? ulrike: Perfektionistisch sowie spontan. Das muss man auch fast sein als FoodFotografin.

Die Bildbearbeitung wird in Zukunft wichtiger. Da wird die Fotografie irgendwann nebensächlich. – Ulrike Köb

bianca: So, jetzt noch eine letzte Frage, wie sehen Sie die Fotografie in der Zukunft? Photoshop. Die Bildbearbeitung wird in Zukunft wichtiger. Kompositionen werden immer mehr mit Photoshop zusammengefügt. Da wird die Fotografie irgendwann nebensächlich. µ


Color, Material and Form. impressions of nature and architecture in the netherlands


Things do not change. We change. floor vlaskamp – graphic designer and founder of studio vierkant Studio Vierkant is a small independent graphic design agency based in Zwolle, Netherlands, founded by me, Floor Vlaskamp. I went to art academy in Kampen and when I was halfway through the whole school, I moved back to Zwolle where I lived before. After my graduation I started my own company there. I did this all by myself but I recently started to look for more collaborations. Besides that I work at the art academy here in Zwolle, named ArtEZ. I teach material studies to graphic design students and I work in the graphics workshop in the letterpress area. When I went to art school I thought I would study illustration

or autonomous art. In the first year we had to do some orientation classes and I decided to do graphic design for one of them. I ended up liking it a lot and choose it as my orientation for the rest of the education. Currently I‘m working on several projects: a documentary about brothers and sisters of autistic people and the trouble this can give in their later life. Another project is a series of ebooks about social media for small business owners. I did the design for the books. Âľ


I didn‘t choose photography, photography chose me. TOOMAS VOLKMANN – PHOTOGRAPHER IN TALLINN How did you discover your passion for photography? » It was all about the frame. When I was a child I saw the camera as a technical thing. Once I looked through the frame of the camera, it totally caught me. The camera frame transformed the wideness of the landscape all around me into something very special, where every detail became more important.« »How did you then decide that you would choose photography as your job? »Things just came to me, I didn’t try to force anything. There was a video by Shannon O’Connor which I felt told the story about my life. The title says »Things you like will find you«. First I studied medicine in Tartu, then I went to Tallinn to study as a drama acteur. After that I travelled as a singer with one of the most famous baroque ensembles

in Estonia. All the time I was doing photography. So I went to London and studied photography. Right after I had the opportunity to work for a new founded fashion magazine. Very lucky start.« And why did you choose fashion as your main business? »Fashion was about earning money, having fun and it was easy. It also started to rise as a new business at that time. I could easily communicate with models and people in this business, probably because of my experiences in playing different rolls as a acteur.« But you also do some stilllife productions from time to time? »Still life is very interesting. There is a small line between dead and alive when you work with stills. As a photographer you have to put life into dead things and choose the right light to bring them to

life. Every thing has it‘s owm story.« Do you think becoming a professional photographer is difficult nowadays? »There is a lot more pressure. The pressure to feel reality is also abstract nowadays because of the digital cameras. You just take pictures and check them looking at the back of your camera. Shouldn’t you just know, what the result would be?! Analog was different, always uncertain, what you get in the end. You had a narrowed amount of pictures you could take, especially when you worked for magazines that had less money. There was a higher risk and I liked that. I was one of the last persons who changed to the digital system. Working with all this Photoshop stuff is changing so much of your reality. I don’t like this part of the work that much, if I had the money, I would hire someone to do all this Photoshop for me with all my pictures.«


Is there a tip you have for freshmen in the media business? »There is one phenomenon: I see a lot of good young photographers, who are really able to work, but they always do not work long enough. Just about 2 till 3 years and then they are gone again. Photography needs to be a lasting excitement for you.« What do you like best on your job, which stiles do you prefer? »I like black and white photography, it is more concentrated on things. I also like shootings on location instead of the studio productions. However most of the time I am shooting in the studio, where I try not to have too much influence on my models. I think you can take a lot better portraits, if you leave this unknown space towards you and your model. In this space you can be outside and at the same time inside the person, which in my opinion is necessary.« Apart from your duties as a photographer, what do prefer doing in your freetime? »I have a boring life. I just like to go to south of spain. I have been there twice and I find it fascinating there. There are so many mixed cultures and history, in which I am very interested in. Nevertheless I would never move there, I just like to be inside there for some time and go outside there again, as it is with the people I take a photo of.« µ


Seeing without eyes. an interview with architect kalle saarinen in rauma The curator Kalle Saarinen is a professional adviser to locals on renovations. We met him at the Tammila Restoration Center to talk about his project in Old Rauma. Founded in 1442, it is an outstanding example of an old Nordic city constructed in wood. That’s the reason why it has become an UNESCO World Heritage in 1991. carina: What’s your job here in Rauma? kalle: I’m an adviser and an architect. Most of the time I give advises to the people who live here

and tell them about their options in relation to the restoration of their houses. lydia: Why did you choose this job? kalle: After working as a contractor I decided to become an architect because I wanted to take my career a step further. I came back to my hometown Rauma in 1977 after my graduation. Since I always felt connected to Old Rauma I decided to take part of the preservation of this historical part of the city. ›


Old buildings tell their one stories if you listen carefully. They tell you about how life was in the olden days and what was important for the people. – Kalle Saarinen


melanie: What do these old buildings mean to you? kalle: Old Rauma has its special character because the houses aren’t very big and stand pretty close to each other. That gives me a feeling of safety. It’s very special for the Finnish culture and forces the inhabitants to be more open-minded and act social. heike: Why are you more interested in restoring old buildings than in creating modern ones? kalle: Old buildings tell their one stories if you listen carefully.

They tell you about how life was in the olden days and what was important for the people. lizzy: Do you try to keep the house’s character while its restoration and how do you do that? kalle: I make the owners aware of the fact that their houses are unique and something special. To obtain the UNESCO World Heritage they are not allowed to make big changes or place modern elements. The government spends 100.000 €


for the restorations in Old Rauma and I‘m responsible for the applications. lydia: But aren’t there any newer houses? kalle: Yes, sure there are 53 newer ones but they aren’t modern, they fit in the old city. In the 1950s Old Rauma was almost destroyed completely because some businessmen wanted to put up commercial buildings in this area. Fortunately they ran out of money.

carina: Are you working on your own? kalle: Yes, but I try to find a qualified follower who has the same passion for that kind of work. He or she has to be very openminded and be able to understand and respect the house’s soul – you have to see without eyes. When I’m finally able to retire I have to move away from Rauma because otherwise I could never stop working.


Like a lottery win. kristi ütt from the estonian national museum genoveva: What is your work at the museum? kristi: Basically, I am doing very traditional archive work. I am organizing and systemizing archival records. We have very traditional archival collections here. Our traditional collections consist of ethnographical works, field works, works from our correspondence and paintings that are made in field work and so on. But I am dealing with the new collections. Like personal archives, archives from organisations and much more. genoveva: Could you imagine to once work in a museum, when you started your career? kristi: Yes. I was raised in a family, where history, museums, archives and that kind of things were very important: My mother worked in a library for more than 45 years. So this

kind of culture work was very familiar to me and it was very natural for me to work in a museum. I knew about the Estonian National Museum when I was only a school kid, so it was like a lottery win for me when I had the chance to come here and work with those people, after I graduated from university. genoveva: How does it feel, to work with all those exhibition pieces that other people may only see through glass or on pictures? kristi: I think it’s an honour – for me. I don’t think every day like that. It’s my work. I’m used to it. genoveva: Is there any exhibition piece that you have especially been keeping in mind through all this time, ›


something that caught your eye? kristi: Yes. Recently, I have organized and systemized an archival collection of a very famous Estonian cookbook writer. Most of the books of course were printed in Soviet times and in early 1990s. She was a very famous lady in Estonia. Everybody in my age and older than me knows who she was. There were several manuscripts, cook book writings and personal memos. And there was some kind of hand written cook book which of course wasn’t from her exactly, but she bought it from some kind of antiquary. It is from the first half of the 20th century. It’s a cookbook from some kind of maybe Tallinn or Tartu cafeteria or restaurant. It’s quite old. Now it’s in the conservation laboratory. genoveva: So it may have inspired her? kristi: Yes, of course! ∫


I wanted to be independent! And being a photographer had always been my dream. – Jaakko Mylly

You have to be crazy. interview with photographer and graphic designer jaakko mylly


Jaakko Mylly is a self employed graphic designer and photographer who not only takes pictures for individuals but also does a lot of advertising for big companies. When we met him he was about to take the photographs of people that participated in the local elections. nelli: Can you tell us a bit more about your jobs? jaakko: I don’t only take pictures of individuals. I design logos and websites for companies and covers for books. nelli: Is it hard to get jobs around Raahe, since it is not such a big city? jaakko: No. Around Raahe, there are about 500 different companies and I also get jobs from all over the country. tobias: When did you start your own business? jaakko: In 2005. After I graduated from Lybecker I worked for another advertising company. I also worked for Prisma (a supermarket chain). It was a horrible job. nelli: So why did you start your own company in the first place? jaakko: I wanted to be independent! And being a photographer had always been my dream.

tobias: So when did you get your first camera? jaakko: In 1996. It was a Canon 300D. tobias: Did you plan the whole thing through? jaakko: No, I didn’t plan that much. It just worked out. I put out some advertising about my company and told the people I knew what I was doing, so I could get some customers. nelli: Being a one‐man company sounds like a lot of work. Do you have any free time left? jaakko: I schedule my whole day, everyday. Every job is in this schedule. Since I am the only one in this company I have to plan my holiday and vacation, too. You have to be flexible. When people require some photographs, you have to be there and shoot them. But I still find time for other things. A few friends and I started a band recently so I began to learn how to play the saxophone. It keeps my mind out of my work. tobias: What advice can you give people that want to start their own business? jaakko: You have to be crazy and have a big, flexible mind! µ


Producing myself at the age of 90. susa serina hakamäki – production coordinator at villilä film studios Susa, a 24 aged production coordinator, works at Villilä Studios where she once studied film. We met Susa and had a nice talk about the challenges of this business, the indispensability of certain character features and her individual personality. melanie: We chose you as one of the media professional we want to be introduced in our leaflet. Do you consider being a media professional means also being an artist? susa: Well, that‘s a tough question. Actually I never considered the fact of being an artist because of my job being a craft anyhow. During production I‘m responsible for the whole coordination. Besides casting and taking care of the actors and actresses it‘s my duty to even find locations to film shootings. When there‘s no production, there‘s still a lot of paperwork

to do. This is why it‘s more about getting the processes and finding creative solutions for the customers‘ vision. You realize need to think forward always be prepared on everything and even have kind of a plan b. lizzy: Could you please try to describe yourself within fife words? susa: Others would probably describe my as precise, utterly reliable, humouristic and kind. Furthermore my people skills are extremely good. melanie: As you work in the film business movies are proboly kind of your passion. Do you have any favorite movie? susa: Not at all. ›

You need to be able to work on your own but it‘s still good to know that one can go back to teamworking. – Susa Serina Hakamäki


lizzy: I fancy the fact that working together must be a need in your business while liaising closely. Won‘t the whole production chain be interrupted if one person doesn‘t go along? Would you describe yourself as a teamplayer? susa: Yes, I definitely am. In my mind teamworking is nicer than always working on your own. You need to be able to work on your own but it‘s still good to know that one can go back to teamworking. melanie: You once studied at Villilä studios. What‘s the most important skill you learned besides the techniques? susa: Never ever be away from work because there are many people who rely on you. lizzy: Which character features do you think everybody needs to own in the film business? Which are absolutely No-Gos? susa: Everybody needs to be tolerant and go along with many different kinds of people. Besides you need to own good communication skills and a lot of sense of occasion, what means you keeping cool and finding a way out if there are any complication. Inappropriate character features are being unreliable, lazy or stolid. ∫


Von Murska Sobota nach Ljubljana. aljoša bei šport tv Wo hast du so gut Deutsch sprechen gelernt? Zwar bin ich der Meinung, dass ich es alles andere als gut kann, aber das was ich bis jetzt weiß, habe ich wahrscheinlich am meisten durch das deutsch-sprachige Fernsehprogramm gelernt. Außerdem von einigen Professoren am Gymnasium. Vor nicht allzu langer Zeit war ich drei Monate als Au-pair in Deutschland, dort habe ich noch fließender sprechen gelernt. Wie bist du zum Filmen gekommen und was fasziniert dich so an der Arbeit mit bewegten Bildern? Ich war schon als Kind fasziniert, was man alles durch diese »bewegten Bilder« sagen kann. Mann kann so viele Emotionen, die man niemals in Worte fassen könnte, zum Vorschein bringen. Wahrscheinlich ist es grade das, was mich so daran kleben lässt. Was sind deine Aufgaben bei Šport-TV? Ich arbeite in der Produktion von Šport TV. Mein Praktikum ist eigentlich ganz dynamisch und ich mache verschiedene Dinge. Von Filmen und Schneiden der TV Beitrage bis zur Produktion von Werbematerial für unsere Kunden. Warum möchtest du in Deutschland studieren und nicht in Slowenien. Warum Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftskommunikation? Eigentlich habe ich schon ein Jurastudium in Ljubljana angefangen. Ich habe sehr schnell festgestellt, dass das in die falsche Richtung geht. Ich war schon immer sehr begeistert

von Werbekampagnen, wie sie entstehen und die Menschen ansprechen. Leider ist die Auswahl solcher Unis mit gutem Studien- Programm in Slowenien schlecht. Deshalb habe ich mich nach langem recherchieren entschieden nach Deutschland zu gehen, einige Unis dort haben mich sehr begeistert. Ich will in meinem Leben etwas gestalten. Verlassen viele Jugendliche Slowenien? Ja, die Arbeitslosenrate von Jugendlichen ist hier sehr hoch. Wir sind noch immer in der Krise und unsere Wirtschaft ist deswegen sehr schwach. Natürlich gibt auch einen großen Überschuss an hochqualifizierten Arbeitskräften, deswegen gehen viele Jugendliche ins Ausland. Bei uns sagt man zu dieser Erscheinung »beg možganov« oder auf englisch »Braindrain« (Abwanderung der Intelligenz einer Volkswirtschaft). Persönlich hoffe ich , dass ich das Wissen, welches ich im Ausland bekomme, auch in Slowenien einsetzen und so etwas zurück geben kann. Slowenien hat mir enorm viel gegeben und ich fühle mich verpflichtet, diese Rechnung einmal zu begleichen. Wo siehst du dich in ein paar Jahren? Mein Ziel ist es einmal eine Werbeagentur zu haben, in der ich mit einem kreativen und frischem Team in allen möglichen Wegen gestalten kann. Ein Wunsch von mir ist es auch für einen kurzen Film Regie zu führen. µ

The Innocamp project. A VIDEO PROJECT BETWEEN GERMAN AND FINNISH STUDENTS IN MUNICH


Seven Finns and their teacher came from Outokumpu to BSZ Alois Senefelder to do a video project with local photography students of F3C class. Their task was to film in small groups a short music video about life in Munich. All video clips had to be filmed with D-SLRcameras, and some of the groups used also GoPro-camera. There were only four days to get all the filming and editing done. On the fourth day the final works were watched. The project went well and all the videos were different and very well-made. Leica Camera AG has donated an X Vario camera. In addition to school working Finnish students get to know Munich city and culture. They also spent one day walking in the mountains in FĂźssen. Âľ
