DAS VIDEOTECH

During the late nineties, just before the dawn of the new millenium, an Austrian short film director called Petra Hoffman made a series of cutting edge video journals. Through a contact working on a car bootsale stall that sold starwars figures (in their boxes) Petra approached James Nation and me with a view to give us starring roles in the pieces. After seeing the scripts James and I decided that we would appear in the shorts for 400dm each which we would have donated to the 'just two more scoops' charity in vienna. Sadly the masterpieces never made it to air after a lack of equity membership on our part forced Petra to re shoot using 2 unknown girls from the former yugoslavia. The replacement films are still shown to this day on stl1 and stl2 in countries all across europe. Here are some of the original series.......for more visit the delifinger blog

Love the videos saw them on the Delifinger blog, good stuff, particularly the music. Nice story too. Got anymore car-boot contractual work from the 90s? You should make a DVD! ;-)
