I started my research for a new documentary at the storehouse of props.co, the biggest collection of everyday items used for film and theater. I took some snapshots while working on a trailer with Björn, Piers and Germaine. In the following we did a short Trailer for a possible film there.
I am happy to announce that RIFF (Rome independent film festival) is going to screen “Living Habits”. I hopefully see you there in May!
“Living Habits”: my graduation film for the Erasmus Mundus Master Course Docnomads
Director: Tobias Pehböck
Grazianos and Ursulas living habits are a bit different as you may know. They live with their 11 year old daughter Jamila for more than 17 years in their camper van. During my finals semester with Docnomads I joined them in their life, living myself in a camper van. We shared stories, food and places to be. Out of the time together my graduation film “Lebensgewohnheiten” was formed. With this film I graduated my studies with Docnomads in 2014. The Erasmus Mundus Master Docnomads was one of the most inspiring times in my life. Travelling with a wild bunch of documentary filmmakers was exciting, shootings short films in three different countries, learning from different experiences made in the filmindustry all over the world.
Director: Tobias Pehböck
The short documentary “Fresh Roots” follows the passionate B-boy Ren in his life as a breakdancer in the capital of Hungary. He sketches the development of the Hungarian Breakdance Scene and describes the main value of the Hip Hop movement in Europe while traveling to a breakdance battle with his friends and Crew mates. They have one common goal: to present the Hungarian on the international Breakdance floor.

Since the end of September 2012 I ve the pleasure to study with Doc Nomads, a documentary film directing Erasmus Mundus Master Course that implement studies in three different Film Universities in three different European Countries. In the first Semester we, 23 students from 20 different nations all over the world, are studying at Lusofona University in Lisbon, Portugal. In the beginning of February we move to Budapest to study at the University of Theatre and Film Arts. In the 3rd Semester we are going to study at LUCA, College Sint Lukas Brussels in Belgium. In the fourth Semester we will split up in three groups to film in one of the three countries our final film. So far I am planning to visit the Algarve in South Portugal for my final movie and film a documentary about the Surfers searching for the biggest waves and living the whole year in nature.
Thx to Asia for pasting all of us in one picture, my colleagues from all over the world. We are having a really good time, and its a pleasure to work together and learn from each other!
