About

Filme in der wachsenden Randsportart Langstrecken-Rennradrennen sind oft nur mit viel persönlichem Engagement, Budget und Zeiteinsatz möglich zu realisieren. Förderstellen und Finanzgeber sind noch zurückhaltend und unterstützen wenig bis gar nicht.
 2011 haben mein Team und ich mit viel Zeit und Liebe unseren ersten Film über diese Sportart und auch das Race Across America erstellt. Dieses Projekt wurde finanziert durch privates Geld der Protagonisten, unser eigenes Budget und schon damals durch eine Crowd über Pre-Sales der Blu-Rays und DVDs.
       Mehr als 10 Jahre später haben wir das größte Archiv an Race Across America Videomaterial mit Fokus auf dem inzwischen besten Sportler in dieser Sportart, Christoph Strasser, gesammelt. 


(ENG) The production of a movie in this growing fringe sport of long-distance racing is often only possible with a lot of personal commitment, budget and time input. Funding agencies and financiers are still reluctant and provide little to no support at all. 

 In 2011, with a lot of personal commitment and time invested, my team and I made our first movie about this sport and the Race Across America. This project was financed by private funds from the protagonists, our own budget and already then by a crowd through pre-sales of the Blue-Rays and DVDs. More than 10 years later, we have collected the largest archive of Race Across America video footage with focus on the best athlete in the sport, Christoph Strasser

"it's all about..." Film & Buch (film & book)


       Die Basisfinanzierung (Reisekosten) um das längste und härteste Radrennen der Welt zu filmen ist bereits erfolgreich erreicht.
       Mit dem Budget wollen wir einen authentischen und hautnahen Film, der nicht nur dem Radsportler, aber auch jedem Menschen der auf der Suche nach Motivation für seine Ziele ist, erstellen, wie es ihn noch nicht gab.
 

 Seit 2007 filme und produziere ich Filme im Sportbereich. Es brachte mich immer wieder zu den längsten Radrennen der Welt und unterschiedlichen Menschen, die diesem Sport aus verschiedensten Motivationen nachgehen. Der wohl herausragendste ist Christoph Strasser. Vom ersten Radversuch bis zum aktuellen Rekordversuch vergingen nur wenige Jahre. Das umfangreiche Archiv war nur möglich, weil ich über die Jahre eine freundschaftliche Basis erarbeitet habe, die es auch in harten Situationen zulässt, dass die Kamera dabei ist. 


(ENG) The core funding (travel expenses) to film the longest and toughest bike race in the world has already been successfully done.

With the budget we want to create an authentic and close-up movie, which is not only for the cyclist, but also for everybody who is looking for motivation to reach their goals, like it did not exist before.

 I have been filming and producing sports films since 2007. This, again and again, brought me to the longest bicycle races in the world, where I met all kinds of people who are doing this sport for several different incentives. Probably the most outstanding of them is Christoph Strasser. Only a few years passed between his first attempt of participating in a race and the current record attempt. The extensive archive was only possible because over the years, we have developed a friendship which allows me and the camera to be present at even the hardest times.



        Wir begleiten im 3-Mann-Team den Antritt des Ausnahmeathleten, der seit vielen Jahren auf diesen Tag hintrainiert und - wenn alles gut geht - Geschichte schreibt mit dem 6. Sieg beim Race Across America. Auf dem Weg zur Ziellinie wird episodenhaft das Leben von Strasser aufgerollt und gezeigt, dass das wirklich harte nicht nur das Rennen ist, sondern das tägliche Training, die dutzenden Vorbereitungsrennen, die Erfolge und vor allem die Niederlagen die diesen Weg zeichnen.

 

(ENG) Our three-man team will accompany the start of this exceptional athlete, who has been preparing himself for this special day for many years and if everything goes well, will write history with his 6th victory in the Race Across America. On his way to the finish line, Strasser’s life is rolled up episodically and it is shown that the real challenge is not only the race itself, but also the daily training sessions, the dozens of preparation races, all successes and, moreover, the defeats that leave their mark on this path.

Risks and challenges

(DE) Die Risiken sind klar. Christoph kann aus gesundheitlichen Gründen oder äußeren Einfüssen (Unfall, Wetter,…) das RAAM 2019 abbrechen müssen. Dann wäre das Ziel 2019 nicht erreicht. Der Film würde aber trotzdem realisiert werden.
Ein weiteres Risiko ist, wenn die Gesamtsumme nicht erreicht wird, dass der Film zwar realisiert wird, aber die Fertigstellung sich verzögert. Wir werden es aber auf alle Fälle schaffen.

(ENG) The risks are clear. Christoph could be forced to give up due to physical or external (accident, weather…) reasons. In this case, the target for 2019 would not have been reached. The movie, however, would still be realised.
A further risk is, that if the total amount is not reached, the movie will still be realised, but the completion will be delayed. But we will definitely manage to do it.
