although i feel quite romantic about them,
almost I would say :
Love at first sight
Super crazy Videos.
I found it while researching!
Definitely a good source for me as a upcoming Director:

What a Drama

I want you. I need you. I get you and I lost myself.

Is it not amazing how much you can produce in a short little week?
In just 5 days my crew and myself created a movie of 1.30 min¨
about the subject Fashion & Freedom
Crazy days, not much sleep, a week that feels like a month, 
starting Monday and you will not believe that Friday your Movie will be screened.
That is just not possible is all you hear.
Just Walk on By please and make it work!!
And then it becomes reality and it is better as you ever  dare to think:

WHAT A DRAMA! ( check the link)
directed by myself Manuela Ernst
made with this  great team:
director of photography: Daniel Lorenzatto
art direction: Justin  Rahantoknam
production: Dorien Boeren

Starring the lovely dance talent:
Nihaila de Palm

Hypnotized by Plastic

Do you also dream sometimes of being an american beauty?
You want it, need it till you get it!!
Believing in all the rituals they offer you till you are unreal like a product.
But still you keep it for yourself even if you lose your wiginity.
Hypnotized by Plastic across the Atlantis till Hollywood and no return.
It is made in USA that is for sure.

For the Visual Culture Minor of my school AMFI
I created a Storybook
"Hypnotized by Plastic"
inspired by Mariel Manuel

I'm stuck in Fantasirony

You are full of Sweetness, Junk and druged by Kitsch. Through the Sugar Tower you fall into another world. Surrounded by a Pearlrain you dive into it, you are feeling small and excitedYou enjoy your special travel, a journey to Fantasirony. A place where Daydreams are Reality, in blue and pink.
