WORKSHOP: ‘PRODUCING ‘THIS AIN’T CALIFORNIA’ – Ronald Vietz (Producer)
RAINDANCE FILM FESTIVAL [DAY 4]
Tutor: Ronald Vietz (Blow Film, Volvo, Toyota, BMW, Mercedes, Coca Cola Company)
Raindance Berlin invites you to spend a fascinating few hours listening to Ronald Vietz, producer of ‘This ain’t California’ discuss the various challenges, dilemmas and suprising joys of producing a major documentary.
This Ain’t California” redefines the documentary genre. In 90 minutes, we see the GDR more sharply, more clearly: the skater subculture shows that not all was grey-on-grey and drab clouds of Trabant fumes. This Wildfremd production (Ronald Vietz & Michael Schöbel) by director Martin Persiel takes original clips of the “wheel-board-riders” – straight out of the East German scene in the 80s – and mixes it with animations and reencounters with the protagonists today. It is not just a well thought out story on its own – this film also raises the aesthetic bar.
