This post is not a homage to the TV show, it’s actually the number of hours until my documentary will be posted on

For those of you just tunning in, last November I went to Oberpfaffelbachen, Bavaria to film a documentary about this tiny village and their giant ramp. Since I returned in December, I’ve been editing and gearing up for the movie release. Well, that day has finally arrived.

The documentary is titled “The Ramp” and it currently runs just under 35 minutes. With the assistance of an enlisted geek friend of mine, in addition to watching it straight from, you will be able to download a quicktime to your desktop, iPod or iPhone. That’s right, I’m bigtime. I’m going to sleep now.

Tomorrow is a big day. But before I go, remember this name: Franz Brendl.


Extreme Blog Makeover

As you’ve probably noticed, I have a new blog  header. Look at me! And for good reason. Things on the documentary front are moving along and I’m trying to make all my sites look nice and pretty. Much more is coming soon.

Ok, I’m somewhat new to the blogosphere (I don’t even know if that’s a word) but I’ve been getting lots of WTF and lots of less than subtle questions regarding my Flickr photos and YouTube videos. I guess not everyone is my Mom and knows what the hell I’ve done.  

For those of you who don’t like to scroll, here is a brief recap: Last November, I traveled to Oberpfaffelbachen, Bavaria to film a documentary about a small village and their Rampenfest.  What is Rampenfest? Well, it’s just like Octoberfest except there is a giant ramp involved. As to why it was built, that’s why I went over there so I’m not going to tell you until I finish the documentary. 

But there is good news – the documentary should be finished in about a week. I hope. I pray. Stay tuned.

What is this you ask?Its a clip from the documentary, I answer.Thank you, when will you have more to share, you ask?Stop asking so many questions, I answer. Editing is a beautiful but painfully long process and I need more time to finish. And my eyes hurt. Hopefully I will post another short clip in a few days. In the meantime, enjoy.

Guten Tag

First off, allow me to apologize for not posting or really communicating with anyone while I was gone. Wifi is hard to come by in the middle of nowhere.

Anyway, I am back, sleep deprived and had an amazing experience shooting over there. The whole experience was unreal. I know you have questions and I probably have answers so I promise I will do a better job with blog posts.
