    Philosophy on the Street

    For arte.tv we developed this 10 episodes strong video series optimized for Facebook. Layout and look were adapted from the original TV format and translated into ideal social media content. Stylized text inserts work as subtitles and become part of the entire visual art piece.

    The 1:1 framing gives the video the maximum scale on the Facebook feed, so the viewers have fullest experience. In terms of content, we took the key philosophical questions out of each 30min TV episode and passed them to the people in the streets of Berlin, to give them a voice and get some unusual perspectives. This series was produced together with our partners and friends from  Weltrecorder.

    About

    Reframe is a Berlin based director's collective that specializes in high quality online videos. By combining top production value and online media expertise we deliver elegant films designed for an internet audience.

    All of our projects are spearheaded and produced by our creative team, which consists of Moritz Dirks, Simon Ruschmeyer and Otto Stockmeier. For bigger projects we pull aboard colleagues from our large network of film professionals.

    Conception

    Each film has a specific form and function and it is our goal to clearly define these targets from the start. Therefore, each project begins by setting some basic parameters--what's the goal of the video, who is the audience, how will it be shared, etc.-- and from this information we design a concept and strategy that will best meet your needs.

    Production

    Once we've agreed on a concept we bring together the right professionals and the proper tools for the job. Our team stays up-to-date on the latest technologies and equipment, which gives us an edge in providing state-of-the-art imagery. Finally, we go through production and post-production, carefully crafting the perfect video.

    Distribution

    There's more to a successful webvideo than just uploading it. We're experienced in finding the best online outlets, and know how to effectively utilize the blogosphere and social media - so whether you just want advice, or for us to take over the whole online campaign - we can help ensure that your video successfully reaches its audience.
