Two months before the delivery of the first production models of the Lumix GH3 Panasonic invited some of Germany's leading photo- and video bloggers for a workshop in Hamburg to test the camera and at the same time shoot this multimedia short for the social skateboard project I-Punkt Skateland. Both the workshop, and film are directed and edited by Simon Sticker.
Simon Sticker is a German documentary visual storyteller living in Denmark. In his work he combines stills and video seamlessly to create compelling multimedia stories. He has worked all over the world on assignments for big and small NGOs like the WHO or the Medical Relief Alliance. Also, he is pursuing personal projects to explore the possibilities of modern multimedia storytelling and telling the stories he cares most about. He is driven by the idea that a better understanding of different life circumstances and overcoming stereotypes is the first step to creating change in the world - and visual storytelling is a brilliant tool for that.
His project HUMANS took him all over Africa, to explore the human condition with simple questions about life, love and dreams, resulting in a series of short-films about different people. The project has been expanded to other countries all over the world. Simon spends his time between assignments, personal projects, sharing his skills and ideas in workshops and lectures.
