I was in Berlin filming interviews for Australian filmmaker Richard Lowenstein´s documentary about Rowland S. Howard. One of my first interviews was with Thomas Wydler. I had been filming on my own in Berlin with out any assistance using two cameras. The big camera Sony Z1 and then the smaller Canon 7D because of the great HD quality of the camera. I had filmed two other people prior to this, Oliver Schütz and Christoph Dreher. I was stressed, running late and Thomas was very patient. I was all thumbs that day and as a result Thomas was kind enough to do a second interview with my loyal and helpful ha, ha assistant interviewer Chris Hughes. We managed to do a proper interview in the same restaurant. The one thing I like about this photo is the colour coordination. Here Thomas looks deep in thought pondering the future of the universe.
