So I was engaged by Neomadic Wax Productions to conduct two epsisodes of MTV's Rebel Music Staffel 2. Already in the early phases of producing, I worked with the serial producers to determine the plot lines for the two stories and the optical and technological approaches to the game. Shooting for both shows took place in the summers and autumn of 2014 in Myanmar, the USA and Canada. I' ve also provided stills used in MTV's show related campaign and introduction sequences for the show.

Myanmar ripples the voice of the voiceless.
Myanmar, a south-east-Asian country, has been fighting for more than half a century-long battle for individual freedoms. Well, the attractions and sound of this battle have assisted a whole generations of artists to tell the (still evolving) history of their nation's long and arduous journey to liberation - and they have turned to everything from hip-hop and metals to do it.
" Burma's former imperial settlement (renamed Myanmar in 1989) built an independent state in 1947 to become a tyranny after a 1962 war. Discontented by the politics of their regime, the Burmese nation arose on August 8, 1988 (now known as 8888) in a popular uproar that made a big impressio n on the contemporary masters.
"Probably only 7 or 8 years old when the 8888 rebellion took place," Skum, the leading vocalist of the Kultureshock punkband, said, recalling the scene of the opposition threatened with murder. "The shedding of blood also had a great influence on the Y.A.K. group, whose members remembered seeing parts of bodies and bodiless minds on the street after the 8888 outbreak.
She is inspiring despite the fact that her school did not make any reference to policy, 8888 or Kyi's work. By 2012, the state permitted a certain amount of free speech in order to attract more FDI into the state. "We' ve got some liberty, but it's hard to say that it's a true democracy," said Side Effect guitar player Eaiddhi of the nations restricting the Western music and population.
"In front of this new system, this so-called new administration, they just grabbed people[off the street]... my grandmother, my uncles -- they all went to prison," said Rapper Babu, who worked with the man who is regarded as the founder of Myanmar's hip-hop community, Anegga, a founder member of the Acid group.
"Fourteen years ago we weren't supposed to do subterranean shows, the cops would come.... sometimes they'd take you somewhere else like blindfolded," Anegga recalls. "But just think of you trying to talk in a system where the band had to give their texts to the authorities and stick to a print version of the lists of words they were not supposed to use in their music.
As Eaiddhi founded his first punkband in 2002, there were no subterranean bands or group theatres. which organises small acoustical recitals in open spaces. They also recently held a clandestine storehouse concert with groups of punks, metals and hip-hop in the hope that the police would not find out or detain him.
"Thazin Minn of Y.A.K., one of the few women-run activists in the Swiss confederation, said: "Our music is an encouragement to involve girls in society, policy and the economy, to work on an equal footing with men and to be self-confident. Recent funding has improved the web, shopping centres and consumers' goods, but not much for the country's musician.
Indeed, they say, there is a deeper reality behind the semblance of democracies and freedom: little has happened and there is always a danger of policing. "Minn said, "We believe that music has the capacity to persuade the audience to alter their notions.
