meet Bernd

Bernd is a friend of mine, he lives in Groningen (Netherlands), it’s German.
I knew him on internet, via email. A common friend, Debora, helps each other to keep in touch.
This video is a walk to arrive in front of the door of Bernd house.
The noises are taken from the original audio of the video footage, with GarageBand I’ve compose the sound carpet like a strange breathe mixed with a strange walk step, just to create a evocative ambience. I worked hard with the rhythm of sounds.
The video is taken with a little MV960 and postprocessed with Final Cut pro to give him a particular dream effect. There is no film editing, it’s a long unique shoot.

Red Panda, Firefox[1], Fire Cat, Fat Fox or Lesser Panda, or Ailurus fulgens (“shining cat”), is a mostly herbivorous mammal, specialized as a bamboo feeder. It is slightly larger than a domestic cat (40 – 60 cm long, 3 – 6 kg weight). The Red Panda is endemic to the Himalayas in Bhutan, southern China, India, Laos, Nepal, and Burma. Red Panda is the state animal in the Indian state of Sikkim. It is also the mascot of the Darjeeling international festivals. There is an estimated population of fewer than 2,500 mature individuals. Their population continues to decline due to habitat fragmentation.[2]


Mozilla Firefox is a free and open source web browser descended from the Mozilla Application Suite, managed by the Mozilla Corporation. Firefox had 21.34% of the recorded usage share of web browsers as of December 2008, making it the second-most popular browser in current use worldwide, after Internet Explorer.[4]


Firefox is a 1982 action film produced and directed by, and starring Clint Eastwood. It was based on a 1977 novel with the same name by Craig Thomas.
The film details a joint AngloAmerican plot to steal a highly advanced Soviet fighter aircraft (MiG-31, NATO code name “Firefox”) which is capable of Mach 6, is invisible to radar, and carries weapons controlled by thought. Eastwood stars as Maj. Mitchell Gant, a Vietnam veteran who infiltrates the Soviet Union, aided by his ability to speak Russian (due to his Russian mother) and a network of dissidents and sympathizers. His goal is to fly the Firefox back to the United States for analysis.

El Salbanelo alias The Goblin

He was a little yougish man, bad-looking and stocky. He was dressed in red, he had bells at the corner of his hat and at the toes of his shoes.
He had small hands, dishevelled hair, misshapen feet. He was lame. He was always on his own and it seemed he flew. He was cheerful and spiteful.
He used to have a good time playing harmless tricks to anybody. At home, at work in the fields, in the hay-barns, at the well and the sheds everything it happenend with no reasonable explication was salbanelo’s handiwork.

  • In the morning they found the horse’s mane had been plaited:
    this was certainly one of Salbanelo’s tricks.
  • El Salbanelo was chasing after me as I had stolen some fruits from the field of my nighbour. He ran after me to the entrance of my house and i’ve hardly been able to go inside.
