Production Blog online again!

Hey everyone

It's been forever since I did my last post and pretty much everyone moved on, including myself.

Still, due to the wide release of the film, I decided to put the production blog online again so you'll be able to read the "hopefully" interesting diary about our experiences in the jungle.

In the meantime, the film also successfully aired on German TV station Pro7 about a month ago.

Have fun reading our stories.

Good German News :-)

Hey everyone,

Everyone else, including US fans will have to be patient for a little longer. I'll keep you posted.

Finally some news...

Hey everyone,

After almost two years, I finally have some news for you guys. "The Tribe" will be released on DVD in 2009.

I got tons of questions regarding "The Lost Tribe". Yes, this film exists and No, it won't replace "The Tribe" but also be released as a separate film in 2009. I do not have any information on the shoot of "The Lost Tribe". This blog only represents the film that was shot originally since I was part of the production team. I was not present for principal photography of "The Lost Tribe". So fans of the original cast, stay tuned, the film will be out soon. I'll keep you updated as I receive new info from the production company.

The Good, the Bad and the Great News

Well you may have been looking for some information about the new film "The Tribe" and all you can find is an empty blog... There is a reason for this, so please continue reading :-)

I'll start with the good news: The Tribe will be coming to US theaters, nationwide. This is all the information I can give you for now.

Followed by the bad news: The distributor asked me to take off any and all information about the film until it's official release. This is a marketing decision that I completely respect. Like everyone working on "The Tribe", I want the film to be as successful as possible. Instead of the blog, I will be concentrating on the Behind-The-Scenes Documentary during this year that will hopefully be on the DVD, once released.

And last but not least, the great news: I had the chance to look at a few scenes of the film during my stay in the US and guys you can look forward to something. The film looks simply amazing! Chris would call it "mindblasting". With the additional scenes, shots and effects that were put in, we don't simply have a movie but a blockbuster.

So stay tuned, keep the link bookmarked and once the release comes closer you may find some information on this page again. For now I'd like to thank everyone reading my blog and have a great time.


I'll leave the comments feature active for the time being.

Reshoots, to make it perfect!

This month are reshoots on the schedule. Like in every other movie, during post the producer, director and editor want to make their film perfect. And only after seeing a rough cut, they know what they have to cut, add or change.

Cut is easy (mostly), add or change a little more difficult. For reshoots, a smaller (sometimes bigger) team returns to the location to pick up some scenes. So in our case, only that we can't really go back to Costa Rica (even though we'd like to. I think we all miss Pura Vida). So the challenge is finding a location similar to the original and of course LA is perfect for that. It pretty much offers everything you need, that's why it's Hollywood :-)

In any case, as you can see. The finishing of the film is coming closer and I'll keep you updated. This week, I'll also finally add the long awaited blog entry from the editor's bay.

A Happy New Year to all of you. It's going to be a big one :-) Maybe we'll even see the finished film this year!

I'll try to post news on this page more regularly. I owe you guys the editor's entry straight from the cutting room that will follow soon. I promise. So stay tuned!
