16:9 Full HD

Germany 2007, 12' | Director, Screenplay, DoP, Editor, Sound, Producer Marion Pfaus | Music Final Cut Studio | Cast Marion Pfaus, Felicia Zeller

Compared to England and other European countries, Germany is somewhat behind in terms of HD (High Definition), and that by about 12 to 14 months. So, guys and gals, let's get to it! A film that looks at how much is gained when you change from PAL to HD, from 4:3 to 16:9, and at what you can do with it all.
Made with an arts grant provided by the Berlin Senate, 16:9 Full HD is the continuation of In drei einfachen Schritten zum Meisterwerk ("Just Three Simple Steps to a Masterpiece") which was made in 2002 and in which Marion Pfaus demonstrates how to make a home video using only a digital camera and consumer software.


MARION PFAUS alias Rigoletti M (the most unknown popstar) was born 1966 in Baden and has lived in Berlin since 2000. She studied at the Baden-Württemberg Film Academy but now, in addition to making films, works as an interactive media artist and author (including radio plays). Her first novel Aus den Memoiren einer Verblühenden (Memoirs of Someone Withering Away) appeared in 2006.
