Eckhard Kruse / GermanyMay 07My first thought about Art by Chance: 30 seconds, wow, that's really short – even for filmmakers who do only short films! But then, it's also the ultimate story-telling challenge. One idea, just a few images, no sound and then millions of people of different cultures are going to see it – with hopefully some of them getting an impression that lasts longer than 30 seconds. Well, it works: Months after the public screenings, by chance I met my ex-boss and the first thing he said was: “Recently, I was at Berlin airport and suddenly saw your 'fastest way' on some display. I liked it a lot!”
I now participate for the second time and I am very happy to have made it again into the selection. I really like to congratulate the Art By Chance Team for their great work and for this unique concept.
