What is Seppi doing in London?

Phew, not gonna lie - blogging on a daily (ok, more or less) basis will be quite a challenge. But since I love challenges - here we go again! Day 2 on the blog, October 03rd, 2017. Let's do this! :)

Today was hectic, to say the least. But yea, before I go into detail, I should probably explain what I am actually doing here in London since a lot of people are asking. Very simple short answer: I am currently working freelance for The Yacht Week and The Ski Week as a filmmaker/editor since three months. In detail: I am working on a lot of backend organization like sorting and archiving material from the entire year. But of course also editing advertisements / social media assets / etc. Basically trying to help wherever I can. It's amazing! :) I am learning a ton of new things with every single video we are creating in here. From organization thru content creation to marketing and distribution. Just glad to be surrounded by all those incredible talents and to learn from them! Just stoked! :)

Ok, cool Seppi, but "What is The Yacht Week?" someone might ask! Since you are not the only one who asked this question, the digital team decided to create a video to answer exactly that question! One of my first videos about a year ago for The Yacht Week - click HERE! In case you are lazy, just watch this one below. Pretty much sums up everything we are working on all day, every day!

To me, this is the dream for every content creator. Seriously! Both events, The Yacht and Ski Week are just out of this world. But not only from a filmmakers perspective. As a guest, you are escaping reality for one entire week. It's impossible to describe. The people on site. The event. The organization - vibes - day parties - food - EVERYTHING! Just insane! Beginning of the year I've been working on this year's Ski Week trailer which gives you a little more insight on what we've been up to during our time in Obertauern, Austria.

2.8 million views speak for itself I guess. Just stoked. Everybody involved did a fucking greeeat job!

And yea, to link up to what I started with. It's been one of those days you just spend in the office being stressed about a loooot of emails and edits at the same time! It's fun, but nothing really exciting to show from today. Time for me to sleep. Wakeup call at five, as always. I hope this gave you a little bit of an insight on what I'm doing right now in London. It's a lot more stuff in the making which I'm veeery very excited about! So crazy just thinking about it, only a few weeks left until I have to move on and get serious on all my upcoming projects! Just incredible!

Hope everyone had a kick ass day! Talk to you tomorrow! /Seppi

LONDON x TIMOTHY AULD

It takes quite long to get back into blogging mode, to always take a camera with you again and shoot the fun stuff instead of just enjoying the moment! But it's great, love slowly getting back into it! The past week has been a rapid one once again! Spent a ton of time at the begging of the week at the office doing loads of organizational things, left to London for a shoot on Wednesday and got back home just in time for the weekend kick off last night!


Wednesday /
London all in all has been a greaaat experience, even though that there've been a bunch of issues this time. But lets start in the beginning. Left to the airport at 5pm on Wednesday. Flight delayed about 2 hours. Landed in Luton (London) around midnight. All train connections shut down due some safety reasons. After a bunch of reschedules I've been in a bus at 2am to London centre, took an Uber from there to the place we've been staying at. Fell into my bed 04am, with completely (and yes, absolutely fully soaked) wet clothes as the weather has been as shitty as it could get. 2 hours sleep!

Thursday /
Bang boom bang; wakeup, change clothes, get things prepped and start the day off. London Underground Tube, hectic, coffee, all smiles - kick off! Simon took a million photos, I followed around, trying to help as much as I can and basically capturing as much as I could to be able to do a little documentary for "Timothy Auld". Fun but long day ended a little earlier than expected as it started to rain again! Anyhow, we've been more than lucky with the weather we had as during our main shooting period we didn't get a single water drop. So things went great 100%! Super excited to see all the photos. After that it's been time for some Indian food and a bunch of beers and a massive chill phase!



Friday /

Sleep, wakeup, pack, checkout, breakfast, travel, interviews, enjoy, smile, travel, airport, fly home.


Thats it from London this time. Talk to you later!

ABSOLUTELY

Absolutely, back on track! With EVERY single part in my life. Now I know, why it's so important to be honest with everything. I've been lacking a bit since Norway to really be focused all the time again, but since Monday I am working with realistic (not used to have reasonable daily goals haha) todo lists. And I realized I that I work so much more effectively that I am 100% back on track with emails, personal things, meetings and literally everything. Even a bit of sport got squeezed into my tight schedule today! Just soooo stoked to be so happy all the time while working even though these are the things I refused to do properly haha. So today has been another full day at the office, started out sunny, turned out to be rainy in the late afternoon but it didn't really matter to me today as I've been just back in my 'gogogo' mode all day. It simply feels great, even started out digging into kick ass color grading stuff today, another thing on my list since about a year! So yea, work smart and effective. Even have time to catch up with a bunch of friends today - feels INSANE! Time to call it a day after a solid 10 hour day with mails, proposals, meetings and a ton of other things at the office!

Ah, btw as I didn't do any pictures today, this shot is from Tromsø, Norway, I did a couple of weeks ago! Simply looooove Norther Lights!

Talk to you tomorrow! /Seppi


Thanks, Japow!

If I could tell anyone how it felt last night at the last event of The Ski Week in Japan, you would get massive goosebumps for sure! I had an incredible week all over here in Japan, and actually I want to do everything, but not going home. Along the way I've met a crazy amount of new persons with the same spirits. Working has never been as much fun as it is nowadays. Only downside is, that I dropped last night my 35mm lens at the party. It's not cracked but also not working properly anymore - so before the next jobs I have to figure that out. Sucks a little bit as I was planning on heading up to Niseko with a fun little crew this evening in order to get a couple of days off. But since theres a lot of work in front of me and its financially smarter to head back home I figured I would do that.

Today has been already a long travelday. Made my way early morning from Hakuba to Tokyo, and from Tokyo to Narita Airport. As I have to wait a bunch of hours for my flights I will spend a bit of time online, as this is something I've had absolutely zero time at all.

Spent the past two hours on Google, trying to figure out what I have to do in order to move over to Sweden this spring. Had a million talks about this all over the week and the more I think about it, the more I love the idea to move somewhere else! But as Hamburg is still another option as well I want to check this for sure as well! Gonna keep you in the loop, trying to keep going with everything as well as trying to figure out next step of my life.

Anyhow, I'm on the road now since 9 hours and will be on the road another 29 hours until I will arrive back home - so there will be loads of time to think about everything and for sure to chill a lot as I'm fairly hungover today haha.

Out from the Airport! Big Japow recap on the blog is rolling in on Tuesday morning! :)
