CAPSULE was my sixth film and my second unconventional, full-length film. Running time: 100min. Even all my filmworks became famous by filmfreaks and ovations from the critics, I
never get any money for producing new experimental films. Other german film-makers were sponsored by various foundations, television or the state and made never performed junkfilms while my films were
screening at festivals all over Europe. But i didn’t mind that, lend me at the bank another 100.000$ and began film shooting again and again.
CAPSULE were shot in 3 various rotten, old villas in Germany.It was sometimes extremely dangerous, several ceilings broke down and some tramps and junkies felt disturbed.
For the first time i used an “Arriflex”-filmcamera and Zeiss-objectives, because of the better tecnic for my kind of filmmaking with permant double or more exposures inside the camera. Some scenes in this film
are 5th times exposed in the good old Arri 16S. Beside Marion Hold there were two actors: Bruno Hoffman, a german performance artist and Harald In Hülsen, a former friend of mine.
To reduce the costs, I did everything by myself: I wrote the book, shot the pictures, set the light, made the make-up, especially marions bald head and organized drinks and drugs. I composed the sound, cut the film and painted the filmtitles.
