Films > In search of - Episode 1

"Since I discovered my passion in filmmaking, I dedicated all the time I had to it. Any free minute was spent in playing with cameras, writing down stories, capturing images anywhere on this planet.

I got more and more lost in projects and in what I loved doing so much: to find truly unique beauty in just about everything and capture it. My life was based around work. My passion turned into routine. I almost burned out and it took me a while to understand what was happening.

That experience has built a bigger-picture understanding of the world around me and my role in it. In an overstimulated world like today it becomes increasinly important to be able to focus, take it slower and identify beauty in just about everything.

After selling all camera equipment in March 2012 to take a 7 month break, motivation is back and life is more balanced than it ever was.

Blickinsfreie is back!"

René Eckert (Founder Blickinsfreie), January 2013


As comeback, Blickinsfreie presents "in search of" - a series of short films showcasing what we have captured the last 4 years all around the globe. Most of the material has never been aired before and gives you an insight in our past projects.

In "episode 1 - The Brazil Experience", filmmaker René Eckert gives an in-depth look into his feelings and describes the motivation behind his comeback in the world of filmmaking. In addition the episode shows the most beautiful images we have captured during our stay in Brazil in 2011.

While most movies out there focus on other people´s lives or even worse on products you should buy or better have, I hope this one makes you look at your life and what you really want to do with it.

Music by the amazing Ólafur Arnalds. The Song is "3055" of the Erased Tapes Collection.
