Marteria – Zum Koenig geboren
Born to be king, but making a muck of life. In a dark studio Daniel Franke and Martin W. Maier filmed the way of life of a self-appointed king. Palms turn into clocks, a gun smoothing the way to the cut, not enough for a suicide. The word \”Njet\” combines to a busdoor, closing. Paper-mache made he drives through the studio set, led by a star, towards the faceless dancers. Money raining from above and a door guiding the way to marriage. In the end not everything is like in the beginning. The dancers are wearing suits now, the set fades away, leaving a rarely lit space. With their love to detail and in the style of Gondry, Franke and Maier have created their own Fantasy.
