Stories told in photos and film – all from a single source. New at GoSee is Filme von Draussen : The core team of the Swiss film production company is made up of three specialists who have the right solution in store for you when it comes to everything and anything to do with outdoors, sports and lifestyle in the open air. Particular comfort zone of the crew is in topics such as mountain biking, climbing, skiing, hiking or running, and they also know their way around places other photographers and filmmakers don’t even know how to get to – on deep powder slopes, remote trails and even vertical cliffs.
Among the clients of Filme von Draussen are outdoor and sports brands, touristic destinations and all brands which consciously choose an active and adventurous target group.
All three, including founder Tom Malecha, are at home in Zurich, Switzerland : “Contrary to what our name suggests, our crew not only makes films but also emotional photos, in which the entire lifestyle is perfectly and congruently captured besides the action.” After around fifteen years of working for different creative agencies in Hamburg and Zurich, office air became a bit too thin for Tom Malecha at some point, and he founded Filme von Draussen. Today, he’s responsible for creative direction, photography, camera, and post production. At his side, you’ll find producer Christof Pluemacher as well as DOP Stefan Dux.
Here on GoSee.NEWS, Filme von Draussen presents an introduction with a short reel of moving images to grant a first glimpse at its work.
Tereza MUNDILOVA c/o SHOTVIEW ARTISTS MANAGEMENT filmed supermodel and soon-to-be mom Toni Garrn for Deutsch VOGUE. The production company was Goodhouse Films with Executive Producer Julian Brinkmann, Senior Creative Producer Gwen Teichmann and Producer Jennifer Bachert.
The interview for the magazine was conducted by Maria Hunstig, born in 1988 and with Vogue since 2018. We quote : “VOGUE has accompanied Toni Garrn already for more than a decade – both professionally and privately. It was only last year that we presented the German top model, freshly engaged to the man who is meanwhile her husband, on the cover of our June issue “All About Love”. And, of course, we were also there for the next chapter in the lives of Mrs. and Mr. Garrn/Pettyfer : The couple is expecting a baby. At the end of February, we met up with Toni Garrn in Berlin to capture the first photos of her pregnancy in an exclusive video and talk to her about how her life has already taken a 180-degree turn.” Read the whole interview online.

Blonde To Black Pictures and Thelonious Punk Records present the music video for ‘Lost Soul’ by Collette Cooper. Directed by sought-after artist and animator Eddie Apollo with renowned filmmaker and entrepreneur Sadie Frost, the video immortalizes vocalist, songwriter and multi-disciplinary artist Collette Cooper in a vibrant and unique aesthetic which captures the spirit of the deeply rooted, raw blues music it was designed to underscore. Traversing the backstreets of a shadowy metropolis with confidence and style, Collette Cooper cuts an ethereal figure among a cast of shady characters, ultimately ascending into a surreal utopia filled with a whole host of awe-inspiring surprises!
The essence of the video evokes thoughts of Japanese animation studio Ghibli, but is clearly marked by the graffiti-like, comic strip style which rising star Eddie Apollo is becoming increasingly famous for. Its narrative perfectly complements the sound and lyrics of the song ‘Lost Soul’, as was intended when it first came to mind.
Its creator Sadie Frost explains : “When I first heard Collette Cooper’s new song ‘LOST SOUL’ it sent shivers down my spine, and I immediately knew that I wanted to create an apocalyptic animated world in which she and the band could perform. Something that commented on the feelings of doom and gloom we’ve all felt during the pandemic. For me, Collette’s music has always had a magical quality to it, and I wanted to convey the positive, bluesy vibes of ‘Lost Soul’ by taking her audience on a redemptive journey into a heavenly world full of love, compassion, hope and humor.”
Cooper herself has faced a number of extreme challenges throughout her life, but by projecting her emotions through creative songwriting, she has used these experiences to develop and grow as an artist, ultimately making her stronger. A palpable sense of these intense feelings can be detected in the song ‘Lost Soul’ and provides authenticity to the project as a whole. Speaking about the video, Collette Cooper says : “The video really captures the spirit of the song. I love Eddie’s eye for detail, his work is incredible, and I love Sadie’s vision and ideas. I really like the comedy injection, too, which is very me. They make a great team.”
Collette Cooper is a singer & songwriter currently working on her debut album entitled ‘City of Sin’ and has produced several music videos. Collette performs in London and has performed at several fashion, charity and awards shows, including Samuel L. Jackson’s ‘One For the Boys’ karaoke benefit in collaboration with GQ on 25 September, 2014, and ‘The Gang Show’ at the Groucho Club on 4 October, 2014, in support of the Teenage Cancer Trust. Collette is also an actor and has worked in theater and film with the likes of Jane Campion, Michael Winterbottom and Samantha Morton.
All in all, the video for ‘Lost Soul’ is as entertaining as it is pleasing to the eye, made by a team with a clear understanding of each other’s artistic nuances. The result is a captivating piece of work – the proof is in the viewing!
