about the production

special working method


„The special working method of wtp international allows focusing on the creative process. I develop the script, make the directing of the actors on set. Mira Gittner is responsible for the pictures and the editing. After the last shooting day Mira shuts herself away in her editing studio and doesn’t leave until the work is done. I see the film once the rough cut is ready. This division of responsibilities has been proved with six feature films and will continue for the next films.”

(Roland Reber)

 

Teamwork – literally speaking.

 

ANGELS WITH DIRTY WINGS is the result of teamwork. At the beginning of the shootings there was only a title and the idea of three women who drive through the countryside with their motorbikes. From then on everything came up in an organical way. During the ongoing shootings the story was developed. Director and author Roland Reber then wrote some scenes, which were shot in the next days. There was no improvisation. In that way, bit-by-bit, the film was made. Everyone could bring in his creativity and ideas.

This working method, to see filmmaking as a creative adventure, is typical for Roland Reber and the wtp team. With a small team and a multiple distribution of tasks within the ensemble an artwork is created to which everyone involved has a creative relation.

Roland Reber is not only the director but also author and co-producer, besides playing the part of LUCY, Antje Nikola Mönning also produced, Marina Anna Eich played the role of GABRIELA and also took over the organization of the production and is responsible for the distribution, the public relation and sales of the film. Mira Gittner played the role of MICHAELA and was responsible for the cinematography and the editing. This approach leaves much space for spontaneous ideas during the shooting period. That is how the biker scene was included. During the shootings for a commercial the film team met a biker who organized a group of Harley riders for the next day. During the break between the driving scenes one of the bikers explained to Mira Gittner something about her motorbike and others were talking about the media society. Roland Reber had the spontaneous idea to make a scene out of this, which was immediately realized.

 

 

at the set – on the road

"angels with dirty wings" was shot at original sites. For the driving scenes at times the equipment was simply packed and the team drove along stopping to shoot at appropriate places.

As some dialogue scenes should be shot on the road, as a symbol for a way, it was a lucky coincidence that the circuitous road near Landsberg was almost completed, but not yet opened for public use. The responsible department gave the shooting permission and so the team only had to avoid some trucks of the road workers or some bike riders that had already discovered the road for them.

Wtp international film production already used the surrounding of Landsberg for their films several times. Perhaps meanwhile it is out of habit, but it is mainly because the public authorities of the city and county are very cooperative.
