tv-professionals at work

Four very competent men from Bavarian Television occupied my garden all day today. They are working on a feature about WP and his work. It will only be a ten-minute movie. But as far as I could tell this will be by far the most sophisticated one that I have ever participated in or seen on the subject of bonsai.
We'll see in the first week of October. It will be announced properly so that we can all see it. Among many things the most spectacular shooting today was the one about the mystic spruce that appears from the mist.

This will be the opening. Proper music. Starting with a mountain scene, a tree appears from the mist, it is a very old spruce, the mist disappears, the spruce is in bright sunshine and looks very ancient. And then WP appears and it becomes clear that this is not a real mountain scene but an illusion. Bonsai is an illusion and now we discover it. I think this will be something.

Looks cool, I hope someone will be kind enough to add English subtitles!

Hi all,

I am very interested on this video, and I think most people outside Germany is also willing to see it.

Is there anyone in Bavaria which can grab up the video and publish the digital clip? I think there are no copyright problems at all if it is a public broadcant.

Thanks in advance

Congrats Walter!

Hey, you should have asked them to add some bug spray to that fogger so you could have used the time effectively ;)
