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.
