In spring 2009 I graduated from German high-school and of course I took my camera with me. I filmed the days of examination and the A level party and produced a movie. During the party I used the camera crane which resulted in really awesome pictures :-).
Something interesting about the background story of the film’s creation: Our first A level party was canceled due to a school shooting menace (which would later turn out as having been a hoax) and was replaced by a storming of the school by the police. According to a police officer the balloons of our decoration caused serious problems to the police special force – spontaneously bursting balloons were responsible for one or more adrenaline rushes and they had to destroy a serious number of them to access the teachers’ lounge.
Fortunately we were able to postpone the party and had it two days later, after the building was thoroughly checked. The student who had announced the shooting only because she wanted a day off, was identified.
