"Spieglein an der Wand" - A music video by the students of B.A. Creative Industries Management

The music video for the song “Spieglein an der Wand” by Max Piano, student B.A. Music Production, is a collaborative effort of a group of B.A. Creative Industries Management students who took the module “Film” in summer term 2018.

After they were approached by the artist, they created a compelling concept, secured funding from the university and proceeded to take the project through all the stages of a film production, all the while learning about the craft of filmmaking, the dynamics on a film set and the responsibilities associated with their respective crew positions. Throughout the process, they were supported and mentored by the module’s instructor, Christoph Heller, a seasoned film professional. Most of the crew was made up of B.A. Creative Industries Management students, the Director of Photography (Kun Liang) and the Editor (Pavle Mihajlovski) are experienced film professionals who were brought in from outside the school to ensure the quality of the final product.

At its core, this music video is a collaboration between Max Piano and Clara Rothländer, both hdpk Music Production students, and the B.A. Creative Industries Management study programme.
