HELENE FISCHER – MOMENTE DOCUMENTARY
What a summer! Our team (Camera: Patrick Protz, Sound: Dennis Groß, Director: Sven Haeusler) spent 7 weeks in the Stadiums of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The result is the 60 Minutes Dokumentary “Helene Fischer – Momente – Hinter den Kulissen der Stadion-Tournee” that sets a monument to the tour with 850.ooo visitors. Close to 4 million viewers watched the film on TV, furthermore it is out on DVD and Bluray.
REVOLVERHELD – MTV UNPLUGGED
Following our first MTV UNPLUGGED with Udo Lindenberg here is our second one: MTV UNPLUGGED with REVOLVERHELD: a show in 3 parts, an individual stage design for each part and a “growing” Band. With the guests Annett Louisan, Rea Garvey, Das Bo, Mark Forster, Johannes Oerding, Marta Jandova und Heinz Strunk. Beneath the band´s well known smash hits and great arrangements the harmonious lighting, the usage of high-end (digital) filmcameras and an extensive postproduction make this concert visually a unique and outstanding production.

CICERO SINGS SINATRA
A great voice, Big Band sound and beautiful songs. You can´t ask for anything more to have a wonderful evening. With CICERO SINGS SINATRA, Roger Cicero and his Big Band perform songs of Frank Sinatra, supported by the guests Yvonne Catterfeld, Sasha and Xavier Naidoo. Produced by the NDR (Norddeutscher Rundfunk) and Kimmig Entertainment, svenson suite was rsponsible for direction (Sven Haeusler) and the postproduction. the result (TV, CD, DVD, Bluray) is as entertaining as high-class.
HELENE FISCHER – FARBENSPIEL LIVE – STADIUM TOURNEE 2015
Commissioned by Kimmig Entertainment, Sven Haeusler directed the shooting at the Berliner Olympiastadion. On two nights with an audience of about 60.000 people the show was recorded with 30 cameras. 17 musicians, 12 dancers, 250 Teammmembers, an extraordinary artist and a thunderstorm made this production a memorable happening for all participants. We guess that the (about) 4 million viewers and the CD/DVD/Bluray buyers think the same…
The Production won the ECHO 2016
THE BOSS HOSS – UNDER THEIR SKIN
Our Director Sven Haeusler dived into the deep hole of Rock´n´Roll-crazyness of the band THE BOSS HOSS. For V8 Filmproduktion he created a Tour-Documentary that proves once again: there´s nothing better than a good portion of LOUDNESS!
BAR-TALK WITH MARKUS KAVKA
TALK! That is what FREUNDE FÜR`S LEBEN (Friends For Life, www.frnd.de), a non-commercial association for the prevention of suicide, recommend. We developed and produced an online-sequel for them and it is (a wonder): about talking. In 4 categories MARKUS KAVKA talks in an open and honest way with his guests NINA GNÄDIG, SIMONE HANSELMANN, OLIVER KOLETZKI and BOSSE. It´s sometimes funny, sometimes sad, sometimes hurting, sometimes silly, but foremost: always important.
For the “Dachverband der Gemeindepsychiatrie” we developed and produced this wonderful documentary about people who are or were in psychological treatment. We show great respect for the work of our team Martin Jabs & Patrick Protz and for the courage of the portraited persons.
ROGER CICERO – DU BIST MEIN SOMMER
Summer! Pool! Video-Clip! This song asked for joy, movement and sun. So we ordere these three things in the internet and just filme it – done!
MARTIN GALLOP – MISSING TRAINS
We had the great pleasure to run after trains, busses, cabs and beautiful women with Martin in the capital of Bulgaria, Sofia.
Is there something more wonderful?!
Yes: to carry nothing with us except our iPhones.
OLIVER KALKOFE – NICHTGEDANKEN
Lectures of a different kind. We accompanied Oliver Kalkofe to the famous Hotel Adlon, to assist him with his trips into the world of non-thoughts.
The sequel was nominated for GRIMME PREIS 2014.
A dream came true! svenson suite developed, directed and produced this 6-episode documentary for the german public broadcaster ZDFkultur with the guest-Bands CocoRosie, Little Dragon, Boy, Dillon, Tu Fawning and The Asteroids Galaxy Tour. For each episode we invited one Band to the broadcasting house of the former German Democratic Republic in Berlin’s Nalepastraße. World-famous for their brilliant acoustics, the recording studios at Nalepastraße draw appreciation from pop musicians and classical conductors alike. AUFNAHMEZUSTAND takes a journey back to the beginnings of recording, when bands stood side by side in the studio to record their music. The worn carpet may be brought along from the rehearsal room, instrument cases may be left standing about, everyone is to feel comfortable and play their music the way they always wanted. Or maybe even the way this special place inspires them to. In a very intimate atmosphere without any glaring show lights, AUFNAHMEZUSTAND takes a stunning look behind the scenes. There is a god and it is called MUSIC!
The sequel won the GERMAN CAMERA AWARD 2013.
UDO LINDENBERG: MTV UNPLUGGED
Working for one of Germany’s most famous and renowned artists AND doing one of the world’s best-known TV music shows at the same time is not only a big honor but also a challenge. We at svenson suite LOVE challenges! Most of 2011 we spent developing, creating, directing and producing the MTV Unplugged live from the Hotel Atlantic with Udo Lindenberg. That included an opulent set-design, guest-appearances of about 25 musicians (Jan Delay, Stefan Raab, Inga Humpe, Clueso, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, etc.), five sections of interlude movies and a 30-minute Making Of. We are quite happy about the result and so seem to be the far over one million buyers of the finished product (CD, DVD, Bluray, Downloads). The production is awarded with the ECHO 2012 (best music-DVD national), triple Platinum, the Video Champion Music Award (best music-DVD) and has been nominated for the KRESS Award 2012.
iseevoices.com is a non-commercial online-interview-magazine by svenson suite. Each interviewed person speaks about one single specific topic. By collecting individual definitions of “big” terms like “Anger”, Erotic”, “Luck” and “Violence”, we try to find out more about the speaker’s personality as well as about our own. The visual settings of the interviews follow a photographic aesthetic and build a bridge to the content. One more thing: iseevoices is in black & white. Always. Almost. More at www.iseevoices.com
PETER FOX & COLD STEEL LIVE DVD
svenson suite had the pleasure to develop, produce and direct the live DVD of Peter Fox (member of Seeed), Germany’s most successful artist of the year 2009/2010. It seemed appropriate to us to catch the rough energy of the performance with six analogue 16 mm cameras (and another 17 digital cameras).
Being kind of bored by the classic “strictly live” DVDs, we integrated documentary parts into the concert film, following die-hard fans as well as members of the band through the day.
The production is awarded with triple Platinum.
