FLYING REVOLUTION

DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE UPRISING OF GERMAN BREAKDANCE CREW 'THE FLYING STEPS'

CONCEPT

How did THE FLYING STEPS make it from the streets of Berlin to performing on the biggest stages in the world? After two sold out world tours and over twenty years of experience FLYING REVOLUTION shows the astonishing success story of FLYING STEPS which is not only about breakdancing but above all tells a story about dreams and the associated power to realize them. THE FLYING STEPS are not only the most successful break dancers but primarily Berliners with a clear message:

'Believe in your dreams and never give up your goals.'

Originally we planned the title sequence around the idea of visually breaking out of the concrete jungle of Berlin right onto the big stages of the world. In addition to this we worked us through dozens upon dozens of gigabytes of found footage: VHS, polaroids, newspaper articles, mobile recordings - you name it. The visual packaging was built around those historic documents and made sure the audience could grasp a glance of the international glory and positive idealism that surrounds THE FLYING STEPS. For the final version of the title sequence we kept the core concept but changed the overall look and feel because it fit the story structure a little better. We still like the original version as well - which is why I am presenting it here.

It was a fun project and especially the Berlin premiere in front of hundreds of breakdance heads, family and friends of THE FLYING STEPS was an experience that will never be forgotten. Respect and a special shoutout to Steve Won wo trusted me on this one.
