To do:
Secure models for photo shoot.

Walk big star’s makeup artist’s assistant’s dog.
Snag invitation to tonight’s hot party downtown.
I’m Kira Parker, total fashion junkie. I thought I had it made when I landed a summer internship at Skirt, the preeminent fashion magazine. Ha. Don’t get me wrong—working at Skirt, and spending the summer in New York City without my parents, is amazing. But now I’m up against Daphne Hughes, daughter of the magazine’s owner. She’s already got the guy of my dreams and all the right connections. Now she thinks she’ll get the plum position working for the editor in chief without even lifting a diamond-adorned pinky? This catwalk is primed for battle.

Durain fruit in Cambodia

Durain fruit in Cambodia
The Durian Experience.

It is difficult to for a day to go by in Singapore without some reference on the "King of Fruit" the Durian. Indigenous to Southeast Asia, the durian has been known to western civilizations for only the past 600 years. Here in Singapore the Duran has a mystique that is a bit larger than life. There are reminders everywhere in this town about this fruit. On the subway there are signs about it, the opera house is nicknamed after it, and of course the pungent smell of the durian catches your attention at least once per day. The pervasive nature of this fruit has created a bit of a love hate relationship with many Singaporeans but overall the population here is addicted to the paradoxical nature of this strange produce.

The durian is named after the Malay word for "sharp" due to the hard spiky husk which I’m sure allowed the durian to be use as a mace in medieval times. The durian is green to yellow-brown in color and is oblong to round in. sharp The weight of the durian is anywhere from 1 to 5 lbs. and the size ranges from that of a cantaloupe to the larger fruit the size of a basketball. There are about 100 varieties of durian which has led to a connoisseurship of sorts complete with a rating system based on the region the fruit was grown and the look and smell of the produce. The average cost of a durian is about $2-$5 with some of the more regal fruit (rated D24) going for as much as $50. Of course the most distinguishing feature of this crop is its pungent odor. I found a written description on the internet comparing the smell of durian to "a combination of pig-shit, turpentine and a rotten onion all stuffed together in an old gym sock". Which actually is pretty close to the truth.

The smell is a bit overpowering and it lingers like an over perfumed lady at High Tea. I have mentioned before, there are fines for carrying durian on the subways ($500). There are many hotels that will not allow you to bring it indoors and I have personally witnessed someone getting kicked off a bus attempting to smuggle some durian in his backpack. The odor is so persistent you can pick out someone on the street who has eaten any in the past few hours. With this all said, I had to try some. Linda alerted me I was on my own for my durian adventure since she wanted nothing to do with it and this type of excursion was a good excuse for her not to be too close to me for the next three days. As you can imagine eating during is a bit of a production. One does not just run down to the local supermarket or 7-11 to buy some. Durian is purchased through the street vendors. These vendors set up shop in the outdoor stalls on the street corners.

The durian arrives daily from Malaysia in trucks loaded with fruit baskets. The trucks arrive in Singapore around 3:00pm in the afternoon so durian on you eggs for breakfast is not going to happen. The best place in Singapore to purchase durian is in the Gaylang district. The Gaylang is a blue collar suburb known for its eclectic mix of Chinese restaurants, Buddhist temples, and its red light districts. In Gaylang the brothels and temples can share the same parking lot and apparently co-exist in harmony which bring us some philosophical musings that are too complex to include into today’s journal entry. Anyway, with camera in hand and an empty stomach I was off to taste durian. As soon as I emerged from the above ground subway at the Al Junaid stop I could smell the bitter-sweet sent of the durian in the air. "This must be the place" I thought. Indeed, by the time I got down to the street level the smell of durian was semisweet and strong. I spied a durian vendor a block away. The vendor had wood slats set up to display the fruit. Around the stand were plastic tables and chairs with a score of people eating durian with their hands in an animated fashion. The durian vendors love to go shirtless and have a happy Willy Wonka affect for their trade. For a lot of them I guess this is a second job. As a Mazungi with a camera staring at the stall, one of the vendors guessed my destiny. He directed me to a small outdoor sink to wash my hands and then sat me down at a plastic table. A group of girls was next to me devouring a durian fruit with their gooey fingers and sweaty skin after a hard days work in this equatorial climate. I passed on the $12 durian as well as the 3 for $10 bunch and settled for a conservative $5 piece of fruit. The vendor took a small machete and cut a pod of durian off for me. The durian meat is concealed in 4-5 septa of the fruit. The meat is yellow to beige in color and is crescent in shape. The inside of the durian reminded me of a spleen or kidney I’ve seen while on a surgical rotation in Internship. (sorry)

Eating durian is bizarre. The meat is covered by a paper thin skin that is easily broken. Inside this skin is a rich yellow custard surrounding three hard brown pits t

Bob Taylor had his internship following Producer Kristine Knudsen on the shoot of the feature film REINE GESCHMACKSACHE.

What do I do? Kristine Knudsen describes her job

I am a filmproducer based in Berlin. This summer I had the great chance of shooting the first selfproduced feature film.

A filmproducer is resposible for the financing, planning and execution of a filmproject. As the person responsible for the development and/or choice of sujets and scripts, for the aquisition of the necessary financial means, putting together the organising, the artistic and technical team and doing the marketingplans and distribution strategy, the producer makes decisions fundamental for the success or failure of a movie.

My interest for films started growing in my homecountry Norway. Being curious on another country I decided to study Filmproducing in Germany- at the Filmakademie Baden- Wurttemberg in Ludwigsburg. During the 4 years- study we learned filmmaking the real way – learning by doing. On no-budget & lowbudget experimenting with other filmmakers, learning to tell stories in pictures and sound.

The strange thing about filmmaking is the long periods where one develops and finances a project. It takes only few persons but loads of time, normally between 1-3 years.
And then, within the 2 months of preparation and most drastically the 5 weeks of shooting a whole circus is on the road. An uncontrollable mass of artist, technicians and helpers who by some wonder work harmonically towards one goal.

Our first film has the working title REINE GESCHMACKSACHE, translates PURELY A MATTER OF TASTE.
It is a lowbudget feature film of ca 100min.
45 persons im team, 5 main actores, 20 smalles roles,
It is shot on ca 13.000 meter S- 16 mm Kodak filmmaterial, in 25 days on ca 35 locations.

Facts about the Film

The Team:
Producers: Kristine Knudsen & Boris Michalski, Director: Ingo Rasper, Screenplay: Tom Streuber & Ingo Rasper, Director of Photography (DOP): Marc Achenbach, Editor: Patricia Rommel, Music: Martina Eisenreich, Production Design: Christian Strang, Costume Design: Bettina Marx.

The Principal Cast:
Edgar Selge, Florian Bartholomaei, Franziska Walser, Roman Knizka, Traute Hoess.

The Story:
First-time feature director and co-author Ingo Rasper hits the road with Reine Geschmackssache (translation: Purely A Matter Of Taste), a buddy comedy about a father and son who are no longer able to avoid each other and really get into trouble.

This is the story of Wolfgang, an `old school? sales agent, who sells clothing to `Best Ager?-boutiques, catering for women aged thirty-five and above. When he loses his driving licence he commandeers his son, Karsten, to drive him around the province with a car loaded with next year’s fashions.

What nobody except Wolfgang knows, is that he’s both bankrupt and under threat from a younger and increasingly successful rival. What nobody knows is that Karsten is not only desperate to leave the family home and party in Spain, but he also has a very big secret of his own. Things come, as they must, to a head.

INTERVIEW – what Bob wanted to know about Kristine Knudsen and her professional life

– Why are you the best ? If you are?

Because I love my job. When I have a mission and a vision, it gives me energy to push the project a little bit further every day.

Being a filmproducer is like being a big fat mama for a audiovisual project. Embracing the vision, planting ideas, help them grow and finally let them go – into the world, to the audience.

I truly enjoy my profession when a project is financed. Only problem is it takes so long for a filmproject to be ready for shooting.
Most problems that then arrive are solvable, either through persuation and motivation or compromises. When the train is rolling there is no way to stop it, just to do the maximun possible with the means one have.

Im am good at being a producer because I am a generalist. I know something about many areas, but let other people do the specialization.
It is my job to keep the overview and stay true to the underlying vision.
Combined with a strong attitude of knowing what I want and a gut feeling. Often it is hard to make so many decitions, and one must trust the own instincts.

– What is your special spirit ? if you have one?
Being positive and believing that everyone is the architect of ones on fortune.

– What drives you professionally ? if you are?

Curiousity.
On life, on people, on film handcraft and film form.

Search.
Film can be a treasure search in human nature, there are no borders for what stories to tell. The own imagination is the only limit.
An out-of daily routine searching for cast and locations for a film.
Being on the search for something makes one sensible for the environment, makes one see more than in daily routine.
Sometimes life is more exiting than fiction. Letting fict
