VFF INSTITUTE MARENOSTRUM e.V. - BIOGRAPHY
|1951 - 1995
|Since our NPO
Institute´s foundation in 1951 a number of experimental
short films have been produced, with topics focussing exclusively on
extraordianry forces of nature , e.g. snow -storms in the mountains and
the astonishing depths and primitive energy of volcanoes..
Unfortunately, during a fire in 1964 many of these old materials were destroyed. Some pieces of 8 mm and 16 mm films are currently under repair work in our cinema laboratory.
1994 the scientific work was restarted with a
long-term programme focussing on
creating a specific film-makers team with comprehensive technical
including underwater filming in the Mediterranean Sea as well as in the
|1996 - 2016||
1996 an important scientific study
was carried out.
The sudden death of the project leader, an elder marine captain , caused the interruption of the programme for 20 years as no qualified new head of project for this ambitious programme has been found.
In 2007 preparatory work for creating a new team made of students started. Initial research and development work was carried out for the scope of building remote controlled air filming devices ( Quadcopters / Hexacopters ) . The systems with MTOW max. 12,5 Kg were assembled in our Institute for the only purpose of video recording in high definition 4K under difficult meteorological conditions.
In 2008 preparatory work for a documentary film focussing on an environmental problem was started. It regards the destruction of nature and landscape in the so-called “Terra dei Fuochi “ (Fields of Fire) in Southern Italy where huge amounts of waste are burnt completely out of control everywhere in the countryside.
aim was to put light on a shameful situation and to provide a
stimulus to possible technical solutions to
The Film Production Department of our Institute is under direct control of the Directing Board and entirely financed by the NPO Institute itself.
