R.Z.K.: We're underway with shooting here in the Marquardt Castle near Potsdam.

C.S.: Well, it's fall, and since this morning, it's also been raining buckets.

O.R.: At 8 it starts up for us. The crew, of course, has been here since much earlier, and most likely we'll be shooting here till 2am tonight.

J.H.: Before I had the chance to work more intensively with Rammstein, I was in no way a fan!

I thought it was all dumb! And when I had the chance to read the texts for the first time, I thought: that is poetry!

(Cut from different Rammstein’s videos on screen).

J.H.: Actually I've become a Rammstein fan over the years now. And so, to shoot a Rammstein video is something totally special for me!

P.H.L.: For “Haifisch”, we had lots of ideas, and then we thought: well, of course!

O.R.: It is just a beautiful song, and that's why we chose it.

(Photos with Rammstein on screen).

C.F.L.: I get a bit of this workers' song-feeling, a bit of that Brecht-feeling, so to speak (laugh). It is just such a simple workers' song, where one still says what one's thinking in simple words.

R.Z.K.: The text is relatively positive in that sense: we're all six roaming through the world,

and we're together and one. We wanted somehow in principle to do the opposite of that.

C.S.: The song is really about how we can't make it work without one another; that the band only exists with the six of us, and it's strong because of that; that we support and look out for each other and are only as strong as the weakest link.

C.F.L.: The funny thing is how we play the opposite of that in the film...

P.H.L.: That we're not happy with one another and that we think each other's stupid, and don't stick together...

C.F.L.: ...which in reality is once again the negation of that. I find that totally cool.

(Video “Haifisch” on screen).


S.S: (On shooting stage) Clean your mouth off, Flake!


R.Z.K.: Rammstein's strength lies, I think, more in the area of telling stories. To make videos, where we have the possibility of bringing the song to another level.

C.S.: For me it's important, when we're shooting a video, that we're not shooting a film apart, somehow running beside the music; rather, that it's approaching some unity with the music, and effectively forwarding the song.

J.H.: Frequently the band has already had a strong influence on me through their music, which offers an unbelievably rich breeding ground for images. Actually for any piece, for any Rammstein song I could make a wonderful video. Alas, that's not the case! But for “Haifisch” it was actually clear pretty soon what I wanted to do.

(Video “Haifisch” on screen).

C.S.: As far as I know, the story starts so that we're at a funeral carrying Till to the grave; at a pretty classical Mafia burial in black, with good types in the background and a good car and so forth.

R.Z.K.: Basically the story is that our singer has died and we're all suspicious of one another... sort of Agatha Christie: anyone could have done it. Everyone has a reason. And then Jorn takes a peep into the old videos and so he basically runs through the history of Rammstein videos, looking for where one could perhaps see a small clue that one of us had killed Till.

C.F.L.: To that extent the videos acquire a truth, a new one. And as well a new meaning and the songs too get a new meaning. And at the end it's clear that the video itself isn't authentic, that the old video that we had shot was the true one. And that's brilliant! I find that totally great!

(Video “Haifisch” on screen).

S.S: (On shooting stage) And say good-bye to him!

(Video “Haifisch” on screen).

S.S: (On shooting stage) And cut, finished, thank you! Very nice. Super cool!

R.Z.K.: One has to have a bit of imagination, I think, to understand this video...

O.R.: ...but how it all works outs, I myself will be surprised about that!


(Video “Haifisch” on screen).

P.H.L.: How was it to stand in the rain... it was awesome (laugh)! Was the question dumb?

Or did it just seem that way to me? I'm just feeling a little giggly. Yes, how is it to stand for hours in the rain? It is a dream! So, personally, I don't find rain bad.

J.H.: The guys are totally motivated, they're into it!

J.H.: (On shooting stage) Now we're going into the close-ups. But the set-up remains the same. Can you still do it?

C.F.L.: (On shooting stage) No, but ...

J.H.: (On shooting stage) Then let's take a short break first, but before that we can also ...

C.F.L.: (On shooting stage) No, no, let's quickly do it!

C.F.L.: No, I totally like rain! Because I was born in November and so I'm some sort of amphibian.

O.R.: But I didn't think that the coffin would be so heavy.

C.F.L.: It was so heavy (laugh), that I was astonished at how weak I've become and then it rained there so and the mood there was so, like it had to be! If such a burial, then please such weather as well!

R.Z.K.: The problem is somehow always that one gets cold mostly at the feet, and there's a sort of foot-warmer, and when the feet are warm, then everything else is warm. And then besides there's a woman here, she's got such jugs, you're simply gobsmacked. I mean, then everything's warm. You just have to take a look: I mean, she's just so self-assured. I think she knows just what she's got. And, I mean, that is, what, a jaw-dropper (laugh)!

O.R.: At the end it always comes down again to the same thing, that this feeling of youth is there, and it was hard to keep a straight face, because you've actually got this perpetual grin on your face, because you've actually grown up with this playful roughhousing.

C.F.L.: Acting is an exaggeration, I'm a sort of extra. Basically, we do some idiot-acting: Hunh, where is he? There? So it's got as much to do with acting as soccer.

(Shooting scene with fight).

S.S: (On shooting stage) Straight up! Hit it!

Pull Flake in!

Punch! Yes, super! Go at him! Everybody's lying on the ground!

J.H.: (On shooting stage) I come closer with the camera, you pound each other up here in the foreground.

P.H.L.: (On shooting stage) Then we stand up again or do we stay down?

J.H.: (On shooting stage) Yes, try to give me something so that you also flip around. Try to play that for the camera a bit.

P.H.L.: (On shooting stage) Ok, let's try it!

J.H.: (On shooting stage) Fall on him! Richard, fling yourself on him!

Very nice! Roll a bit. That's good!

Christopher, shake more!

Very good!

Show the background. Nice! Cut! Wonderful! Finished! Very good, thank you!

(Everybody is laughs).

Doctor, also well done!

C.F.L.: (On shooting stage) Yes, that is quite exhausting. Am out of breath!

R.Z.K.: Always, whenever we play these bad boys, somehow it suits us, and it's something you can really play up.

C.S.: It's not that we're getting some load off our chests, or things that one couldn't quite verbalize, or weren't clear between the band members. Instead, it's simply that you feel like a little kid again, and you run round in the grass and roll over, and it's a beautiful feeling.

R.Z.K.: Especially between guitarists there's always a quite personal phenomenon, and a particular emotion, and there have certainly been moments where we wanted to unleash this physical violence, but we have somehow always managed to keep it together through communication.

S.S.: (On shooting stage) Straight out! Cut! The same again.

J.H.: (On shooting stage) You moved too quickly.

P.H.L.: (On shooting stage) Yea, I saw it coming.

J.H.: (On shooting stage) Just like that, thanks! Super cool! Looks super. Next!

R.Z.K.: But I mean, it is obviously not really true, even if you just do it as though, the same emotion doesn't really come out. So, you just play it.

P.H.L.: I would have gladly torn apart Richard's shirt, so that the buttons were flying off, something like that I would have gladly done.

R.Z.K.: Well, the brawling was quite cool and a lot of fun!

(Shooting scene with fight).

(Video “Haifisch” on screen).

J.H.: (On shooting stage) You look good!

P.H.L.: (On shooting stage) Yes!

J.H.: I know the guys pretty well in the meantime, so I know who they really are, and I can also move them with that, which I then use in shooting.

O.R.: We like filming with Jorn, because we have esteem for him as a person and director, and it's not just a known quantity for us, but he's also become good friend over time, where you both speak the same language, and so there's a sense of trust.

C.F.L.: Jorn can explain and play out things very well. So he brings you right into the mood. He says: so, heads up, you are totally sad now, well, that's a stupid example: Till is dead, and you're

looking like this and say: Shit, it's all lost, how do we go on from here. And he explains it well to me, so that I can do it as well.


J.H.: (On shooting stage) (Talks C.F.L.) Try to show us! Pull the lid a bit to the side!

It's empty and now look up towards the camera! And look down again! And look up! Look straight up towards us! Excellent! Thanks!

S.S.: (On shooting stage) Cut!

(Almost everybody is applause).

J.H.: (On shooting stage) Super, just awesome! Really awesome!

R.Z.K.: He has an eye for detail. He is really in love with details.

J.H.: Yes, I generally like it in films, equally here in video, when you discover things in the corners, things you only discover the third time. So I try to let something happen in the background a bit, too.

(Video “Haifisch” on screen).

J.H.: (On shooting stage) Horror in the background! Laughter in front!

(Shooting. Fighting two women).

W. 1: (On shooting stage) Stupid cow! Frigid bitch!

W. 2 (On shooting stage) Frigid bitch!

Well, now it's on!

J.H.: (On shooting stage) Thanks! Cut!

(Almost everybody is applause).

J.H.: You've got to try to hit all tastes a bit. And I especially want to hit Rammstein fans. I want to offer the Rammstein fans something, we just want to take the Rammstein audience to a different level than with a live performance, I want to give them something to take with them. I think the band wants the same.

(Shooting final scene).
