This video project presents the life of a very amiable clown named Valentin at the Station Circus. Once you cross the gates to the circus, it feels as if time just stopped for a moment. Next to the busy everyday life of the city is a place where everyone seems calm and free. Valentin’s life appears so different on a first glance, but if we look closer it is exactly what we all seek for – peace. The goal was to create a video portrait showing Valentin’s unique character including his individual space, thoughts, feelings and his happy nature. We especially wanted to transmit Valentin’s passion for the circus, his very open minded thoughts as well as his happy and peaceful way of living.
