Film History or should we say ‘digital’ history? In 2003 Rudolf directed the world’s first fully digital film ‘Indoor Fireworks’ on a prototype of Thomson’s Viper camera, a technology used in 2004 by Michael Mann on ‘Collateral’ and later by David Fincher on ‘Zodiac’. The Viper could be considered a forerunner of the RED and ALEXA, now common technologies. ‘Indoor Fireworks’ produced by technology whizz Hans Van Helden was shot, archived, posted and projected digitally to ovation at the ‘Netherlands Film Festival’ as well as festivals including Los Angeles International, Rebelfest Toronto, Morbegno, I-DIFF, New Orleans, New York and was picked up for distribution by Canal + Another Historic first… Rudolf had to wait 9 years for another world first. His sophomore feature ‘WHERE THE ROAD RUNS OUT’, the first feature film ever to shoot in Equatorial Guinea, West Africa, won the Best Film Award at the San Diego Film Festival, Best Director and Actor at the Sunscreen Film Festival and also screened at AFI Silver, Heartland, Alhambra Theatre Festival, the Pan African Film Festival, The Durban International Film Festival and Helsinki African Film Festival. The Film also had a limited theatrical run in Arizona USA.
