Winter doesn’t necessarily mean sitting at home and freezing, it can also mean having a lot of fun outside. No matter if you prefer snow or ice, skiing, skating or snowboarding – give your slats and skates a ride! And never mind if your sporty talents are not really Olympic, strolling around in the white landscape is a lot better than freezing at home as well!
People came to leave flowers and candles outside the South African Embassy in Washington D.C. on Thursday night, following the death of Nelson Mandela. While the Embassy’s staff are currently working elsewhere, while renovations take place, a statue of South Africa’s first democratically elected president forms a focal point for tributes.
It’s not a really rewarding task to write a blog post about New York. Where to start, where to end? This megapolis offers so much fascination, diversity, variety and adventures – impossible to write about all this in just a few words. Better let the most populous city in the United States speak for itself – enjoy our Cineflex aerials!
Oh yes, this video material is pretty new. Who says that a stock footage collection doesn’t keep up with the times? As soon as the construction work on the One World Trade Center will be finished, our filmmakers will be there again. And maybe we will write a blog post about that, let’s see…
One my first political memories at the age of 8 years relates to John F. Kennedy. Berlin and Dallas 1963. A heroe that died and remained a legend. Forever young. We want to pay tribute to President John F. Kennedy with this video made from our archive.
With the comet ISON passing the Earth shortly after Christmas Eve, we can look forward to seeing a real “Christmas star” this year. The comet was discovered in September 2012 and will be visible to the naked eye at night from December until mid January 2014. On December 26 and 27, the comet will be closest to the Earth – so the best chances to see it are over the Christmas holidays.
We have several animations tracking the orbit of ISON; we selected one from our collection of computer animations for you. Here you can see the way of the comet through our solar system – to be better prepared for the spectacle in reality. Keep your eyes open so you don’t miss it!
On 14 November 1938 – shortly after the pogroms organized by the Nazi party the night of 9 November – the German authorities ban Jewish children to attend the schools. Our short film shows at the beginning previously unreleased film material of Berlin and Jewish students of a Berlin high school, which have been filmed in 1937 by the American film director Julien Bryan. In the thirties and especially before and after the Olympics of 1936, the Nazi regime is trying to show metropolitan normality to the outside world.
On the evening of 8th November 1923 Hitlers Nazi Party staged a coup in the Munich beer hall “Bürgerbräukeller” against the Bavarian government and the German Republic. The putsch was inspired by Benito Mussolini‘s March on Rome, from 22 to 29 October, 1922. Hitler and his associates planned to use Munich as a base for a march of armed insurgents on Berlin to bring down democracy in Germany. In this aim he did agree with influential leaders of the Bavarian government like Gustav von Kahr. In the Bürgerbräukeller Hitler could win von Kahr and others to support his actions. But the coup leaders had not reckoned with the determined resistance of the Deputy Prime Minister of Bavaria Franz Matt of the Bavarian People’s Party. During the night Matt is able to bring loyal military and police units in position.
Just recently we wrote about the “renovations” in our content library. We enhanced our storage capacities quite extensively to be ready for new material and, especially, the 4K revolution. After all, the benefits of 4K are obvious: unprecedented levels of resolution and contrast and, ultimately, a much more dynamic, engaging and immersive entertainment experience. So why go for just good material, when you can have the best at Framepool.com? 50.000+ shots are already available in 4K, with a lot more to come each day…
Currently we are working behind the scenes, to make it as easy as possible for you to directly search, find and order our 4K content. Admittedly, most of the work is really fun – the great quality of the content lets us dream of impressive cities and wonderful landscapes, animals under water and in the wild, nice people and great extreme sports adventures. The biggest difficulty is to remain seated…
Solar eclipses are not really common events – it doesn’t happen so often that the moon overshadows the sun… Long time ago, these sudden astronomical phenomenons caused fear and anxiety. Nowadays the planetary orbits can be predicted very precisely – so the solar eclipse on November 3rd, commencing at exactly 10:04:34 Universal Time, shouldn’t be a surprise for anybody. But Europeans must hurry up now if they want to join the spectacle: It begins at the East Coast at sunrise as partial eclipse and continues in direction of the Atlantic Ocean. Totality will be reached shortly before the African continent and last for 1 minute and 40 seconds – until the year 3264 (!) none of the future hybrid solar eclipses will exceed this maximum.
What a shame that the weather forecast is not really ideal to watch the solar eclipse from the mainland: The yearly monsoon season in Gabon, Kongo and Uganda rarely allows a clear look to the sky.
The game hits full stride with cheerleaders waving pom-poms’, a lineman smearing war paint as the stadium lights glare on a formation of twenty-two men swapping yards.
The center snaps the ball and It’s a push to the end zone. It’s a run game as the offense grinds down the defense and the yards down field.
The strategy shifts. The quarterback drops back and drills a receiver in the open with a long pass. He guns for a few before he’s brought down inside the opponent’s one.
The clock ticks down.
The real estate get tighter, the yards have become inches. The offense huddles as the defensive front line lumbers toward the scrimmage line, drops to four and digs in.
The offense breaks and meets the defense mask to mask. The quarterback hollers an audible and his team responds by splitting and contracting.
The count is long.
The ball is snapped and handed off, tucked and protected by the back as he leaps over the linemen and rolls into the end zone.
