November featured two major highlights: Nico rechristened the plenary hall in Brussels as "Strasbourg," so the parliament can just go there every month instead of traveling to France. Also a new team member was added to film and edit videos, and purchases were made to provide her with all the supplies needed to fulfill Nico's major campaign promise - bring the European people content they may actually want to watch.
|29/11/2019||Postage for registered mail|
So that a USB stick filled with video files arrives safely at the production company. Aka we tried to buy certainty and trust from the post.
|28/11/2019||Annual fee - web hosting|
We did this just for you: We want to protect you from the ugly and user-unfriendly website of the EP in case you want to learn something about Nico's work.
Part of an attempt to walk around the European Parliament more anonymously - didn't work. (We'll also use it in a video.)
|21/11/2019||Framing for the greenscreen|
Because of the basic laws of physics.
|20/11/2019||Film equipment: tripods, bag, batteries and LEDs|
So that the only thing low-quality about our videos will be Nico's hosting skills.
Prop for one of our videos - but Nico and his rabbit also love to play with it during their lunch break.
Also a prop for a video - and a reminder of where we came from. #nicofromtheblock #sadreminder
|20/11/2019||Hard drives, USB sticks and cables|
We lose so often, but we won't lose our data.
To mark camera positions. (And sometimes when Nico has an outside appointment, he uses it to find his way back to the office without getting lost.)
Pure courtesy: We had a guest who is a journalist and he seemed hungry. Is this corruption?
Nico was in "Der Spiegel" ("Schluss mit lustig" 09/11/2019)
|11/11/2019||Lunch for three: pheasant, salmon, entrecôte in the Members' Restaurant of the Parliament (wasn't good - not recommended)|
"Europa was geht" - Youtube-Show with Hazel Brugger & Thomas Spitzer
On the occasion of renaming the plenary hall in Brussels as Strasbourg.
|08/11/2019||Plush rabbit and painting materials|
Emotional support - PETA wouldn't let us buy a real rabbit. Nico also started painting therapy. With the painting materials we also created the Strasbourg sign for the plenary hall.
To create another world which is less mean and more funny than the real one - at least in our videos.
|07/11/2019||Account maintenance fee|
Monthly protection money.
|06/11/2019||2 theatre glass bottles|
To christen the plenary hall in Brussels as Strasbourg.
|05/11/2019||Office equipment: Flipchart frame, pencils, folders, envelopes, USB-Sticks, document shredder, kettle|
We are trying to work here - for real!
Sometimes we sketch important things, sometimes we are just in the mood to act as if we were CIA-agents and doodle around.
|05/11/2019||Flipchart with extendable arms|
The team often draws faces on it so someone hugs Nico out of their free will.
