Moving on from the subject of wheat, the series “Was wo wie wächst” from German TV-station SWR now shines a light on potatoes for educational TV “Planet Schule”. Director Susanne Decker accompanies this important crop plant on its way from sapling through to harvesting and shows us the various possibilities of how to use and process potatoes in farming, as foodstuff and for industrial purposes.

The various slow motion and fast motion sequences, as well as the computer-generated imagery again demand a multifaceted sound design, supporting the pictures to take full effect.

The film score also has multiple facets in terms of different styles, corresponding to the different story-lines. This time the broad range takes us from Funk to Nu-Metal to Crossover and Electro-House, right up to an orchestral film score.
