We have just been filming the first multinational ping pong/clubbing event Pongress Berlin. What an incredible place. Highlights of the trip included being allowed to film at the extraordinary Jewish Memorial, finding ourselves in a packed metro train in the early hours of the morning surrounded by zombies (it was Halloween!) and celebrating some lovely news about two of the stars of our documentary. When we we arrived at our main filming venue the first thing we saw was a one of a kind ping pong table. See Ping Pong for further details. If only we could have brought it home...
