24 September 2011 - Shooting of the title sequence – Goerlitzer Park 24.09.2011 - Sun, Chilis and Beer  - that sounds like a great day in the park- And it was! We got a good collection of fresh Jalapenos, Habaneros and Bhut Jolokia from the Pfefferhaus in Berlin and it was really great that you all showed up. It’s just amazing to see how many people actually are willing to experience the really hot stuff.  There were tears, laughs, funny body movements and all different kinds of emotions – which will make an amazing title sequence.
