This piece compares two utterly different ways of making yoghurt.
The two segments are called "The great journey of a tiny yoghurt" and
"The tiny journey of a great yoghurt" to make the differences even more obvious.
It was an assignment for the video class at the Fachhochschule Schwäbisch Hall
and its film festival Formula Mundi.
This was an assignment at the FHSH. I analysed the original on set lighting and
copied it with cheap equipment. The rest was digital paint work.
That's a fun little Photoshop work I put together at my internship in Bremen,
The picture on the left was shot from inside my office and is unedited.
This is one of numerous old pictures which I scanned, restored and animated
for a documentary about a famous Varieté in Bremen.
I created this shot rather quickly to demonstrate the power of the warp tools
included in packages like After Effects. World class matte artist Dylan Cole was
responsible for shots in Lord of the Rings: The Return of The King and used
exactly this method to animate the layers of ashes and dust above Mordor's
Mount Doom. I used Trapcode Particular and various other techniques to
add even more realism to the piece.
This is a still out of a animation experiment. I used
instances in Maya to render an almost unlimited amount of white cubes.
This is a digital set extension and matte painting for a short film I was working on at
KCAI. For this scene I had to make two perspectives.
This is an airship which I created in Maya at KCAI.
A young boy named Steve is mourning his grandfathers death. Right before the
burial Steve coincidentally finds an old wooden chest containing an antique
camera obscura. Obscura is a 2d animation movie featuring detailed
backgrounds, effects and a score supporting the grief and the
hope the movie delivers to the viewer.
The picture was produced in July 2006 at The German Film School. It was
graded 1.0. My responsibilities included drawing inbetweens, cleaning, scanning,
colouring and the Making-of documentation.
This is the intro I made for an Internet tv show called Oxymoron TV. Besides the
post production I was responsible for storyboarding
and on- set fx supervision.

The Sonnenhof is an safe heaven for disabled people, both adults and kids. Every
year they have days of the open door. At the FHSH every student was asked to
make three posters. The idea behind this poster was that when someone
(represented by the orange bars) needs help, Sonnenhof's social net (a hammock)
will prevent them from falling.
That's some kind of a storyboard. It features two cgi characters composited into
a real world. It's a funny, short picture about the synergy of friendship.
Leitz gave me this image and asked me to improve it. Let's mouseover to see
that barely anything was left untouched!
This is the logo of the 10th anniversary of Leitz in China. If you mouseover
the picture you can see another version for smaller applications.
Note that my responsibility was to design the right side only. The banner
on the left is the official Leitz logo for China and wasn't altered.
In the Leitz marketing department I was given this photo and a drill made from a golden alloy.
They asked me to adapt the look of this material to the photo.
Mouseover to see the result. So that's a product photo of a product that
didn't even exist at that time.
This is the Cavilam in the beautiful French city of Vichy. I stayed there a couple of
times to improve my French.
That's a photo I shot in Dresden, Germany. I took three photos with different
exposures and composited them together into one single hdr picture.
This is a photo I took in Salzburg, Austria.
I like the way the buildings are layered and silhouhetted, disapearing in the haze and fog.
