ABOUT

what I do

I’ve been working in the film business for some time now, started as an editor and story board artist for corporate films and commercials. Then I became a writer for television and worked at a film studio in Frankfurt. In 2001 I went more and more into visual effects, motion graphics and 3D animation.

Today as a writer I develop concepts for complex corporate films for international companies. I directed projects for television, and worked on several motion picture and television shows as a visual effect supervisor.

Together with several artists from all departments as well as other production- and effect studios we work in close and successful collaboration. Together we are able to handle projects in all forms and sizes for film, tv, big presentations, amusement park attraction, real live action or animation, high definition formats, stereoscopic or VR, inside the European Union or across the Atlantic, you name it.

Raiders of the lost Locomotive is a large scale documentary for German television. It's about a lost locomotive that fell into the River Rhine from a boat during transportation in 1850. A team of hobby archaeologist and scientists has dedicated their lives to find this lost locomotive. I contributed the reenactment scenes to this docu-series. I storyboarded and directed these scenes, all in front of a green screen. The scenes were supposed to have a special Old-Hollywood look, that looks like simple painted backgrounds and backlight-projection. In order to achieve this we worked mainly with practical models instead of CGI. Digital backgrounds were made at the SWR graphic department. I supervised the VFX work and conducted the keying and tracking process for nearly 40 minutes of VFX shots.

The Observation is a film starring Ken Duken, Volker Zack Michalowski and Matthias Paul which  I produced in directed in 2010. It was well received at several festivals in Germany, India and the US. It was nominated "Best World Short" at the Little Rock Film Festival. See the whole film on Vimeo
