Great project where i was responsible for Previz-Modeling/Animation, additional rigging like secondary-controls for facials & body and animated the first 2 shots and all the rest from the pancakes-shot till the end. The other shots were done by Nadja Klews. Directed by Hans-Christoph Schultheiss. Thank you Sehsucht! YOU ROCK!

a very short nonsense which took me way too long to finish it. the rigs are provided by animation mentor and i did the animation, yeti-fur-setup and with the HUGE help of my buddy Lukas rendered it out in VRay. hope you like it. it was fun!!!!

Very nice project i had the chance to participate. I did the 3D-design of the avatar, the rigging (custom rig with mocap-ability + various pipeline-scripts) and ofcourse the funpart: almost all of the character-animations! Thank you guys (especially Seb) for the great job!

2012 is DONE! and it was a super awesome year for me. Finished work for 2 short-films, 1 feature movie and a lot of great and challenging small side-projects. 2013 will be a "pirate year" for me cos we are moving back to Hamburg and i am hardly working on my "Pirate Snotbeard"-script. In the meantime a old friend and one of my main favorite character-designers Michaela Wagner was doing some quick inspirationals and concepts. Especially Cpt Ma'am came out fantastic and i want to say "THANK YOU Michi! YOU ROCK!" again.

A belated birthday present to myself ... a real TRANSFORMER YAY!!! I found this model and core-rig on creative crash and did ALOT of model-adjustments and added a completely new car-& biped-rig. Thanks to Sunjie for this amazing work he shared! The shots are kind of polished but there are still alot of bumps and jurks and there is still a long way to go for calling it "final". Anyways ... i hope you gonna have as much fun as i had doin this! TURN ON SOUND!

unbelievable ... my "Dirty Olli" shortfilm i'd been started 5 years ago, then realized that i'm way too slow and not skilled enough will be now produced. i've finished animation already and sound/music are being composed right now by a good friend of mine (tekky-music).
watch my old "nasty teaser" in the meantime ...

YAY!!! These are the first official renderings of "FlatFrog" a 6 min tv-pilot where i supervised animation, modeled and rigged all characters. It was such a great project and i had the pleasure having Dana Boadway (Animation-Mentor), Rodrigo Huerta (Dreamworks-animator) and Jonas Manke (awesome German anim-pro-buddy delyxe) in my team. Margherita Premuroso was directing, Luca da Rios was producing and William Lorenzetti did those amazing renderings. Can't wait to see and show the final!!!!

Oh boy ... it's been ages that i have posted something. But i was too busy with life. So sorry for this but look at this shortfilm i worked on with and met Margherita Promuroso. She's an incredible artist and even more such a great person that it was a pure pleaure the whole way down the road till finishing this baby. We are aware of the fact that we could have polished and pushed things even more but that's what you get out of such small projects "experience"! Anyways ... i translated the 2D-design into 3D, rigged the character, animated the first half till he rests on top of the tree and the end when he jumps back into the cave (my good buddy Emanuel Amler was doin the rest). Have fun watching!

there we go with the "final" ... really quick and dirty rendered and alot of things i could tweak forever. i'm still not satisfied with leading the eye by the individual actions. too busy overall. but i had learned alot from it ... anyways ... thanks so much for all the critique and comments!!!

That's my current very short film. All the pigeons, the set-buildings and props (except the car and the man-character, which are one of my designs and rigs) are designed, modeled and rigged by Adrian Walt and Ringo Klapschinsky (some of my former students) Great job and thank you very much for permission to use them. I have animated the shot in 8 weeks and finished the whole short in 12 weeks. What a run but it was so much fun!
It's a test-render-scene for my current project "Dirty Olli". This shot is part of a teaser-trailer. Design. modeling, rigging, animation and rendering are done by me.
It's been done in 3 days as a test-animation for more subtle acting. For this i've used the AnimationMentor-rig Bishop.
