We made this little music video for artiste extraordinaire Hans Unstern. Its was a day of fun road trip shooting in and around Berlin (my mom’s tailor shop is even visible for a brief moment) and some days of cutting, drawing and compositing. Easy peasy. I do like it alot.
I hope everybody will enjoy this killer app that we developed with our team of hardend code monkeys. Several governments and hidden agenda players are very interested.
This beta release is dedicated to our own Coco the Third. You will always be remembered.
About a year ago I started training Brasilian Jiu Jitsu and I really fell in love with it. I love the sport, the comradery and the competition. But due to a work related injury I couldn’t train for almost two months now and many of my evenings i spend not in the gym, sad and lonely. How cool would it be if I could play BJJ on my XBOX though to complement my “youtube training”, like I can do with MMA or Boxing games? BJJ is not only a niche sport, it is also pretty complicated. So I took the liberty to design a controller that reflects that.
Or in my case this controller would suffice I guess.
I don’t know why you should but if you cared, you could be following me on instagram. If you could, I don’t know if you should. Like, whatever!
I like this video produced by bitteschön.tv. Old friends of Roland’s skater clique asked him to make a video for the skater brand Element with the brief “do whatever you want. and please put something with skating and recycling and nature in it.” Normally, this kind of brief is a trap that seasoned professionals step into not to often. But they kept their word and let us do our work. They got a beautiful dreamy animation with a mezmerizing soundtrack for it.
This film is what I worked on for the better part of last year as Senior Animator. Director Ari Folman is a genius and Super Animation Supervisor Yoni Goodman was a pleasure to work with. My studio bitteschön.tv was the smallest studio involved in this international production but a lot of our scenes got into the trailer. I am very proud of our work and super excited to see this film!
Going trough my sketchbooks that I filled in Asia I realized that only in HongKong I did these tiny framed drawings. Must have something to do with the way the city is build, compact, dense and crowded. Funny thing is, this design decision I must have made totally unconciously. At least I don’t remember thinking: “Ah, Hongkong is so dense, let’s make little frames in my little sketchbook to make it even more so.” As if the scarcity of room in HongKong made me think, I’d better not waste any space on my paper.
