I have just been informed, that the music and sound design by Frank Schreiber for my promotional short AP Plus one price at the Jerry Goldsmith festival in Cordoba.
Perhaps I should start sending the film itself to film festivals, so the film might win something, too. There is a link to the website of the festival, which features a portrait of Frank and the clip.
Some more drawings from my journey to Italy two and half weeks ago….
One of the problems with keeping this blog updated is, that I can´t really show the stuff I am working on. So this is what my desk at the moment looks like. You will able to buy the book these raw material are for in spring….
And I made a new coloured version of one of the Festival dell Oriente drawings, see below:
I have spent the last week in Italy. I spent a lot of time sketching, basically because my guitar had to stay at home. I will post some of the more conventional motifs later(picturesque hillside towns, bustling Italian street life and so on). These are sketchbook drawings from the Festival dell´Oriente. We went there because a friend of mine is keen on finding exotic music, I had to somehow spend the time so I started drawing people. The whole thing is a mixture between a bazaar where you can buy everything from incense sticks, Nepalese art to Apulian cheese, lots of martial arts and exotic performances, like belly dancing. The whole thing has slightly trashy but entertaining vibe. There are a lot of gems to befound, but the more esoteric part is just not my cup of tea. I drew the dancers waiting for their appearance, basically because they kept comparatively still (I had tried to draw some of the kick boxing fights before, but they proved too fast for me). I concentrated mainly on one dancer, who stood out, basically because she seemed to utterly enjoy herself, from time to time performing small bits. I have only seen small parts of their performance, because I had to leave but they were really good. It seems like they were the Halfa dancers or Shakti Dancers from Rome, but I am not completely. sure. There is a stray squirrel, which is a character design for an upcoming book of mine, that was on the page before. Italy is great. I only wish I could speak Italian… More to come.
This is stuff for a new portrait photography gallery. I am still in the process of choosing which photographs to use. Thanks a lot to the models, who all were really great.
If you´re in Cologne and need some one who takes portrait pictures, contact me.
These are some drawings from my last visit to Würzburg, to see my old friend Martin Armbruster (http://herrarmbruster.de/). The drawings were done on the the spot, with the execption of the girl which I revised at home. For some reason the drawings look much better in a sketchbook.
Moodboards for Game Show
These are some moodboards I did for Shine Entertainment one or two years ago. I think one of these game show wasn´t made, but it would have been the German adaption of an American show that has run for a while. The other one was called “Don´t drop the Money”. I don´t watch that much television myself, so I am not sure which broadcaster showed it (I guess it was RTL). By the way a very pleasant cooperation.
I only recently got the permission to show this. I don´t do this kind of work too often, but it is a nice change.
Portfolio Children´s books Derek Roczen 2014
This was something just for the portfolio.
Theses are some old drawings from a failed project for a feature film friends of mine tried to make. This was just brainstorming. It was a film about Noah´s Arch, and some conflicts between the animals…. By the way I added a new life drawing category for my blog….
