The animated image film for Internationaler Bund (IB), one of the big German charities. This was a cooperation with the International Festival of Animated Film Stuttgart. The concept was initially developed in a workshop I gave at the 2016 festival with IB employees. I tried to put all the ideas together, made the designs and the storyboards and did most of the animation:
Direction, animation and design: Derek Roczen
Additional Animation: Jennifer Heil
Music and Sound Design Dorothea Bohr and Geo Schaller
Thanks to the ITFS….
Stills from the IB Film. A film I did for Internationaler Bund, a German Welfare organization. The premiere will be tomorrow at 18:00 at the Großer Schlossplatz in Stuttgart.
A little bit of the animated film for IB (Internationaler Bund) I have been working on. Will premier at the Trickfilmfestival Stuttgart.
Here some Storyboards I did for Tradewind Pictures in Cologne. The film premiered two weeks ago. The brunt of the Storyboards were done by my friend Albert Radl , because at some point the they thought I had moved abroad. Hard Luck… It was big fun working on this. There is a third part in the making, but I have too much work doing illustrations for books at the moment, so I declined.
I hope it does well at the box office. The film is really nice.
At the moment im working on the updates of my by now 4 year old project for the parliament of Baden Württemberg
Like always I can´t show the biggest project I am working on…..
The film I did for Kölner Flüchtlingsrat and an alliance of Cologne based film producers is now finished and will have its premier on the
Thursday, 09.06.16,19 h im Museum für verwandte Kunst
(don´t confuse it with the Museum für Angewandte Kunst if you want to come). It was a pretty complicated project because it is pretty complicated subject. It is basically meant to help Asylum seekers understand the whole process. I will post a link to the website where you can watch it as soon as it is finished.I did the design, the storyboard, animatic and most of the animation. The style is very simple.
Thanks a lot to the people who helped me and the people who did the real hard work by organizing all this.
Bye, bye Bargeld
The Animations I did for “Bye,bye Bargeld” a documentary by Michael Wech can be viewed in the 3 Sat Mediathek now:
It is a very interesting film about the end of money in cash ( the language is German…).
These are very early sketches for a film for ProAsyl we are working on. Looks completly different now.
Designs I did for Raketenfilm/ Kuveyt Turk Bank. Pretty hard job to design Turkish characters which Turkish immigrants might like….. I also did three 30 second test anmimations. The first picture became the design that was used. At least two films were made using my drawings but I have no idea what became of this project.
