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….

Yesterday was the premier of Asyl in Deutschland. For which I did the design, direction and most of animation (thanks to Kerstin Unger, Thea Seidler., Meike Teichmann and Daniel Ossio and Fade to Grey). There were lots of people involved, most of them working for free, most notably Philipp Stendebach of Augenschein Film Production whose baby this really was. I am very happy with the result. The film is intended to help asylum seekers to understand the most important part of the whole procedure the personal interview and how to prepare for it. There are versions in 14 different languages.
I guess this is Serbian:
There is a lot of work being done with spreading the news arround. by the way although the whole project was pretty delicate (because of the topic) this was absolutly brilliant because of the enthusiasm and spirit of the people involved.

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

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.
