IB Trailer

Animation, Uncategorized

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….

Asyl in Deutschland- Die Anhörung

comic, film, illustration, Uncategorized

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.
