I recently started producing two videocasts. For those who wonder what the heck that might be: Videocasting is the process of filming and releasing a series of videos on the internet. â€“ Just like TV without its limitations of time and format.
I did some old school [sic!] animations and title design for a documentary called Â»Meine Federtasche ist im WestenÂ« (Â»My pencil case is in the westÂ«) back in late 2009. It’s about a primary school role play on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Wall.
While working on an opening for a videocast I was playing around with audio spectrums and expressions. On the way I made these four tiny sketches. Neither of the approaches made it into the final piece, but I thought I might show them here anyways.
Rearranging my several backup harddrives I stumbled upon some folders that contained a portfolio DVD of mine which I made in 2007 mostly with the intention to help me getting enrolled at Central Saint Martins. The DVD fulfilled it’s purpose and got forgotten afterwards until now.
The trailer Buchstabenschubser produced last summer for the DEFA foundation is nominated for the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany 2010 (Designpreis Deutschland). The 2 minutes long 35mm clip already won the 2nd Design Award 2008 of the Federal State of Brandenburg.
While I’m working in my first year with the Vietnam pop maps on something non-digitalÂ I was kind of missing motion design a bit. The research on information design and map making led me to these two short animations. The above one is a representation of a structure of cohesive mountains in the Swiss Alps [...]
‘Ichisichisichisich’ is a music video that was produced by Sir ja sir in cooperation with comic artist Christopher “Piwi” Tauber for a competition of the German rap formation Die Fantastischen Vier. Their song of the same name was the second single of their 2007 album ‘Fornika’. Our submission reached the last 20 contestants.
In a reproductive world men and machines own a native faultiness. These immanent faulty designs separate the particular partner in the overall system, the human-machine universe. ‘26/20 (SOL Where is it?)’ visualises the isolation and the loss of power in an unlocatable space of faultiness. Thereby the consequence of an error, the accident, is excluded, [...]
‘It covers the hillside’ was meant to be a live visualisation for the Texan folk rockers Midlake. Unfortunately they never used it on stage. The basis of the kaleidoscopic film are about a dozen Creative Commons movies of the Prelinger Archive.

Both micro movies ‘Freedom Fighter’ and ‘Break the hood’ are a Sir ja sir production. ‘Freedom Fighter’ is about a hero who saves the world in an unconventional way. In the second clip, ‘Break the Hood’, break dancers are taking over the city. ‘Break the hood’ won the first price at the 2007 O2 Mobile [...]
‘Panzer’ was the practical part of my BA dissertation in European Media Studies. It is a music video for a song of the same name of the Mediengruppe Telekommander. The theoretical component was an inventory control of music videos entitled “Machine guns in the picture stream – music videos and the war”. ‘Panzer’ montages hundreds [...]
