Glazed Finish "It started with a smile"



A hyperkinetic, restless promo shot on greenscreen utilizing 6 cameras and relying on a morph-and expression driven virtual camera to achive otherwise imposible hyperdynamic camera movement.

If this feels too fast, shaky or blurry to you - I´m sorry, it´s just kind of a fun experiment :)

See some behind the scenes stuff here

ghost of a chance "things worth asking"

After doing a few music videos lately, i´ve been looking for new ways to challenge myself. While in the past I could always count on the help of a few buddies for shooting and took my sweet time with postproduction, I´ve decided to break this habit and shoot a video all by myself and try to have it edited, color-graded and released all within 24 hours.




Despite all advances in technology, doing this well (and not half-assed) still represents a huge challenge. While the video itself is not breaking any new ground, it´s a nice mood-piece fitting the song perfectly. Thanks to Tobias Heiland of GHOST OF A CHANCE, a great guy and fabolous artist. Check out his current album "AND MILES TO GO BEFORE I SLEEP"  - A fitting title, looking back at the last 24 hours. Good night all.

TSY - Jelly, Jelly, How to survive such a trip?


My soundtrack video for a movie that does not exist. Borrowing from well established action- and spy movie clichés, this is my humble homage to +100 Mio.$ Hollywood action films.

Update:
So far, the response to the video has been incredible: Apart from being all over music television, the clip has inspired glowing reviews on leading industry websites like promonews and videostatic, as well as getting recognition from all over the world. It has won competitons, and has been the featured video on giant online music video portals like blank.tv and tape.tv.
As a side-effect, I´ve been drowning in a whole lot of requests from well known music video agents/reps offering me representation in the US, the UK and Japan. But for now, I´m happy at my dayjob, where we´ve got some incredible cool stuff coming up. And my next music video is already well underway.
Buckle up, I´m just getting started...

teasing "seelengezeiten"

One guy and 3500 floating glass-spheres.

This one now has about 10 times the number of VFX-Shots as the first Jurrasic Park film -  and I´m just one single guy working on it. For a few hours a week. So stop asking. Really soon now, I promise.

With over 60 VFX-Shots, this one will take a while to complete. Then again, color-correction will be rather quick... See some more pics from the shoot over at music video insomnia
