1. According to the script and applied in the cutting room, the film began exactly as the original novel by Sven Regener. In broad daylight we see a strangely staggering man lock a door behind him and then have an encounter with a stray dog. What works in the novel, causes problems here. The audience doesn’t know that Mr. Lehmann had just spent a night behind the bar of his drinking establishment. My suggestion was to use the title sequence with loud music at the beginning of the movie to depict the previous night’s events. A completely choreographed scene, resolved in approximately 750 shots (with photographer Joachim Gern, who later shot the poster as well) was the permutation that I finally decided upon. As we were shooting on the set, we projected onto certain details, with the help of a slide projector, previously developed slides showing single title plates

  2. A considerable development in the work of Mädchen, Mädchen 1. The whole thing had to have a bit more “glamour”, since the girls had now become older

  3. A pure fantasy of dancing light that I animated over many long hours to the beat of the music from the Sugarbabes. When everything was done, it turned out that we couldn’t get the rights to the music. I’m going to show here the original version with the Sugarbabes anyway

  4. For Motion picture Production company Chestnut Films, located in Berlin and Munich, Germany I was asked to create an animated version of their existing logo. I wanted to visualize a steam punk world of this adolescent young man, a world filled with toys, that would later turn out to be just sparks on his iris.

  5. This was my first assignment for an opening sequence for a major motion picture. The entire sequence was 3D animated to the song “showbusiness”, which was the only parameter provided by director Helmut Dietl. Of course I thought of big names on a big canvas flickering in Las Vegas style. The real challenge was to execute the entire project on a brand-new 1999 apple laptop. due to my schedule I knew I was going to be on the road, so I convinced the line producer to pay for the computer gear in advance. I remember burning the final highrez sequence onto I don't know how many CDs because I did not have a hard disc that would contain the amount of data....
