    My bachelor graduation project „New York Biotopes“ deals with abstract plants and creatures, which change their forms because of insufficient living space and adapt themselves to the surroundings of the metropolis New York City. A type of metamorphosis, where the newly developed vegetation assimilates elements of the city and makes them useful for their own purposes. These creatures and plants, partly mechanical, partly organically in appearance, spread more and more over the city and fill it up with life. My idea was to create a film, that fills up the metropolis New York with vegetation, that adapts to the straightness of the technology and the given situation. This happens through the assimilation of structures and forms. These biotopes are shaped by the existing living environment, but in turn also shape the newly developed living environment by their presence. In other words, a symbiotically coexistence begins.

      Finding your way can mean losing your mind in the process… An isolated elderly woman, in desperate need of stimulation, conjures an infestation of silk-spinning caterpillars, thus leading her to a mind-bending epiphany. ‘Caterpillar’ is a cerebral drama, filmed in the historical Wynkoop House, famous for housing George Washington. The crew consists of highly esteemed artists working across a wide spectrum of disciplines. This includes special effects artist, Ben Bornstein (300, The Fighter), visual effects artist Greg Silverman (Black Swan), and editor, Corey Bayes (Birdman, The Knick, Contagion). From storyline through production, Caterpillar is an ode to the creative process. This film is a must-see for anyone who has ever submitted to their imagination and felt transformed by an idea.

        A short abstract movie dealing with nature and maritime creatures, metamorphosis and transformation – it connects art and science. Strong emphasis on sound, related to the idea of visual music. The Style is soft but clean, focussing on black & white. I studied media design at University of Applied Sciences in Mainz and this is my diploma thesis – it´s not the official musicvideo. Modeling & Animation: Cinema 4d Compositing: After Effects Editing: Final Cut Sound: Apparat »Warm Signal« taken from the Album Duplex (Label: Shitkatapult) http://www.silkesieler.de Featured on Stash 78 http://www.stashmedia.tv/archive/stash78.php Interview on get addicted to… http://www.getaddictedto.com/silke-sieler-motion-graphics-artist/

          We dug through the darkest recesses of our minds and studio to create original music and sound design for this Buck masterpiece. Working with squirming, analog-tape leeches, moaning coeds, screaming guitar goats, and brain-exploding psychedelia, we were certainly in our element. Plus, it's always fun to rock out and get a little weird for a good cause! Good Books, an online bookseller, passes all of its profits through to Oxfam. Our hats go off to Buck and String Theory. Enjoy the trip! Client: Good Books Agency: String Theory Director: Buck Music & Sound Design: Antfood DISCLAIMER: What you will see is an entirely fictional and completely unendorsed representation. [Though we humbly suggest Hunter S. Thompson might have liked it.] We are devoted fans paying homage. No disrespect is intended.

                Synopsis: There is no formula for creative process. It is fluid and transient, allowing singular thoughts to merge and evolve in unexpected ways. The Experiment conveys the evolution of an idea in the form of an organism. Backstory: A few weeks back a few of us stumbled upon the "see whats possible" challenge for adobe and decided it would be a fun chance to work on a project together. The guidelines were to create a compelling 15 second animation under the "see whats possible" theme using adobe products. Process: The animation is a culmination of stop motion, live elements shot on HD Cam, and animated still images we shot on a light table. All elements were doctored and composited in Photoshop and After Effects. Credits are as follows: The Action Cats at GSP Design: Lisa Mishima Animation: Chris Kelly, Mike Landry, Colin Trenter Sound design: Shannon Botts Producer: Nick Brown
