Konzerthaus Berlin: Sleigh Ride
3B Produktion
Illustration, Animation


Seasons Greetings from Konzerthaus Berlin in a rotoscoped animation video.  
The video consists of around 1000 individual hand-painted images on paper. The shot material with the brass instruments served as a reference for the rotoscopy. Felt-tip pens, colored pencils, watercolor paint, acrylic paint and ink were mainly used. The foreground and background were painted separately and then digitally reassembled. Link

As part of Adobes "The World is your Canvas" campaign, we created two videos introducing two dynamic tutorial pieces showcasing the creativity and the unique workflow of fashion collage artist Chantal Caduff and illustrator duo Gilles and Cecilie.
I co-directed and composited these videos and animated the illustrations and tutorials. It was great fun working together closely with such inspiring artists. Link

Apple TV+ Suspicion
Apple / Territory Studios
Screen graphics, Motion graphics, UI Animation


The constant surveillance of the suspects played a major role in Apple TVs Drama/Thriller Series „Suspicion“. So a large part of working on this for Territory Studios was designing and creating assets for the many screens in the control center and on police devices.
Interfaces, data streams and many different looks for numerous surveillance streams ranging from CCTV over bodycams to drones and satellite feeds had to be created and animated. Link
