Commercial work

I did some old school [sic!] animations and title design for a documentary called »Meine Federtasche ist im Westen« (»My pencil case is in the west«) 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.
One morning when the pupils arrived at school they got seperated at the entrance to the building into easterners and westerners. Soon after their school building itself was divided by a wall that subsisted for a week until the boys and girls, being fed up with the separation, demolished it alltogether. The premiere was November 10th at the Babylon Cinema in Berlin in the presence of the kids.

Another commercial piece I was working on was produced together with the design studio Buchstabenschubser. It’s an interview short entitled »Was ist Energie?« (»What’s energy?«). The 3:37 minutes long clip explores the origin of our energy and is looking for a definition including kid’s explanations up to bulletproof scienctific statements. Watch it at Buchstabenschubser’s website.
Here’s the opening sequence I did for the school documentary:
