Motion Design for RTL II "Hotzspotz"

RTL II title sequence

The TV program Hotzspotz on RTL II, a commercial, privately owned, general-interest German television channel, introduced international commercials to a broader audience.
I shot the scenes for the title sequence on Hi8 video at home, including intense use of my bathtub and the tpyeface of that decade: Template Gothic.

Motion Design for Sat.1 "Alarm"

Sat.1 title sequence

TV producer Ulrich Meyer hired me to produce the opening credits for his crime show Alarm on Sat.1, a privately owned German television broadcasting station. In his office he had a huge painting that he wanted me to reproduce and bring "to live" in the title sequence. It was an interesting challenge on my first job as a freelancer.

A collaboration with my water brotherHendrik John.
Music by Jan St. Werner.

On air design for the launch of a new national TV channel

For almost two years I was employed as creative director VOX TV, a German television channel, headquartered in Cologne. Together with the sound director Jan St. Werner I was hired for the concept and production of the on air design for the launch of this new national TV channel. In collaboration with dozens of international designers and composers we produced the audiovisual packaging of more than 25 formats. The video here shows a short compilation.

RTL Television

On air promotion for a Russ Meyer special

After graduating from university I worked for three years (1989-1992) as art director at RTL Television, Germany's largest private free-to-air broadcaster. One of my last projects was this trailer for the screening of several Russ Meyer movies. Ulli Schumacher and I caem up with the idea and we produced it together. Ulli also introduced me to Arno Steffen.
