Skinlines - directed and produced by the crazy monkeymen int. directors crew. We´ve all gone totaly bananas…

"…Most of our DNA code has no profound biological function. Therefore a world which hasn’t yet been fully decoded slumbers quietly under our human skin. SKINLINES crosses that thin line between an inner perception and an outer world, and shows a human caught in a metamorphosis immersed in the light refracted through a fine prism…"

THE TREASURE - was the Saudi Arabian presentation made for the 2010 Expo in Shanghai China. I had a chance to work as a creative producer very close with the Director and the Art Direction during the making of the huge project. I was involved in the first Edits and Moods as well as the early Concept and final post production.

”..In this Video Saudi Arabia presents itself as a ship’s hull resting on columns with its surface forming an oasis surrounded by palm trees. The visitors inside stand on a conveyor belt that slowly transports them into the main room. It glides around the room and onto a bridge over the 1,600 m2 concave projection surface that encompasses the entire floor…”

"…The spectators find themselves in the midst of a sea of continually changing pictures and sounds. An overwhelming poetic homage to this country and its people that displays both the beauty and pride of Saudi Arabia as well as its strength and striving for innovation…"

Prologue: 
"…Based on an old Myth the gods once deemed, that greedy and selfish people should be reborn as pigeons, so that they might become more devotional. But some of these dovepeople didn‘t want to resign to the fact of being "rats of the air" until eternity and be forgotten. They searched for someone who might take them out of there own misery. Uprising from the dirt they gathered to find a way out of their fate…"

 BETTER CITY -  BETTER LIFE - EXPO2010 Shanghai

For the Expo2010 in Shanghai (China) I had the chance to work for m box and Marc Tamschick from Tamschick Media & Space on the Stategrid Expo Pavillon2010 as a creative producer. Together with Sara Meloni (V4 computational design), Daniel Huber (V4 framework development and computational design) and Andreas N. Fischer (design/animation). I was involved in the dramaturgy and post production throughout the whole project. The Idea was to create a pumping heart of energy which is located in the center of the expo area. The Screen in the middle cube was surrounded by LED lines which enclose the entire building complex with power-charged grid lines. StateGrid is Chinas biggest energy company and provided energy to the whole Expo2010.

MERCEDES BENZ - GENEVA MOTORSHOW 2011

The two new models, the C-Class Coupé and the SLK were presented on a rotating platform. Two LED HD screens were positioned on opposing sides of the platform and as the emphasis varied from car to car, so the corresponding clip and lighting scenario varied accordingly. Presenters on the main stage introduced the models and were accompanied by interactive video clips. The clips showed material from the pre-recorded ‘Innovationtour’, which was filmed by Veith Michel during a test drive by Patrice Bouédibéla and Eva Nidecker. Test Film not only showed the two Cars and there Drives in Action but also Interviews of Mercedes workers that were directly involved in the development of the cars.

A talk show set was situated on the stage’s reverse side, where daily ‘Trendtalks’ with innovators from diverse fields of expertise took place.
Additionally, ambient films that demonstrated the main features of the models and emphasising the talks were shown on the two LED screens. They took the form of graphic animations and edited short films.

IN THE EYE OF A DANCER EVERY LOCATION, EVERY SPOT IN AN URBAN LANDSCAPE HAS ITS OWN CHARM AND HAS THE POTENTIAL TO PERFORM AND CONTRIBUTE MOVING ART TO AN AUDIENCE. CONTEMPORARY DANCE IS INCREASINGLY BRANCHING OUT INTO THIS URBAN LANDSCAPE. IN THIS CLIP, THE CAMERA’S VIEWFINDER BECOMES THE P.O.V. OF A DANCER AND NOT ONLY SINGLES OUT POTENTIAL LOCATIONS BUT ALSO BECOMES A TOOL OF RHYTHM ITSELF AND SUCCOMBS TO THE FASCINATION OF MOVEMENT.
