In summer 2014 I got the chance to work with the great Udo Jürgens. He wanted me to create a concert opening animation for his upcoming „Mitten im Leben“-Tour in fall 2014.

We first met in June in Zürich for kicking off the project. And I have to say: „What a great guy, what a gentle and honorable man!!“ He was so interested in being part of the creative work - that was amazing. A man at that age with a moderate knowledge about 3D animation.
He also came up with the idea, visualizing all that places all over the world he has been visited and became something very special in his exciting life. Summarizing it was an exciting project, and I am very grateful that I had the chance to get to know him and to work with him.

The video is from his very last concert in Zürich on December 7th, 2014. 2 weeks later Udo Jürgens died of a heart attack at the age of 80.

Many thanks to Frank Kaminski, who came up with this project.

I created this opening sequence for a friend, who took part of a competition for a science series called "Videologic". With my little help he won the competition. Congrats, Simon.

»Heiter bis tödlich« is a crime series in german television that doesn't take itself seriously at all. So was the production - a lot of fun!

In 2012 Schönheitsfarm launched a monthly client movie event in the cinemaxX theatre Hamburg-Dammtor. It was called "FARM FEATURE". We created an individual opening sequence for every event. The characters are based on a little puzzle, we did before for our clients as well. They had to find 40 movies that were hidden in the picture. How about your movie freakness? ;-)
