Stowaway | Coming Soon

In the beginning of 2020 I worked as Compositing Lead at rise fx Cologne. Together with our colleagues from Munich we worked on a variety of shots for the upcoming Science Fiction movie Stowaway directed by Joe Penna. Check out this interesting article about the productions of the film:

„Conceived and shot before the coronavirus outbreak, the sci-fi thriller starring Anna Kendrick, Toni Collette, Shamier Anderson and Daniel Dae Kim resonates with the post-pandemic world. „

Babylon Berlin S3 | VFX Breakdown

RISE just released a great VFX breakdown of Babylon Berlin season 3. I was working as a lead compositor on the show for about 5 months.

„It’s always nice to work with friends – like when we returned to the swinging world of Babylon Berlin for Season 3, led by our VFX supervisor Erik Schneider. As building a single set representing all of Berlin is impossible, lots of set extensions needed to be built following the architecture of the pre-WWII era and famous sites were recreated that were destroyed during the war based on photographic reference. Cars were animated, trams needed to speed through the streets and thousands of CG crowd digi-doubles made the city come alive.

Bablyon Berlin Season 3 is now out on Sky Europe and soon everywhere around the world streaming and on TV.“

Babylon Berlin S3 | Trailer

I am currently working at RISE as a Lead Compositor on the third season of Babylon Berlin.
The first trailer for the project just got its release and it looks great.

Kicking off in fall 1929, during the tumultuous weeks before Black Friday’s stock market crash, the latest series sees inspector Gereon Rath (Volker Bruch) and Charlotte Ritter (Liv-Lisa Fries) assigned to investigate the violent on-set death of an actress, only to realize that the film industry is as rotten as the underworld. In the meantime, the Black Reichswehr are regathering their forces for their next attempt to bring down democracy and use all the opportunities they can to provoke more clashes with the Communists.

When Hitler Stole the Pink Rabbit | Trailer

Warner Bros. just released the german trailer for „When Hitler stole the pink Rabbit“, a historical family drama I was working on earlier this year.

It is the latest project by the German Oscar-winning writer-director Caroline Link (Nowhere in Africa). When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, an adaptation of British writer Judith Kerr’s 1971 award-winning semi-autobiographical novel of the same name – about a young Jewish girl and her family’s escape from the Nazis through Switzerland and Paris in 1933, before settling in England in 1936 – will be released in Germany by Warner Bros. Pictures on 26 December 2019.
