IB Trailer

Animation, Uncategorized

The animated image film for Internationaler Bund (IB), one of the big German charities. This was a cooperation with the International Festival of Animated Film Stuttgart. The concept was initially developed in a workshop I gave at the 2016 festival with IB employees. I tried to put all the ideas together, made the designs and the storyboards and did most of the animation:

Direction, animation and design:                             Derek Roczen

Additional Animation:                                                  Jennifer Heil

Music and Sound Design                                             Dorothea Bohr and Geo Schaller

Thanks to the ITFS….


Petersson und Findus: Das schönste Weihnachten überhaupt

Animation, storyboard, Uncategorized

Here some Storyboards I did for Tradewind Pictures in Cologne. The film premiered two weeks ago. The brunt of the Storyboards were done by my friend Albert Radl , because at some point the they thought I had moved abroad. Hard Luck… It was big fun working on this. There is a third part in the making, but I have too much work doing illustrations for books at the moment, so I declined.

I hope it does well at the box office. The film is really nice.

(don´t confuse it with the Museum für Angewandte Kunst if you want to come). It was a pretty complicated project because it is pretty complicated subject. It is basically meant to help Asylum seekers understand the whole process. I will post a link to the website where you can watch it as soon as it is finished.I did the design, the storyboard, animatic and most of the animation. The style is very simple.

Thanks a lot to the people who helped me and the people who did the real hard work by organizing all  this.
