CG Showreel

My fascination for CGI was always huge. To use the power of a computer, mathematics and logic to be creative and create entire worlds that couldn't exist in the world that we know, is one of the greatest things for me on the planet. Basically CGI gives us the opportunity to share every crazy and fantastic idea. The only limit is the own imagination and the own skills. And that's exactly what I'm working on for several years. My CG Showreel shows some work I did in the past years. But that's just the beginning. I see it as my vocation to picture things not just how they obviously are. I want to think things differently and create worlds that inspire people.

Living in the future

In spring 2016, our university class collaborated with the magazine Handelszeitung from Axel Springer. The task was to show how our lives could look like in the future in a row of animated infographics. The research about the six different topics was done by the journalists of Handelszeitung. In teams of two we produced one animated infographic each team. The finished infographics where published together with journalistic articles about the topics by Handelszeitung. The output was a six-part series about the life in the future. The Animation “Living in the future” was produced by Luis Balzer and me. On 30.06.2016, it was published by the Handelszeitung Magazine.

Flush – Highschool graduation work

2014/2015 I worked on my graduation work Flush. My goal was, to unite my self-educated film skills that I had so far and the sport Freerun in one project. It’s a five-minute short-film about a young man that takes a pill which sends him to a dream-world, where he can move like never before. Important for me was to play with an aesthetic film-look, rhythm and velocity. The piece should launch me to get an internship or a place at university. With success.

This website was coded completely by me in HTML and CSS. I learned the basics of HTML and CSS in university and really enjoyed the course. So I went on learning HTML and CSS on my own to finally code my own portfolio-website. A CMS with a preset would have been an option for a portfolio, but that restriction would have made my designers heart cry. I love to develop my side step by step and fill it with my own content.
