After and during Werner I also worked on development for an 30 minute animation sequence for a documentary that myself and director Claudia Schmid are trying to get film funding for. I cant share what the idea is but should it work out I think it will be a great project to be involved in.
Next was "Cowboy Klaus und das Pupsende Pony " (Cowboy Klaus and the Farting Pony) .Yep, you read it alright! This was a really, really fun project and I found myself chuckling quietly, quite often while animating pony farts. Some light adult relief from everyday daily stresses!!
Cowboy Klaus is based on a kids childrens book beautifully illustrated by a chap named Karsten Teich I believe. Heres a sample.
Next stop Brussels, Belgiam to work on a feature film project based on a famous French comic. "Titeuf". This was also a wonderful experience and I´m glad I was involved. The style was quite tough to get into but at same time good fun and something new to try out. People were great as well, but that normally goes without saying in the animation industry.
I also did a storyboard for a transport company for an advertisement that they are making to promote themselves, and as soon as I am allowed to post it I will put ip up.
Well thats whats been done and at the moment Im working on a short animation called " Nelli " for JEP Animation a local studio here in Köln and it will be screened on a local TV network here as well. Along side that I am in the process of creating some title character illustrations for a book series that should be launched next year.
Thats the wrap.
