Making Poetry with a Camera

— Denis Villeneuve

I always loved the beauty of animation.

So I started my career as a motion designer. Lately, however, I’ve been expanding my focus to include the entire post-production process.

Now I work mainly as a video editor and occasionally VFX artist in B2C marketing.

In summer 2019 the company PlantaCorp GmbH contacted me and asked if I could help with an animated image film in which an anthropomorphic bull should play the leading role.

I got the chance to create a short teaser animation for Jan Philipp Burgard’s book “Ausgeträumt, Amerika?”, published by the Rowohlt Verlag GmbH in 2018.


The short film “Durststrecke” (Lean Period) was created as a submission for the 99 Fire Film Awards, where young creatives get 99 hours to produce a 99 second short film. Thereby we received the topic at the beginning of said 99 hours:

The correct german translation for the animal crab is “Krebs”.
However, this word also stands for Cancer. Hence “Knack den Krebs” (Crack the Crab) is a metaphoric wordplay encouraging people to defeat cancer.
