‘Haven’t been blogging for a while but have been quite busy working on new projects. :)
The most recent one was another realtime Animation with “tooll“. This time with a completely different style of music. I had to make some last minute changes which didn’t really improve anything, so I will most probably release an updated version soon. The lovely music is by gloom. And as always, you can download it and run it in realtime on your hardware.
In June I collaborated once more with the “Zentrum für politische Schönheit“. I designed a graveyard in the middle of the government district in berlin:
Before that I made a little animation that explains the european / german debate about “net neutrality”. English version is coming soon:
Earlier this year I released another demo at the Nvidia gtc / nvscene demoscene event. “coronoid” was an experiement about music and visuals. “JCO” who did all the sounds and music wrote a really cool blogpost about the whole workflow: The Sound of “Coronoid”
Don’t forget to download and watch it in 4k, 8k or even in 12k ;)
Then I tried visualizing the “wealth inequality”-statistics that you might have seen in one form or another. A very minimalistic approach:

After almost one year of hard work, I finally released my newest animation: Wir Lieben Überwachung (We love surveillance)
It’s german with english subtitles. But I am working on a real english version.
In case you are wondering why ONE REASON ist not working anymore. I have released a final version with corrected numbers. Enjoy:

So here’s what happened in the last months crammed into one quick blogpost. :)
I made some Animation for Excision (https://www.excision.ca) which you can catch a glimpse of in my latest demoreel
I worked on a _lot_ of motion graphics that explain topics like “BigData” or “MOOCs” – going to post these if I get the time to write proper english subtitles.
For an (almost) photoreal change I worked on the intro of a documentary about a well known chinese Army.
You can watch the making of Qin here:
For one of the worlds biggest Demoscene events I made a musicvideo about a little parasite. The amazing :)
A couple of (german) motion graphics jobs later I started working on my first serious realtime animation. Another demoscene Project. A collaboration with and their own amazing animation software called “Tooll”.
Out came the most stylish and highest quality musicvideo of all time: Eternal Dream of Beauty!
Surprisingly is got us the second prize on the NVscene Demoparty.
You can also download the full Animation as a little exe and let it render in realtime on your own graphics card (if it supports DirectX 11).

my newest animation has just been released: NOISIA: Could this be
You can watch it here: NOISIA: Could this be on YouTube
And here on MTV IGGY: mtviggy.com/videos/noisia-could-this-be/
Client was Noisia and Mau5trap
Compared to my last project for Noisia: ‘EXODUS’ which was made during a time span of 3 years, ‘Could this be’ had a significantly lower time budget.
I wanted to experiment with a clear visual style that benefits the story and allows me to finish this on time without renting a huge renderfarm.

I haven’t mentioned here on my blog yet. But I have released the Exodus ‘making of’ a couple of weeks ago. You can watch it on youtube or on vimeo.
I have been contacted by a lot of people who wanted to redo the sound fx and music for exodus. This is the first great sound interpreation of the video made by melanie eng. It’s really interesting to see exodus feels with soundfx and background music since it was actually animated and cut for a 4/4 beat.
I will post another Soundinterpreation in a couple of days. Stay tuned.

Better late than never: Here is my demoreel which shows most of the work I did at image-engine during the production of Disctrict9.
You can see which part of the shot I did in the upper left corner.
Big thanks to Misanthrop for allowing me to use his music!

I have directed an ad for http://www.futurejustice.org together with Scholz&Volkmer.
The Film can finally be viewed online.
My aim was to get away from the usual “stop destroying nature” “we are polluting our own planet” phrases and come up with something that creates a fresh perspective. So I made a TV show for an Alien channel that explains the “humans” and their political system.
“We urgently need a balancing representation of “the long view” in our political institutions.
This is why we promote Ombudspersons for Future Generations on all governance levels.”
Video: Alexander Lehmann http://www.alexanderlehmann.net
Voice: Phil Bonney
music: iambic http://www.iambicmusic.com
thanks to: Isabel Prahl
Background: The aim was to create a provoking ad that explains todays problems but also tries to show a possible solution through the ombudsperson.
I worked on the script with the client and the agency for about a month. After recording the voice of Phil Bonnet I started to create the film itself. The Film had to be finished in around 10 days which includes creating all the assets/animation/fx/editing etc.
I used 3dsmax for the animation.
You can also watch it here:
and you can see some high res screens on my new flickr channel.
