Here are two pictures of one of our current projects. Directed by Johannes Weiland and Klaus Morschheuser, designed by Sandra Brandstätter, the film is about trials and tribulations of a girl, a mountaintop and a lion in a ballet tutu.

It will have its premiere this autumn within the ZDF kids series ‘Siebenstein’.

It’s Adventure Time!

June 20th, 2013

If you are wondering whether we did anything else besides ‘Gumball’ and ‘Schrecken ohne Ende’ last year, the answer is yes! We were allowed to dip into the land of Ooo to create 3D Animations, Models and Rigs for the ‘Adventure Time’ Episode ‘The Glitch’.

Many thanks to our colleagues Tobias von Burkersroda, John Coomey, Mark Feller, Robert Lehman, Parzival Röthlein, Peter Ruschel, Jakob Schuh and Max Stöhr who worked on this project.
