With a little bit of luck…

January 27th, 2014

Here are two designs our colleague Sebastian Koch made for two ‘Löwenzahn’ shorts. Both films, created by Linus Stetter and Thilo Kienle, are about luck and superstition. They had their premiere beginning of this year. Marcus Schäfer made additional designs. If you’re interested in a short preview, have a look at our website.

Creating Björn

September 26th, 2013

Here are some impressions of how the character ‘Björn’ from ‘Trolltag’ came to life. Sandra Brandstätter made the design, Klaus Morschheuser created the clay-model and Christian Höhn took care of the shading.

Thanks to the whole team for working with us on the film.

Der Grüffeloadventskalendercountdown #21

December 21st, 2010

Throughout the production of “The Gruffalo” we felt very lucky to be able to approach both Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, the book’s author and its illustrator, for their advice. Early on, Axel graciously supplied us with a series of beautiful drawings of the film’s then potential sidecharacters, many of which -to our fault- didn’t make it into the film. One though, the toad, became a much beloved cast member to us (see him in action here). Top: Initial design for the toad by Axel Scheffler. Below: Modelsheet by Max Lang. Bottom: Final model by Wolfram Kampffmeyer and Felix Schaller.

Watch “The Gruffalo” on Dec. 24th, 10.40 am on ZDF and on Dec 25th, 04.30 pm on the BBC.
