In 2015 I shot corporate documentaries for EDEKA's winery, the Rheinbergkellerei in Bingen, Sonnländer, a fruit juice specialist and Panem, a factory for bakery products. This is a little Best-Of-Edit of these 3 films.
A concept film for a sino-german city of Life Sciences, vitality and smart living in China. It's a combination of 3D animation done by MACINA DIGITAL FILM and stock footage. I did the editing and animation of the FIVE SPRINGS Logo.

Are you going to run an EDEKA supermarket? How it works and what it means for established merchants, we show in this little infomercial.
Many thanks to design studio BITMAPBOOGIE in Berlin, with whom I had the opportunity to work on this project.

Since 2014 I shoot for EDEKA a little documentary series about regional producers in food industry in Bavaria, Germany. We visited dairy farmers, pig farmers, cheese dairies, millers and vegetable growers and everytime it has been like in the well known television show "Sendung mit der Maus": We learned a lot!!!
This film is about a family business for potato specialties - one of my favourites!
Shooting this documentary about a little dairy in the mountains of Reggio Emilia (north of Italy) was very special and such a nice experience. To get to know all this people who work and live there, far from civilization, was a great enrichment for the whole team.
It’s really amazing that a hand full of people produce by hand over 60 wheels of parmigiano reggiano a day, and only with the best regional ingredients.
We tasted a lot - sooooooo delicious!!!
If you wanna know how this parmigiano reggiano is been made - take a look!
In summer 2014 I got the chance to work with the great Udo Jürgens.
He wanted me to create a concert opening animation for his upcoming „Mitten im Leben“-Tour in fall 2014.
We first met in June in Zürich for kicking off the project. And I have to say: „What a great guy, what a gentle and honorable man!!“
He was so interested in being part of the creative work - that was amazing. A man at that age with a moderate knowledge about 3D animation. He also came up with the idea, visualizing all that places all over the world he has been visited and became something very special in his exciting life.
Summarizing it was an exciting project, and I am very grateful that I had the chance to get to know him and to work with him.
The video is from his very last concert in Zürich on December 7th, 2014. 2 weeks later Udo Jürgens died of a heart attack at the age of 80.
Many thanks to Frank Kaminski, who came up with this project.
