about the artwork
The German TV channel 'Deutsche Welle' commissioned me to redesign 'popxport', one of their popular music idents. The brief was to make it different, fresh and colorful.  For that reason I created a new pop-art music universe. The main focus of the graphics are the 3D charaters who are playing with music insteruments in an unusual way. The design part includes on-air design, set design and social media design. The TV show 'popxport' is broadcasted worldwide, twice a week.

Steffen Schrägle

about
Steffen Schrägle. After 20 years, I still love being a photographer! I was born and raised in the Black Forest of Germany, but it was the landscape of Ireland that first inspired my career choice. I specialize in automotive/CGI, architectural, landscape and lifestyle/sports photography. I currently live in both Germany and Spain with my American partner and our trilingual dog. In 2009 I founded Third Floor Company – a 3D/CGI production company – based in Germany. After many years of location shootings and studio productions as a photographer, I am able to bring a realistic feeling into the 3D virtual world. Additionally, having a thorough understanding of the CGI process influences and enhances my photography work. I enjoy the diversity of my work – the challenges and rewards of a career that is constantly evolving. Photography (and my bicycle) takes me to many parts of the world; and I am always learning from and humbled by this experience. As I continue seeking new opportunities to collaborate with people of different cultures and backgrounds, one thing remains constant: I stay curious.

about the artwork
Mercedes: We created this full-CG animation and key visual for the winter season start campaign for Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC all-wheel drive on behalf of PKP BBDO Vienna. Akrapovic: The louder the better. For AKRAPOVIC, a leading manufacturer of exhaust systems, we realized an image video featuring dust particles filmed on a bass membrane. High frequent sound impulses made them vibrate in various shapes. Completed by the original sound of a Lamborghini Gallard with an Akrapovic high-performance exhaust system, the film titled “The Sound of Speed” ensured high impact in all media channels. bob: Those who spent hours in arcades playing video games like Space Invaders, Donkey Kong or Pac Man will remember this special atmosphere fed by 8-bit music and huge gaming machines. For bob – an Austrian telecommunications services provider – we brought these memories back. Right before Easter our logic hero – a rabbit – conquers the well designed 80s retro stage, overcomes several obstacles, collects valuable items and finally reveals the latest bob-offer – that’s how the TV spot works. In order to bring this idea to life, we also developed a game based on the campaign´s style. And thus we created first degree experiences and a very high level of involvement. Try it out: https://ostergewinnspiel.bob.at/gewinnspiel The campaign was spread through all media channels (TV, print, Infoscreen, web and radio). On top the game was linked to a competition on the client´s website.

The works are all paper craft stop motion animations which means: every thing is hand made: both the animated paper objects AND the actual movements!

Tom Grammerstorf

about
Tom Grammerstorf, Baujahr `72. Direkt nach der Schule entschied sich Tom für einen kreativen Beruf. Es folgte das Studium in Braunschweig, welches er nach Anraten eines Professors dann aber wieder abbrach. Er merkte schnell, das der Input dort nicht reichte und ließ seine Kontakte spielen. Und wechselte direkt in die Assistenz um von den Großen zu lernen. Somit kam er u.a. nach Paris in die Peter Lindbergh Studios und zu anderen namhaften Fotografen auf der ganzen Welt. Dabei umfasste seine „Ausbildung“ alle möglichen Facetten der Fotografie.

"Als ich mich 2001 nach 8 Jahren als Assistent dann als Fotograf in Hamburg selbständig machte, war eben das meine große Stärke, universell einsetzbar zu sein. Im Laufe der Jahre jedoch zog es mich mehr und mehr zu der technisch anspruchsvollen Königsklasse der Werbung hin, der Automobilfotografie, welche heute noch, neben der People-Fotografie, meine hauptsächliche Ausrichtung ist. Dabei waren für mich immer besonders technisch anspruchsvolle oder komplizierte Projekte von besonderer Bedeutung, die mich angespornt haben, alles zu geben. Schon während des Studiums in den 90ern entdeckte ich die rudimentären Anfänge des CGI, welches ich seit 2004 fest mit in mein Repertoire aufgenommen habe. Jedoch reichte es mir nicht, als Fotograf daneben zu sitzen, sondern ich brachte mir die Fähigkeit und Technik zum „Rendern“, selber bei.

Vor vielen Jahren gründete ich eigens dazu meine CGI Firma „BRAIN CGI“ um der Fotografie eine zusätzliche virtuelle Ausrichtung zu geben. BRAIN CGI ist extrem skalierbar, und wir können große wie kleine Projekte, Still- oder Bewegtbild gleichermaßen bedienen. Dabei steht jedoch immer der fotografische Aspekt bei mir im Mittelpunkt, mit seiner Emotionalität, Ästhetik und Bildsprache. Mittlerweile ist das weltweit, für Fotografen diesen Levels, eine sehr seltene Ausrichtung, unabhängig und nicht auf Dritte angewiesen zu sein, und vereinfacht die Umsetzung jeder Produktion ungemein.

Meine Fähigkeiten als  Fotograf blieben deshalb auch in der Branche des CGI nicht lange unentdeckt und mittlerweile arbeite ich eng mit Herstellern von Rendering Lösungen zusammen, um meine fotografischen Erfahrungen mit in die nächste Generation der Programme einfließen zu lassen."

about the artwork
Virtual Brooklyn - Mit einem Freien Projekt hat sich Tom mit der Frage des derzeit machbaren auseinander gesetzt. Also inwieweit der Stand der Technik dazu dient, fotorealistische Renderings zu 100% am Computer zu generieren. Das ganze natürlich unter Bedingungen, die bei einer kommerziellen Produktion herrschen. Dabei sollte eine Athmosphäre geschaffen werden, wie sie in der echten Welt nur sehr kurz zu erleben ist. Der magische Moment nach einem Regenschauer bei Sonnenschein in einer Herbststimmung. Nach einer Internet Recherche in den Strassen von Brooklyn und Harlem, hat Tom klassische Brownstone Houses erdacht und virtuell erstellt, und eben diese emotionale Stimmung erzeugt. Dabei kamen eine vielzahl von unterschiedlichen Programmen zum Einsatz. Auch hier wurde mit einer Detailverliebtheit gearbeitet, um selbst bei genauem Blick, den Betrachter über die Künstlichkeit hinweg zu täuschen. BMW M6 GT3 Als freies Projekt ist eine Strecke mit dem GT3 M6 von BMW entstanden. Da ein reales Shooting an Rennstrecken immer sehr schwer sind, hat Tom sich entschieden, das gesamte Projekt in CGI zu realisieren. Dabei hat er über Internet Research diverse Rennstrecken als Inspirationsgrunglage genommen, und eine eigene Version im 3D Raum modelliert und texturiert. Der Vorteil war ganz klar der Gestaltungsspielraum. So konnte er Kameraabstände zum Auto ohne Hindernisse wählen, oder auch ein Lichtsetting erstellen, welches in der realen Welt nur schwer umzusetzen sein würde. Als Beispiel dient der tiefe Sonnenstand als "Roter Faden" in den Motiven. Mit viel Liebe zum Detail sind diese Motive entstanden, die erst bei genauerer und näherer Betrachtung in grosser Auslösung ihr Potential ausschöpfen.   911 Ein Rennen im Containerhafen, davon haben sicher schon viele Sportwagen-Enthusiasten geträumt. Leider ist das so gut wie unmöglich im realen Leben umzusetzen. Tom hat siech dieser Idee verschrien, und das Konzept mittels CGI realistert. Als Hintergrundbilder dienten Backplates aus dem Hamburger Hafen, allerdings kommen sie wirklich nur im Hinteren Hintergrund zum Einsatz. Den Rest hat Tom komplett in CGI realisiert. Neben Fahrzeug, Kränen und Containern, wurden selbst Wasser und Asphalt virtuell generiert. Enstanden sind so Bilder, die in der realen Welt nur schwer umzusetzen sein würden.

 

Ilka & Franz

about
Ilka & Franz are a German/ Austrian photographer duo based in London (UK). Their work blurs the lines between portraiture and still life and is often humorous with an unexpected twist. While their unmistakable use of colour is vibrant and bold, their conceptual undertones are often subtle and of child-like naivety. Ilka & Franz draw their inspiration from pop culture, kitsch and surrealism as they put a playful spin on the ordinary. The duo work on editorial and commercial commissions in the UK and abroad.

Michael Compensis & Thomas von Salomon | WE! shoot it

about
After years on their own, but allready working to gether on bigger projects, Logtime Professional Thomas von Salomon and Newcomer Michael Compensis became the creative Duo called "WE! shoot it" in 2016 and quickly made theirself a name in contemporary Transportation-Photography.

about the artwork
For quite some time, the creative duo from WE! shoot it, consisting of Michael Compensis and Thomas von Salomon, had the idea of turning the legendary racetrack on the roof of the former Fiat factory in Lignotto upside down with a top athlete. And it finally worked! With lots of CGI support and race car driver Iannis Symrlis. The two of them spent almost a week in Turin's Lingotto district where they photographed backplates and spheres. Together with race car driver and a real GT2 RS, they also got a taste of the incredible power of the street racer in Frankfurt. Together with Jörn Szypkowski, the car was staged afterward for the dynamic photos in CGI. Post production came from Bennjamin Görg. The result: a spread just bursting with the roar of the circuit.
