In part one and two of our Making-of VINES series (you can read part 1 here) we already talked about filming and some aspects of postproduction. This blog post will cover the elaborate process of creating the VFX for VINES. I will give detailed information about the problems that occurred and how I have fixed them. If you […]

Below you can watch our short film, a short Making-of Video and read about Pre Production and Filming. A post about Post Production and one about […]

When he finds out that his brother has been imprisoned in the […]
For a commercial shoot (which can be seen here or at the end of this article) we used the GH5 on the Ikan Beholder EC1 Gimbal and soon realized, that the stability of our shots could be improved by the camera’s Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).

To create a commercial for 3D printed jewelry, I am collaborating with 3D artist/filmmaker Noah Hähnel to showcase his jewelry in a fairy-tale-like fashion. The jewelry is designed in Cinema 4D (C4D) and printed into different materials. In the commercial vines are magically coming to life and eventually turn into jewelry. (Update: you can watch the finished […]
In this short video I am testing the new Dual Pixel AF of the Canon 70D in movie mode to see how good it can track an object when the camera is moving. All shots are done with the Canon 17-55 2.8 IS USM. As you can see the AF does a very good job […]
Corporate Film shot on the Red Epic. Director/Cinematographer: Sören Schulz and Dennis Jacobsen Client: Heinrich Elbracht OHG, Störk & Terbeek We shot this corporate film in 4.5 days, which sounds like a lot for a 3.5 minute film but was necessary considering we had five different major locations and most of the shots were done […]
