Little Roommate

Little Roommate

Little Roommate is a short film about a music loving mouse.
We wanted to test out Blender and its capabilities. Our main interest was to use the Greasepencil in a 3D workflow.
So we decided to make a rig combining 3D and 2D. We are proud to present to you our finished work. Enjoy!

3D Configurator

3D Configurator – ott-oergeli GmbH

With the use of this 3D Configurator, users can make decisions about materials and modules and get a real-time 3D visualization of their accordeon. 

It is possible to download a pdf document with a preview image and a data sheet of the configuration, or alternatively send an email with the pdf.

This project was interesting, because it connected my interest for CGI and web design.
I used React and Three Fiber to build this website.

CGI Experiments

Digital Puppets

The goal of these experiments was to test out the possibilities of puppeteering using hand tracking.
All the puppets can be controlled in realtime and are later rendered in a second pass.

It was very fun to develop this solution and to play around with these hand puppets.

Software: SideFX Houdini, Blender

PERSONAL TASKS

technical setup, character models, rigging, lightning

Animation Test

This is an animation I made during the animation course LuMAA.
My focus layed on the animation and I did the shading/lighting in Blender using Eevee later on.

A big thank you to the mentors and students, for the great feedback and inputs.

Software: Maya, Blender

PERSONAL TASKS

Animation, Assembly, Lighting

Tetris

Here the challenge was, to make something on one day.
I used simple paths to create these Tetris blocks and simulated them as Softbodies.
Hope you enjoy it!

Software: SideFX Houdini, Blender

PERSONAL TASKS

all aspects (procedural modeling, simulation, shading, lighting)

Shane – Zukunft

For the release of the single „Zukunft“ I made this visualizer.
The title means future and was my inspiration to use AI (Artificial Intelligence) to generate the images and the morphs.

Software: Artbreeder

Verkehrshaus – Mission Earth

Mission Earth

A 33 minute long movie for the Museum of Transport in Lucerne.

The show takes the viewer to a journey high up into space.
Beside beautiful nature phenomena, it shows the impact of the humankind on the planet. It was produced for the planetarium.

I worked with data chunks in the form of tables and visualized them as enjoyable motion graphics.

Software: SideFX Houdini, Cinema 4D

PERSONAL TASKS

Motion Design, Visualization of big data sets, Rigging

Blindgänger

Blindgänger

This campaign is from the Swiss military to spread awareness, about the danger of unfound ammunition.
The unexploded mortar grenade isn’t found over many years, until a little girl happens to find it.

I worked mainly on the foreground, which is fully CGI. The challenge was to generate multiple seasons, so the audience understands, that a long time has passed.

Software: Substance Painter, Cinema 4D, Redshift Renderer
