posted in: Public | 0

Last week I visited the FMX and ITFS 2019. It was a great pleasure for me as it was the two times before. The FMX theme this year was Bridging the Gap between Art and Tech. I always love to see how other artists develop beautiful and inspiring concepts. I find it astonishing, how Aardman Animations are creating this historical blurred look of 11-11: Memories Retold. And I’ve fallen in love with the new work of LAIKA Missing Link, where … more

A few days ago my business cards arrived. I used different motives for the front side and only my basic data for the back. Because I love it clean and clear. The default motive shows my new self-portrait. Then I decided to use two of my ink artwork which I made for Inktober. At least I used two pictures of my current animated short Fish for Life as one variation. I will need my business cards next week at the … more

This week my fellow students published their VR game Letzte Worte on steam. The story of the game is very profound. Matthias Patscheider, Samantha Povolny, and Bianca Zankl did a splendid good job!

talented

My cousin Nina and three schoolmates of her created a concept for a new app called talented. The four girls – Lara Drozda, Nina Gierlinger, Karla Oder, and Polina Pozdnyakova – thought about young talented writers for whom it is too difficult to get in touch with book publishers. Therefore, they had the idea of an app, which should make this contact easier. Their concept had already won the competition of the Vienna Business School. talented even got nominated for the … more

After missing this occasion every single time the past few years I’m finally making my contribution to the worldwide art challenge called Inktober. Every October, thousands of artists take on a challenge by drawing one ink artwork a day the entire month. Therefore, some guidelines exist, which I’m not following, though. I prefer following my own ideas and daily impressions. Well, then… Today is the 11th of October – and these pictures above are my work so far. Do you … more

Nonverbal Expression in Animated Movies. With Timothy Reckart.

posted in: Public | 0

Currently, I’m writing my master thesis about Nonverbal Expression in Animated Movies. Therefore, I will analyze some works, amongst others, Head Over Heels by Timothy Reckart. The animated short won lots of awards. 2013, it was even nominated for an Oscar. Not surprisingly, because of the sensitive story and its lovely realization in stop-motion. It beautifully shows the relationship of an elderly couple. For my thesis, I had some questions about the making of this short and I was very honored … more
