I AM HERE – Visual Effects

Format: Live Action VFX – 2014 – Customer: Zentropa – Anders Morgenthaler


Together with my good friend and partner-in-crime, Peter Ruschel, I worked as the Visual Effects supervisor on Anders Morgenthaler’s live action feature “I am here” – starring Kim Basinger and Peter Stormare. It was an amazing experience backed by one of the best teams I have ever worked with. It was shot over a summer in Hamburg. It was a very, very hard summercamp. Morgenthaler is a director who likes to keep it creative and not stick too hard to any planning – so we had to think on our feet, and coming up with quick solutions was the dish of the day. A lot of our pre-production planning went right out the window, but I am extremely proud of the work we did that ended up in the film!


A lot of our work made it to the trailer, so please enjoy that for now…
