Most of these projects are part of my bachelor project, which I finished in february 2022.

My bachelor partner Caecilia-Isabella Glaas created the characters and Andreas Sekler did the animation of each shot, while my responsibility was to light and composite the assets and shots for the final product.

Painter Yui

Concept by Suzan Azakli
Character by Caecilia-Isabella Glaas
Animation by Andreas Sekler

One shot from my bachelor thesis project I worked on. I tried to create a stylized candle lit interior contrasted by the moonlight shining from the outside.


Girl and her Alpaca

Concept by Julia Blattman
Characters & Environment by Caecilia-Isabella Glaas

I tried to recreate the lighting of the initial concept art as close as possible to get a rather stylized, painterly look.

Princess Saiya

Initial Concept by Suzan Azakli
Character by Caecilia-Isabella Glaas
Animation by Andreas Sekler and Rebecca Lagaly

This sequence should convey an abstract and mysterious mood and feeling. The character is in an empty realm, where reality is not what it seems to be. The cold, blue lighting, caustics projected onto her face and glassy refraction effects are meant to put an emphasis on the surrealism of this scene.

Old Shrine

For this shot I created the environment, simulated the rain and did the lighting and compositing. The goal was to create a dramatic and moody scenery. I used the dark atmosphere outside the shrine to emphasize the interior as some kind of safe haven from the danger outside.
