Detur Hamster

We had the pleasure of developing and animating Detur’s Austria-debut TV ad of a talking hamster.

Merkur Flagship Store POS Videos

This is a series of three videos (Fall 2012 Opening Event, Christmas and New Years Eve) that were shown on large Plasma TV screens in front of the new Merkur flagship store at Hoher Markt in Vienna. They are loopable indefinitely and originally had no sound – we just added Vivaldis Four Seasons to spice it up a little.

Friends and Flowers

Friends and Flowers music video color grading

We had a lot of fun color grading this music video for our friends, the Konsorten,  for one of their music videos they produced last year for Fury Loves You.  This one was interesting because, having been filmed with relatively low-cost equipment, it was hard to deal with all the noise in some of the  night time shots.

Band: Fury Loves You

Color Grading:  Stefan Kubicek
