Film score for motion picture 'Mes - Walking' and its trailer

Friendship is something wonderful. Under ideal conditions it also develops, when obvious differences, e.g. in age, look or style, don’t let it show that two people are connected deep inside despite outward appearance.

“Walking” (“Mes”), the Kurdish motion-picture from director Shiar Abdi, deals with such a friendship. The movie is set in the 1980’s, where Cengo (Abdullah Ado), a twelve year old boy and the odd, dumb and slightly mentally deranged Xelilo (Selamo) – a man living in an old garage and scuffing and striding up and down in front of the town hall day after day – slowly become friends. They spend more and more time with each other and with Cengo’s friends, as they unexpectedly are drawn into the tribulations of the Turkish take-over of power, which radically changes their lives and those of their families and friends.

Wheat has been cultivated by mankind for several thousand years and even today, it’s one of the most important staple foods there are. But where does all that wheat actually come from?

His movie is a production for the educational television programme “Planet Schule”, which is a collaborative project of SWR and WDR. He vividly explains all the different processes wheat has to go through - from seed to mill and beyond.

But what about the “normal live” of these people, how do they live, how do they spend their free time, which person is behind that image, he or she gets identified with?

Film score, sound design and 5.1-final mix for animated movie 'Bear’s Bride'

Meetings between man and bear are doubtful most of the time. Too often they result in headlines like “Bear eats man”, Man kills bear” or people only know circus-, zoo- or problem-bears. The 2D animation move “Bear’s Bride” from Derek Roczen also tells from such a meeting, but of different cast, as a young bear and a young woman come across in the forest and become friends quickly. From now on they live together, share bed and hut and would probably live happily ever after, if the bear wouldn’t grow up more and more and reaches adulthood.

Film score, sound design and 5.1-final mix for animated movie 'Pebblestone'

To see the world through the eyes of a child is for an adult sometimes hard to do. While terms like playing, romping or tinkering are not that important in the adulthood, they are absolutely essential for children. Coupled with fantasy in great quantities – which regarding to children actually is always overabundant – an adventure might enfold, like little Lisa experiences in the 3D animation movie “Pebblestone”.

Music for TV-commercial of R+V-Versicherungen

If one should describe the future with the help of a picture, what would it look like? Like a park bench populated with city pigeons or rather like a beach chair with a seagull shambling by in front? And how about flexibility? Similar to a forward bend, where the finger tips hardly reach the ankles or rather like setting the palm of the hand easily to the floor?
