Birne, Schädel & Haupt – the monthly short film by NÖT

Hi ya’ll,

Benjamin Swiczinsky and his company Neuer Österreichischer Trickfilm are now creating a brand-spankin’ new animated short film every month. It is featuring their heraldic bird with three heads, each of them representing one of the members of NÖT. The heraldic bird will experience many entertaining adventures, most of the somehow related to creating animated film.

Watch this space to get a chance to contribute to the creation of this amazing series in the near future. As commonly expected for shorts and films featured in this blog, music and sound were done by me 🙂

So check this out and have fun:

Between Bar – A short film by Pauline Flory

Hi y’all,

before the year is over I have to issue a blogpost for 2015 – I realize that nothing has been written yet. There have been two projects this year worth mentioning, one of them is a short film that I am about to finish:

Pauline Flory has made an amazing 5-minute short film called “Between Bar”, where her protagonist enters a bar an tries to become a part of this universe – in vain? There is some alcohol involved as well as a few interesting halluci… visions.

Music has been written and recorded and the sound design ist basically done, so I am in the process of finishing the mix for the film. See it soon (like…2016) at a film festival near you…!

All the best,
Alexander.

PS: Check out a really short, but really interesting making-of here.

Wiener Zeitung – commercials for the world’s oldest newspaper

hi there,

i recently finished a few spots (web, and so far also one of them for cinema) for Wiener Zeitung the world’s oldest newspaper.

this paper is now in danger of going bankrupt, since our vice chancellor is considering to cancel the mandatory publishing of laws and other official information in the Wiener Zeitung. Paid content that obviously makes a considerable part of the paper’s revenue.

anyway, just before that suggestion went public, the nice folks at Wiener Zeitung decided to do a little campaign with Neuer Österreichischer Trickfilm, a company that is run by friends of mine. who, naturally, asked me to do sound and music. so here’s the first spot that has been released – enjoy!

all the best,
Alexander.
