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.
