Directory & Management

Already as a child I came into contact with the film business. At age 11 I was allowed to play a minor role in the KIKA children’s film “Kiss Me Frog“. I also performed in various roles in the school theatre. After graduation I worked for two years in the film and theatre industry, mostly as a director's assistant.
In addition, I realised my own film projects and then studied law in Leipzig. I remained loyal to the hobby "film and video production", which finally led to my current profession.

I've been shooting short films, commercials and music videos since I was 12 years old. After my graduation, my documentary debut “Testfahrer” (engl. “Test Driver”, 2012) surprisingly received 25 film awards and also was awarded with the title "Especially Valuable" (german “Besonders Wertvoll”) by the German Film Rating Commission in Wiesbaden. In the meantime, I've made over 300 commercials, 7 short and 2 medium-length films.

Visual Effects & Rendering

After seeing “Matrix” for the first time in 1999, I could not let go of the subject of special video effects. Even in my school days, I produced numerous short films focusing on post-production, but it was only after my training as a specialist in computer science that I turned my affinity for video and technology into a career. In addition, I make sure that the right equipment is ready for use on set and all the footage for upcoming VFX is suitable. My experience and programming skills always help me to turn unusual ideas into reality.

Drone & Color Grading

Since the age of six I play theatre. Soon I also played small roles in front of the camera. This is how my first set experiences occurred and I realised that I would like to work in this area later. I studied media technology with the direction of television at the University of Mittweida and already before graduating I completed various internships in the media industry.
During my studies I learned how to work with various cameras, editing and animation programs. Since university’s special emphasis is placed on practical work, I was already able to gather a lot of shooting and editing experience.

Sound Design & Editing

About 20 years ago I started to make music with my former computer, a Commodore Amiga. After graduation I successfully finished my apprenticeship as an Audio Engineer at the SAE in Cologne. From there I finally moved via Munich to Thuringia and worked as a sound engineer in a small theatre. There I met Florian in 2008. Since then I am a permanent sound designer of the Picmention film team and compose the film music. I compose music especially for commercials and own short films and I also mix the sound.

Manufacturing & Project Management

From the cool north into the glittering film world of Leipzig's city: After a never-started career as a designer with a degree, I was finally accepted in the club of the beautiful and rich - behind the scenes. As a girl for everything I made myself a name and finally found my way in the office as an assistant to the producer and as a set-AL in film and television. I parked big cars and struggled with poor walkie-talkie reception. It was a crazy time!

Since 2017, I am in a good mood and ensure stress and order in the Picmention team. Privately I bake the best brandy brownies and my DVD collection is probably bigger than yours.

The chaos and the order in one: While I passionately turn every stone in my head around, I also love the neat and tidy work of to-do lists and excel spreadsheets. I'm ready to make the impossible possible – whether it's low-budget movies or a T-Rex on set. If I have learned one thing, it’s you can always find a solution.

1st Graphic & Storyboard

Already at a young age I brought life to white pages only with a pen or colour. Whether dinosaurs or fighter jets, no motive was too difficult in the childish naivety. Over the years, influences from animated films, movies, comics, video games, anime and music videos have been absorbed and put on paper. Especially the virtual band “Gorillaz” influenced me later and led to my first steps into the digital world. The passion for design and graphics led to a design study at the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences over a two-year apprenticeship.
Since 2016 I am working for Picmention.

Even as a child, blue was my favorite colour. Thus it inevitably had to happen that Picmention kindly welcomed me into its team. Until the time I got to the HTWK Leipzig (of course with a blue logo) I acquired knowledge and finished my bachelor’s degree in media technology. The study and subsequent internships and jobs led me from the television world and technology to the animation area, where I lost my heart.
Since March 2016, I'm working as an animator in the area of 2D / 3D at Picmention and lose myself in the jungle of after effects or cinema-4D polygon madness.

Lighting & Compositing

Hi, I'm Philipp, I have been working for Picmention since 2016. I'm mostly buried behind the screens and responsible for tasks regarding motion graphics, compositing and 2D animation. On the set myself, I'm working as a lighting technician and support the team in technical construction and conversions.

How did I get to my job? Starting with photography and first image manipulations, my passion for image editing started to arouse. Soon after, the first video effects and motion graphics followed. I have made my interest to a profession by studying media technology. Since then I have been working on animations. I am constantly collecting new inspiration, self-taught and through exchanging ideas with other filmmakers and projects.

Docu-Camera & 2D Animation

A television award, two Golden Globes, the German Film Prize, three Oscars, a golden camera, the Golden Bear a Golden Palm from Cannes – unfortunately I have not gotten any of those awards.

Nevertheless, I have been with Picmention since 2014, as a cameraman or on the monitor for animations. In our films we show the real life and people. We explain things and tell stories, always with a high demand on our own work. With a sense for the image and my technical affinity, I was already able to work with creative teams during my studies. This resulted in reports and documentaries such as “Friendship Middle East”, “EXIT Germany” or “RIGHT home”, which won the Chemnitz Peace Prize in 2013.

"Feel-Good" Manager & Film Dog

Yes, you have recognised me, of course! Once upon a time, I had a brilliant career as a villain in an internationally known superhero film series. But then the idiots from "The Dark Kingdom" have me first drowned and then they let me die. My new master then took me to an Italian academy where I became a “Feel-good” manager.

I have been with the Picmention film crew since August 2016. Part of my main job is to prepare actors for their positive roles and to accompany the rest of the crew during the often long days of shooting. Every day I have to scratch my ears for hours and pick up sticks. The job is really tough!

(And before you ask: For creepy film roles, my colleague Hasso is let out of the cellar – pfff!)

3D- & 2D-Animation

How do you develop narratives, characters and situations to communicate information with others on a human level? Stories have fascinated me since my childhood in Egypt, whether it's myths, fiction or true events in our shared past. So I decided to devote myself to narrative art and master my favourite narrative tools: animation and moving image.

After my bachelor's degree at the Bauhaus University Weimar and on their behalf, I have given several workshops, tutorials and courses on the topics of 3D animation, animation theory and storytelling.

Camera- & Lighting Assistant

As a village boy, I did not care much about the city, but that changed when I enrolled at the sports school in Leipzig. There I have been practicing judo as a competitive sport for 6 years. At the age of 11, I came into contact with the subject of film when I was filming the "Olsen Gang" with my father's and my brother's camcorder. Afterwards, I became more and more involved with the subject and meanwhile I already have some film projects and internships behind me.
Through my trainer, I became aware of Picmention and now I am doing an internship for a year. My later career aspiration has definitely been strengthened by the internship.

Production Manager

From the theatre to the movie. This sentence can probably best describe my life so far. I got my passion and fascination for the theatre back from school and started to study Theatre Studies at the University of Leipzig in 2010. During my bachelor studies I came across a film set for the first time. I was immediately enthusiastic about this world and have accompanied more and more film projects and completed various internships in the media industry until I became a permanent part of Picmention.

Production Assistant & Disposition

Theatre, photo-school at school, the first own camera, first own laptop and – FINALLY – Windows Movie Maker. From an early age I discovered my passion for photography and film, which also led to the choice of my studies in the field of media management. I chose the specialisation “media production” and learned skills in dealing with professional camera and editing techniques. Due to the very practical training I was involved in many film and television projects and was later allowed to direct a film project abroad. I really like the variety in the film business, dealing with customers and the film crew, and of course the exciting time on the film set. Therefore I am more than pleased that I can do my internship at Picmention.

Pictures say more than a thousand words. I will find out what else films can achieve.

2D-Animation & Graphic Assistant

From childhood on I have the passion to draw and shape. This passion follows me to this day and still shapes my career. After graduation I started my studies in multimedia | VR design and dealt with all forms of digital design. I learned how to use various illustration / animation and application programs and have since then been involved with conception, illustration and 2D animation, as well as 3D modelling / animation.

Script & Concept

In 2007, for the first time, I exhibited my art in schools and public institutions, followed by various commissioned work. Two years later I met Florian and started with my idea for the award-winning short film “Mindbreak”, the collaboration with the team of Picmention/Sons Of Motion Pictures. Since then I have been a permanent part of the team as author, dramaturge and co-director. In 2010, I began studying art and education at the University of Erfurt and dared to take the step into self-employment as a freelance artist. During this time, “Testfahrer” was born, and with more than 25 film awards and the title "Especially Valuable" (german: “Besonders Wertvoll”) is our most successful short film so far.
In 2012 I changed my study subject and started to study Media Art and Design at the Bauhaus University Weimar.
In the following year, as part of the annual “backup festival” in Weimar, I began working with young people as a tutor for documentary filming. The final film was twice awarded in the context of media education competitions.
In the summer of 2016, I finished my studies at the Bauhaus University Weimar with the title “very good” and have
