I was very happy to find out this morning, that the whole Michael Caine lecture "Acting on Film" is available on YouTube, now. Man, was I hunting for that thing! Strongly recommended.

A CD-cover I did back in 1990 for my singer/songwriter-friend Klaus Hoffmann.

Setting a few things straight...

A while ago I did this bunch of sketches together with a small team over at DW to explore expression and caricature on human faces, using the likes of Kirk Douglas, Rock Hudson, Jim Carrey, JFK a.o. as reference. It was an experiment never meant to become a feature, as far as I know. Because the guy on the left is holding a ray-gun I consequently called the picture RAY GUN, it is as simple as that. It was in NO way connectected to Brad Bird's Ray Gunn- project, although lately the rumour appears here and there on the internet. Damn, how I wish it was true !!!

A couple of quick first sketches for an industrial cleaning-company, trucks, containers, that sort of thing. The elephant and his team didn't make it.

Roger Rabbit Storyboards Prt. 1

I promised you this a while ago. These are some old storyboardsketches I did together with Hans Bacher over at Amblin in 1987. I won't go into detail about every single pic, but I'll keep updating this throughout the next days. Keep looking in and enjoy.

Most of this stuff is Eddie looking for Jessica Rabbit in this huge Toon-Hotel. Here he finds the door blocked by the doorknob from "Alice". Sadly RR takes place in 1947, so using a character from a later dated movie was a " no,no".

A tour through Amblin from a magazine of that time. I wasn't allowed to take my own pictures and I had to turn the camera in, when I tried it nevertheless.So I kept these as a souvenir. I have no idea, who the guy in the pictures is.Probably the gardener.

Happily Never After

So here it is after all: The HNA-Trailer.
A loooooooong time ago in a galaxy far far away I too had that troubled project on my desk. It was one of those typicall German briefings : Hired for a week or two I was asked to come up with a bunch of sketches, no chance to do some real serious, professional work, just a bit of doodling.
You might have seen some of this sketches in a different context before, anyway : here they are again, and please check out the trailer under the above link.

The wizad had a little pet back then, a cross of dog and dragon

Audrey Hepburn as Sabrina was my brief for Cinderella

Robbie Williams was role model for the cook.That might give you an idea about how long ago this was,Judging from the trailer it changed to Johnny Depp.
