Go up in smoke

‘Go up in smoke’ is a music video for the Frankfurt group Good Heart Boutique. Another joint project with the comic artist Christopher “Piwi” Tauber. For the shooting we used 20 years old vintage pro-VHS-cameras to get this unique lo-fi 80s music show look. It successfully fitted together with the rough garage sound of the band.

This is the online portfolio for motion and design projects and related research of Nico Roicke. I'm a graduate of MA Communication Design, pathway Digital Media, at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London. Also I'm part of the motion design studios Sir ja sir and Buchstabenschubser.

Beside motion graphics (or motion design, if you prefer) I'm the co-founder of the fanzine and weblog Jackpot Baby! - New digital pop culture (all texts unfortunately in German language) and I write for Berlin's finest Webblog Spreeblick - Pop, Politics, Products & Positions (German again). Go and catch up some of my latest tweets on Twitter (English and German, it's really hard to tell) or take a glance at some of my Flickr pics and Vimeo vids.
