Imprisoned rappers

‘Imprisoned Rappers’ is the working title of a documentary about a group of five rapping young men, their everyday life behind bars and an alluring career in the music business. We escorted them for one day to their second concert at all. Tensions were high as this concert of all places should be in the neighboured block. The footage of this one day led into a short documentary that was part of a grant application. Because of differences with the prison’s administration the actual documentary was never shot.

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.
