Unter Medienleuten Show Intro

Olympiapark in munich with lights flying over it


Twice a year, the Bayerische Akademie für Fernsehen (BAF) organizes a talk show called Unter Medienleuten that its students produce. Unter Medienleuten is a talk show where media professionals are invited and interviewed by students. In 2013/2014, I studied Animation & Visual Effects (VFX) at the BAF. In groups, all Animation & VFX students created an intro animation and designed all the show's graphics. Student voting selected my team's work to be used in the show.


In our concept, we wanted to show media professionals on the way through the city to meet at the BAF. Media professionals are abstracted as light streaks flying through Munich past monuments on their way to the studio.

Making of

Every shot consisted of timelapse footage and a 3D-rendered animation that was composited over the footage. To make the light streaks cast light and shadow onto the environment in the footage, each shot had to be recreated as 3d models, which was the most time-consuming task of the project.
