Mascarpone is a homage of the old hollywood movies and cinemar itself.
It was a fruitful cooperation between the Set Design, Animation and Cinematography department. We went to explore old techniques, such as Rear-Projection, Stop-Motion and Cut-Out Animation. But also modern Compositing with analog miniature buildings and 3D-elements.
For myself, this film was a great opportunity to dive into the world of visual effects, as well as analog film tricks. I love preproduction, the more complicated it is to archive a certain shot, the more valuable is a good preparation. I appreciate the creative freedom you gain, when introducing effects and VFX people tent to appreciate my commitment in pre-production. Mascarpone is my practical BA thesis movie, it’s been screen at over 60 festivals worldwide and won several prizes and nominations. My cinematography work in particular has been nominated for the Deutscher Kamerapreis, the most presics award in the german speaking area.
