BRANSCH artist Kai Wiechmann went to the soapbox derby not knowing what to expect, and was bitten by the “gravity bug”
The good old soapbox car built from wooden crates and rollerskate wheels has evolved. Nowadays, advances in material technology have lead to light, modern machines, made from high tech composite materials like carbon fiber and heat treated aluminium. The looks have changed but the rules remain the same: Go downhill fast, no motors, and please wear a helmet!
Amongst all the surprising high tech slickness, Kai was most intrigued by the dense atmosphere of anticipation, the air buzzing with the excitement of race day – just like the touring car races that Kai went to with his father when he was a child.
For BRANSCH artist Steffen Jagenburg, it is always a magical moment when sound and motion add to the feel of his imagery. It is like giving life your own expressions.
It is a beautiful, welcome challenge to cover content in two different visual ways: still and motion. Steffen's numerous clients look for that - someone to use the same language in film and photography, combined with Steffen's great aesthetic sensibility and attitude.
BRANSCH artist Sven Schrader introduces his new showreel. It containes footage of several movie projects that he produced over the last two years. It shows his diverse work for advertising, music videos and private short films. As multifaceted with his motion as he is with his still photography, Sven's aesthetic informs both.
