At the time he mainly worked on broadcast design and commercials for clients like MTV Europe, RTL and large European post production houses like “Das Werk”.

He was also involved in music videos like the Gorillaz’s “Slow boat to Hades”, the Corrs “Long night”, and tour graphics for “Take That “and “Aerosmith”. As a vfx supervisor he worked on shows like “Spirit Warriors” (CBBC) , Death in holy orders (BBC) and the the feature film “4321”.
