Red Bull Soapbox Racer

Our team created the flash-game Red Bull Soapbox Racer to accompany the real Red Bull Soapbox event. Designing your own soapbox racers and race tracks you can compete with your friends online.
				The game won several international awards. I designed the various themes, including landscapes, 3D obstacles, street surfaces and sample cars. All graphics have a deliberate do it yourself handmade feeling. This video was made to give a quick introduction into the game. I was in charge of the entire production, including storyboard, capturing, animation and video editing. Soapbox textures are mapped on 3D planes in Flash/ Papervision. I built many 3D objects in Blender that were imported to Flash/Papervision. Some of the objects are 2D integrated in 3D space. 3D detail. More 3D and 2D objects. The themes reflect the current location of the Red Bull Soapbox event, in this case the Alps. The City of Johannesburg. Historic Jerusalem. The sun setting over Istanbul. To promote the game I designed several online banners that include very short video sequences. The banners were adapted to different formats.

Falling Walls Conference

Falling Walls, the Berlin conference on future breakthroughs in science and society took place on November 9th 2009, the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall. During the conference about 35 trailers introduce the speakers. The layout of the conference program is square. Red and concrete-grey reflect the corporate identity of the Einstein Foundation and this particular event. The program pages are flapped to symbolise the wall falling. Examples of schedule and speaker page. Question sheet to be used for the later discussion. All the handouts were put in a bag made from recycled material. Name batch, bag, invitations, magazine and banner adverts were also part of the project.

Red Bull Mediamix

Red Bull asked us to create Mediamix, a multimedia platform for video, photo and audio content recorded at different Red Bull events. Video view. Enlarged video view. Photo slideshow. There were several user options for the media content. Other Red Bull content was strongly linked to the Mediamix platform.
        Media files could be integrated into articles and event microsites. Additionaly we created a very easy-to-use application to create video clips from bookmarked media.

Freestyler Microsite

This Flash microsite features three Red Bull freestyle athletes. Information and media are presented in a young and playful way. I decided on an informal down and dirty style, relating to the rough nature of the sport itself. Supported by clickable objects and videos, the user can discover stories and get further information from experts. Enlarged video player.
