Philippe was asking me to create a portfolio-film to present his commercial and noncommercial works in a different way. He thought about unfolding objects which creates a small world out of cardboard rather than the a lot seen Ken Burns Effect. For the intro I came up with the idea to build an amusement-park with a stage in the middle of the scene. The upcoming city represents his commercial work and the universe afterwards his side projects.


We tried two versions: a black & white and a colored version.
