Hannes Gerl

Hi!

I love pixels. I really do.

Red ones, Blue ones 

and even the Greenish.

They`ve been around for 

as long as I can think back.

They are my friends. Sometimes. 

 

I can change their colors.

Dim them. Poke them around.

Make them glim, shine, shout & dance.

 

This is what I do for a living.

Lovely. Isn`t it?

WORK EXPERIENCE

Hannes Gerl (born 1978 in Germany) is a VFX artist best known for his work on complex shots and liquid effects.

In the past 12 years he participated in more than 70 professional projects.

Among them some with Germany`s top directors like Matthias Zentner or Ole Peters, creators of iconic commercials such as ETI`s chocolate angel or Adelholzeners spot featuring Phillip Lahm

 

Hannes also gained experience in the field of exhibitions, shows and events like the IAA, the IFA or the Detroit Motorshow.

His experiences in VR reach back to 2007, where he worked at mBox on the German Telecom exhibition booth.

He also was given the opportunity to take part in German and Spanish feature films like Phillip Stoelzl`s 'Goethe!' 

or J.R. Calderas 'Promoción Fantasma'.

 

In 2006 Hannes started lecturing at designated schools like 'The Animation Workshop''Truemax' or 'Animation Hagenberg'.

Over the years he enjoyed teaching and training many interns and junior artists at different companies.

 

Hannes learned at the 'German Film School for Digital Production' where he graduated with honors as Digital Artist in 2004.

Subsequently he started working as a freelancer in Berlin. Later on he moved to Barcelona, Spain, where he enjoyed living for eight fantastic years. After starting a small family on his own he relocated to Munich, working from there as freelance senior/lead fx td and 3d concept artist. 

 

Hannes likes to talk of himself in third person.
