Musicvideo Analogpunk 2.0 by Judith Holofernes feat. Maeckes

I had the pleasure to create a musicvideo paying tribute to some of the most classic video games for the wonderful german singer Judith Holofernes. The song, #Analogpunk, is about a nerdy girl falling in love with a completely non-digital guy. Judith's idea was to tell the story by making him and her the protagonists of classic games. The result is a journey through video-game history, quoting some of the most interesting games from the 80's and 90's.

Stranger Things Chiptunes Edition Cover Art

I recently had the pleasure to create the cover art for a Chiptunes-remix of the outstanding "Stranger Things" soundtrack, created by Gruber. I adore both the series and its 80's appeal and bringing the great original cover to an Amiga image (320 pixels in width, 32 colours) was a dreamtask to me.
It received coverage in several online-zines, including Gizmodo Japan and a mention by Hideo Kojima himself.
You can listen to the soundtrack here. Enjoy!

Television Documentary

In 2016, Tassilo pixeled and animated over 20 minutes of video sequences for a german television documentary about the history of computers. Pixeled mostly in about 320x180, 32 colours and uprendered to 4k, these clips may be the among world's first high-resolution-low-resolution movies.

This gave Tassilo the wonderful opportunity to pixel the heroes of computing history: Steve Jobs, Bill Gates. Tim Berners-Lee, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Steve Wozniak and Ron Wayne and many, many more, alongside retro-computers such as the Apple I, Zuse Z3, Commodore PET and others.
