The dramedy with fantasy elements „Von Voegeln und Schrauben“ (engl.: "Screw it!") is about Revenge. Victoria, a famous art collector who wanted to expand her collection by stealing an old family heirloom, has to face the consequences of her actions.

Part of my assignment included on-set photography to get a feeling for the look of the set and the costumes. Here I was able to capture close-ups of textures that were used in the design afterwards.
Pitch Concept #1 / Both the title and the plot changed as the script evolved. This was the first design concept. As a kaleidoscope was the central trigger of a quarrel between the main characters, this draft came about first.
Pitch Concept #2 / The old script version was about two competing characters. So the second design wanted to show the two antagonists turning around each other in a methaphorical way, symbolized by the two parts of the letter "W".
