On March 25th 1996 J.P. Reemtsma was kidnapped from his home and was hold hostage for 33 days. How such dramatic circumstances hit the family – especially his 13 year old son Johann – what it does to their relationship and how they were pushed to react, is the central narrative.
Wir sind dann wohl die Angehörigen – Title Design Pitch
I had the possibility to pitch an opening and endcredits design-concept for the latest arthouse movie from Hans-Christian Schmid: “Wir sind dann wohl die Angehörigen.” A story based on true events, adapted from the book with the same title from Johann Scheerer.
This project was a commissioned pitch where the layout results eventually were not selected for the final movie. The displayed titles are draft titles from the initial pitch brief and represent not the final, approved titles or text panels. The footage and insights are shown with the kind permission of the production company (23/5 Filmproduktion). Nevertheless, the publication is made solely on my responsibility. 23/5 is not liable for the content.
