The TV format »Forum« revitalizes the democratic tradition of round tables and political circles where the current issues can be discussed eye to eye. The metaphor of the circle is picked up formally as well as visually. Typographic animations symbolize the flow of information and the exchange of knowledge and opinions. Actors have animated discussions and constitute round table talks that create areal islands. Achievement: As an Art Director of the ZDF, Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen, I realized this opener in cooperation with Velvet Mediendesign. Art Direction and Design, Supervision of Shooting and Postproduction.
