Herbstlaub is a coming-of-age-road-movie of a dot. During my studies, some colleagues and I sometimes met in the afternoon/night to sing, clear our heads from the projects and annoy other students with our voices. It was a short endeavor, but still fun.

When I decided to make my own diploma film (in panic - I had 3 weeks left, because my main focus were two other, non-personal projects), I thought it would be a nice idea to gather the "choir" one last time. Two of the singers and I did some initial musical experimentation, then Philipp came along. He did the final score, and even agreed (reluctantly? ;) ) to using our non-professional voices for it. The rest was freestyle 3D animation...

Philipp Noll plays piano, some cello and sings from time to time. He studied classical piano, music theory and new media at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart, and after that, filmscoring and sound design at the Film Academy Baden-Württemberg in Ludwigsburg.

He composes and arranges for film and television.

After an apprenticeship as a media designer, Oliver worked for a year as a sound engineer. Until 2007 he studied Animation at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. Next to some weird short films he created, he specialized in VFX and enjoys playing with simple graphics and visual compositions. These preferences and the surprising rise -and unsurprising fall- of the Animation Institute's Choir 'Hölle, Hölle, Hölle, Hölle' led to the graduation film "Autumn Leaves".
