A fever dream of sweat, gold and Synthwave music. “Oligarchs” is a retro-futuristic emotive concept based on photogrammetry and 3D kitbashing. It’s a love letter to the bulky low-tech aesthetics of the 80s. A synergy of naked bodies wrapped in beautiful metals. When fashion film meets Cyberpunk meets modern art. Created in collaboration with @seancrowleymusic.

I’m Cornel, a Senior Motion Graphic Designer from Cologne, Germany, now based in Australia. I use all sorts of digital techniques to create hypnotic and surrealistic animations – bold, ambitious and different. I studied Graphic Design in Dusseldorf, worked for advertising agencies in Cologne and 3D Start-Ups, TV broadcasters in Munich. I’m currently employed by an animation studio in Melbourne, where I live with my wife and three daughters.
