A bit about Me

My name is Daniel Ahmakov, and I am a filmmaker with deep experience in animation and video compositing. I am currently located in Cologne/Germany, and I offer post-production services for your film, TV advertisement, image films, explanatory video, logo animation, language adaptation, or music videos.

Mein Name ist Daniel Ahmakov, und ich bin ein Filmemacher mit großer Erfahrung in Animation und Video-Compositing. Ich bin derzeit in Köln ansässig und biete Ihnen die Postproduktion für Ihren Film, TV-Werbung, Imagefilm, Erklärungsvideo, Logoanimation, Sprachadaption oder Musikvideo an.

I create moving images (motion graphics), 2D or 3D environments, that simulate motion by each image showing the next in a gradual progression of steps. I have the experience and expertise to develop and create effective and entertaining animations for TV openers, websites, presentations, video production, and any other media.

Video Compositing is the art of combining different elements from separate sources to produce the illusion of a single complete image. I am devoted to seamlessly insert elements into your live-action footage. I offer all of the classic compositing crafts like 3D compositing, match-move, chroma-key, rotoscope, talent retouch, clean up, and rig removal.

Ich erstelle bewegte Bilder (Motion Graphics), 2D- oder 3D-Umgebungen, die Bewegung simulieren, indem jedes Bild das nächste in einer allmählichen Abfolge von Schritten zeigt. Ich habe die Erfahrung und das Fachwissen, um effektive und unterhaltsame Animationen für TV-Opener, Websites, Präsentationen, Videoproduktionen und andere Medien zu entwickeln und zu erstellen.
