For more than ten years, Prof. Falk Schuster has worked continuously on projects and commissions for renowned television stations and media companies, but also for cultural institutes and business enterprises. Several of his projects have already won awards.
After successfully completing his degree in design in 2009 at the Burg Giebichenstein Academy of Art in Halle an der Saale, Falk Schuster had already accepted teaching assignments on topics such as "Visual Storytelling" or "Fundamentals of Animation" at this university. Professor Schuster is also no stranger to the Faculty of Architecture and Design at Hochschule Wismar, University of Applied Sciences. Even before his appointment, he was a lecturer on the subject of "Animation" at the Hochschule Wismar, University of Applied Sciences, and also for around six years at the Munich University of Television and Film.
Together with Alina Cyranek, he founded the company "hug films" in 2018, which produces documentaries and animated films and was selected by the start-up initiative MEDIAstart of the Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung in 2021/22.
It is particularly important for our new professor to bring his practical experience into the teaching of the Communication Design and Media degree programme. We wish him every success.
