RTL CREATION produces 2nd series of advertising bumpers

Eyes & Ears of Europe

Since February 1, 2013, RTL has been airing new advertising bumpers. Because of the positive feedback for the first wave of bumpers, RTL CREATION recently produced a second series. The focus lies on RTL celebrities such as Bülent Ceylan, Cindy aus Marzahn, Kai Ebel, Frauke Ludowig, Ilka Essmüller, Inka Bause, Peter Kloeppel, Janine Steeger, Ulrike von der Groeben, Peter Zwegat, Birgit Schrowange, Daniel Hartwich and Katja Burkard. With great enthusiasm and commitment, they give the station its unmistakable appearance. The new bumpers feature short, humorous stories that take place on the virtual set of color and glass formations in the RTL design. High color brilliance and the glass materiality are a wonderful playground of virtual possibilities. The bumpers were produced in a studio in Cologne Ossendorf.

Event tip: 'It Truly Pays – The Crime Film'

Eyes & Ears of Europe

Until June 2, 2013 the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich will show the exhibition 'It Truly Pays – The Crime Film'. The crime film is among the most popular genres in both cinema and television. Often the plot revolves around the classic question: who dunnit? In every crime case, the solution to this puzzle is closely linked to the motive. What could possibly have led the figures to commit such deeds? The human motivations for committing crime have long been a source of inspiration for many well-known directors, actors and composers who have often given narratives of theft or murder genuine filmic quality. Making use of both full-length works as well as long-running or seemingly endless series, the exhibition investigates the different kinds of crime films: from the children’s crime story to the detective film and from the contract killer to team crime in which the gangsters are often depicted as appealing figures. In addition, “It Truly Pays” examines the ways in which tension and horror are produced in order to manipulate our ambivalent relationship to evil. 'It Truly Pays – The Crime Film' until 6 June 2013 at the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, Austtellungsstrasse 60, CH-8005 Zurich. Opening hours: Tuesday and Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m, Wednesday from 10 a.m. through 8 p.m., closed on Mondays.
