Companies I worked for

Just to flex


No, at least in the European or American Market I am cheaper than most freelancers and way cheaper than ad or creative agencies.
My hourly rate matches the current price of one gram Gold, which sits at around 55 $/€. (Double that for companies with over 100 employees, and double this again for Fortune 500 companies.)
This way, the value stays roughly the same over decades.

If it is necessary, to finish a project on deadline, to work on Saturday and Sunday, I will also charge twice as much for these two days.

Yes, I see no reason, not to. I am also open to work with companies from Hong Kong, Taiwan and Arzach.

I use all kinds of Software packages.
But primarily, I use Adobe Creative Cloud and Blender.
I use a Computer, That Ive Built myself, 2 big random Monitors from Samsung and Peripherals from Logitech.
If I create a video which needs a voice-over, I create a Voice-over, but only as Layout for orientation and timing. But I am happy to organize a Professional Speaker for my customers.

I can do more or less anything from creating ideas and Mood boards over Storyboards, to the final product.

Yes, but in my experience in special effects some people heavily underestimate, how long things can take, and I am only a single person not a studio.

The idea for the name came from a Creative Director I worked with a long time ago, who is also known as “16by9” or “Komplexhausen” (people who know, know) basically because my name is Marc and compared to other people he worked with I was technologically many years ahead.
Just good, that my name isn’t Mike.


I don’t work for free.
In my experience companies, who ask questions like this neither have money nor interesting projects.
And even do I think it is ridiculous till a certain degree since no one would sit down into a restaurant and would ask if he can, could get an appetizer for free.
I can understand the wish to test something out, before buying it.
So let me explain why this doesn’t make sense at this point.

This here is the Golden Triangle, one of the fundamentals of Project management. The core statement of this illustration is, that Scope of Work, Time and Cost are the Main factors for quality.
Or in other words, with this you don’t compare people, you compare the time they are willing to put in without any return.
