By combining video with other media, fettFilm (set designers and video artists Momme Hinrichs and Torge Möller) creates multifaceted works of art.
They have designed more than 100 productions worldwide, from the initial stage to the final presentation, in close cooperation with important directors including Bernd Eichinger, Doris Dörrrie, Achim Freyer, Andreas Homoki, Stefan Herheim, David Pountney, Philipp Stölzl and Susanne Linke, among others. They are now also increasingly responsible for designing entire sets and they directed Verdi's Giovanna d'Arco at the Opera Bonn with great success in 2014.
In addition to the Salzburger, Bayreuther and Bregenzer Festspiele, the two artists have worked at the Staatsoper unter den Linden Berlin, the Deutsche and Komische Oper Berlin, the Wiener Staatsoper, the Theatre an der Wien, the Semperoper Dresden, the Bayrische Staatsoper, the Deutsche Oper am Rhein, the Hamburgische Staatsoper, the Glyndebourne festival, the Teatro Liceu Barcelona, the Opera Oslo, the Opera Copenhagen, L’Opera nationale de Paris and many other European theaters and festivals. They have also successfully realized projects in North America, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and India to great critical acclaim.
Critics describe their work with attributes ranging from “exciting and beautiful” to “intelligent,” “accomplished” and “brilliant”. “One rarely sees such great video projections”; the artists succeed in “incorporating high quality video-art into the choreographic structure”, says the Hamburger Abendblatt. Die Welt writes: “fettFilm’s video-art deserves extra praise”, and the Bayerischer Rundfunk (Bavarian radio station) described their work at the Bregenz Festival: “Projections so perfect and rich in content have not been seen here before. Thus, they have opened a door in the scenic progress of music theater."
At the beginning of 2006, Momme Hinrichs and Torge Möller gained attention for their installation Signs Fiction. It was displayed on the mediafaçade “SPOTS” at Potsdamer Platz in Berlin where, among others, artists like Jonathon Monk and Terry Gilliam have exhibited their work. From 2010 to 2015, fettFilm created three show designs for the tours of the famous German musician Marius-Müller Westernhagen.
Responsible for set design and projections on Wagners „Flying Dutchman“ fettFilm won togehter with Mara Kurotschka the Taras Schewtschenko price of the Ukraine in 2014.
