The Making of Celebrity Deathmatch Germany

Now German celebrities are ready to go toe to toe for the first time. The Film Bilder studio has made eleven ninety-second versions of the Celebrity Deathmatch cult series. The MTV shows star Germany´s top chat-show hosts Stefan Raab and Harald Schmidt, DJs Sven Vaeth and Westbam, German chancellor Gerhard Schröder against foreign minister Joschka Fischer, and many others. The show stays true to the original American version. MTV Animation in New York provided the puppets and digital backgrounds. The Film Bilder team in Stuttgart was responsible for all other aspects of the production ­ scripting, sound, props, animation and postproduction. The shows were directed by Andy Kaiser. The series was made between early January and late March 2001. The short animations were first broadcast by MTV Germany in June 2001.
