Some of my favorite Animated Short Films

March 31, 2012 2 Comments »

Here are some highly inspirational and brilliantly executed animated short films, that I find some of the best ever made. I have watched them several times, and get back to them every once in a while, if I’m looking for inspiration.

You can watch all of these Short Films on Youtube or similar sites. I’m not sure if all of them have been officially released to the public, so I won’t link them here.

Demo Reel 2012

March 22, 2012 No Comments »

I have done an overhaul of my Reel. It contains some cinematographic studies, as well as lots of shots from my Short Films “The Risk not Taken”, “In Between-Ends”, “Evolution”. There are also some shots from the so far publicly unreleased short film “The Risk not Taken”, that some might like to catch a glimpse of ;-)

As always Blender was my main 3D Tool. Some Shots were even rendered in Blenders new Renderengine: Cycles. Yay!

I’m also on the job hunt now, so exciting times ahead!

Feel free to get in touch!

Yes, in the age of the internet it’s hard to believe, but books can be very valuable too. I just finished reading some fabulous books I can recommend to anyone interested in Filmmaking.
Here goes:

Also here are some more books I find worth mentioning:

If you know of any good ones, let’s hear them!

Preparing for FMX

FMX. Which is an awesome experience, so I’ve heard. This year I’ll be attending it for the first time, and I’m very much looking forward to it :-)

So far I’ve managed to get a fresh batch of visiting cards, some hundred of them, though I don’t believe I’ll pass all of them ;-) and am thinking about producing some Demo Reel Dvds with nice cases, and maybe a kind of “portfolio-book” thingy, to show off, when there are no computers around.

The program is quite impressive, and I’ll do my best to suck in all of those interesting facts :-D

See you there!

Stormy and wet

After all those hot and dry desert scenes, this was inevitable ;-) As always, teasing with some stills from an animation. I’ll wrap everything up in a new Reel by the end of June, so stay tuned.

After some trouble with the College renderfarm, the cluster was so nice as to finish my frames today. The tall thin thing in the middle should be the Crysler Building. Not sure yet about the rest ;-)
I started this scene a while back, but tuned it recently. enjoy
