Some of my favorite Animated Short Films


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


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!

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!

I updated my 2010 Demo Reel. It contains shots from my short films as well as visual 3d studies.

Also, I am currently looking for an internship. Feel free to take a look at my Portfolio.

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.

New York, New York


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

Gotta love some abstract work in-between projects. I got a chocolaty feeling creating this animation. Some stills:

Desert Scenes


I’m currently working on some red, hot and dry scenes.  3D in Blender, Post in AE. These are part of my personal cinematography studies.
