Animation process

As the following film shows we only need 3 buttons to make Paultje & de Draak.
1. The "Make Rough" button, which is pushed by Paco
2. The "Clean up" button, which is pressed by Paulo
3. The "Make It All Cool Coloury and Shiny" button which i get to press at the end of the day


Its been while but here are some new screen dumps of the doctor suspecting something is wrong with Paultje.

Landgenoten - Jean-Louis Pisuisse & Anna Maria Sibylla Merian

Here some more tasty screen dumps of the latest episodes of Landgenoten.
We had to animate the murder of Jean Louis Pisuisse on the Rembrandt Plein in Amsterdam. Mr. Pisuisse is said to be the godfather of Dutch cabaret. He was murdered in 1927 by a jealous lover.

The other is the story of Anna Maria Sibylla Merian, who was a famous lady that documented plants and insects back in 18th century.

Floris must die!

So last week we had a lot of fun killing count Floris V in a spectacular cruel way for new episodes of 'Landgenoten'. Below are some random screenshots of the scenes. Here's a sweet taste of history:

If that wasn't enough, we were allowed to play around with some knights kicking each others shiny metal asses. View some of the awesomeness:

We hope to post the actual animation soon, which is way more rock & roll with freaky fake 3D spinning cameras and all that.

AniKey @ Annecy

Bonjour bonjour everybody! Well we're back from the Annecy 2007 festival and we had an excellent time over there.
We met lots of cool people & talented artists. We had a couple of drinks. We saw a lot of great films and shorts (and unfortunately as always a lot of crappy ones as well) . We had a couple of drinks. We had a relaxing time on the beautiful lake. We had a couple of drinks.
Check out some of the pics from last week:

Most of the week we hung out with Ka-Ching Joost and many other people from the Skunk Fu crew working for Cartoon Saloon. All wonderful artists and we updated some of the links to their blogs, so be sure to check them out.

Next year we'll definitely be there again and hopefully we'll be having our short playing in the festival as well.

We'll be posting some more pics later! Au revoir!
