NBA E02 – The creative process

BAM! Lightning in a bottle, divine intervention, happy coincidence or the power of the creative process? Follow me as we dive into the nuts and bolts of concept development – and hear me rant about my process and what gets my creative juices ticking…

Update

It has been a crazy spring with baby, No Budget Animation, a lot of work and the ground work towards my first feature in collaboration with Petter Lindblad and Snowcloud Films in Sweden. We were selected to present at Cartoon Movie and the Financing Forum in Malmoe. Hopefully we will get the funding set over the summer, but lets see. Financing can be a devious snake…

Below is a screenshot of the little promo we did for the project. Not a final design in any way, but I promise you it’ll be great!

No Budget Animation (Yeah)

Join me down the path of insanity as I ramble on about “No Budget Animation”, the past, what to do, other peoples work –
and what I have planned for this series…

Oh, and don’t be afraid to share it with your friends and family. Its really important stuff, this!

Layouts

I just fell over these poster layouts I did a few years ago for our friends over at One Two Films for their feature Die Frau hinter der Wand. The designs are thickly inspired by Saul Bass meets Frank Miller. I remember being pretty astounded on how fast it was to get pretty decent results in that style – although it also helped that the visuals of film contained quite a lot of iconic elements.

TED-ed

My dear friend Mette Ilene Holmriis just finished this beautiful piece of animation for TED-ed about “The evolution of animal genitalia”. She has been chipping away on this beauty for several months on her own. And the end result is super charming! I am super proud of her. I helped a bit with animating a few sperm-cells, a spider and a few other tiny things.

 

Error 404

I had a bunch of art- and animation-hungry kids hanging out at my place today talking about how I work, the creative process and how to survive as an artist. Just for the heck of it (and because it is cool) we did a photogrammetric scan of one of the students. When you have 11 youngsters sitting in the background it is pretty sure that something is bound to move during the process of taking the pictures. But somehow we ended up with a couple of pretty interesting images as a result of ‘the living backdrop’.

And a little added play with textures…
