It took blood, sweat and a lot of paint, but we are very happy with the result. To the right you can see our new intern, Geoffrey Armfield. A talented and enthusiastic animation student from the Willem de Kooning Academy.
If you are in the neighborhood don't hesitate to visit us.

Our new address is:

get your plane cancelled, ' Ka-ching ' -style

Last week we flew back from a great trip in Annecy.
Unfortunally our flight got cancelled, and we had to wait 24 hours to get another one.
Luckily for us the Flightcompany arranged a stay for us in the 5-star Crowne Plaza Hotel in Geneva, where we could enjoy lots of luxury, swimming pool, sauna, steamroom, good food etc.
Just like home!

We're going to Annecy Animation Festival again this year!
say Hi if you see us!

Storyboards are finished!

Phew! Today we finished the last storyboard for 'De Grobbebollen'. (the tv show we direct for de Efteling) It was quite a job; 26 episodes of 2,5 minutes, which more than an hour! It was great to do, and wonderful to see these how these storyboards develop to the finished episodes. Our work is not finished of course. There's three episodes to be animated. And then we are still busy with post production. We expect all episodes to be totally finished by the first week of July.

Hard Boiled Chicken

In 2006 Erik and I both did two internships, on at the Cartoonsaloon in Ireland and one at Animationworks a small studio in Dordrecht, here in Holland ran by Arjan Wilschut.
We really liked his style and were strongly convinced Arjan worked in some sort of a digital way, because of his strong 'vectorline-ish'-style.
But we were very wrong, this man draws everything by hand on paper, even the double (thick) outlines are drawn by hand!
We learned a lot from Arjan and we got to work a bit on his film 'Hard Boiled Chicken'
recently he started a blog with loads of nice work. Luckily we're still doing some nice work for him every now and then, watch out for his next film 'Farmer Jack'.
Here is the short 'Hard Boiled Chicken' which we got to work on back then, and which also won a whole bunch of festivals.
