Video for RLI goes international

Recently we have made a video and some illustrations for RLI (Raden voor leefomgeving en Infrastructuur). The video summarizes a very complex rapport, that the RLI has presented to the Dutch government. The RLI is an council that gives advise to our government, in this case about water security and managment.
They liked the video so much that it will be translated so they can show it international on congresses.

you can watch the video here: http://www.rli.nl/video/video-tijd-voor-waterveiligheid

'The 3D-Machine'now available on Nintendo 3DS!

Nintendo acquired our short film 'The 3D-Machine' for the Nintendo 3DS.
Our short is available in amazing glasses-free 3D viewing! For everyone who ownes a 3DS in North and South America. Just go with your device to the 3DS videochannel to watch our film, Have Fun!

This is what some people who had seen it on the 3DS said about it:

One of nintendo video's best. nuff said

fantastic story. fantastic animation. decent 3D. we need shorts like this more often

The 3D Machine is one of the longest videos they've put onto Nintendo Video so far, and it has a great 3D effect throughout the whole mini-film. I'd say it's definitely one of the best videos I've seen on the App

This is the longest, 3D animated short yet on Nintendo Video, clocking in at over 7 minutes. It’s pretty good actually and the 3D effect is really well done. Definitely worth checking out.

3D machine was amazing. Great 3D and story. Definitely my favorite one so far!

Recently we have made this commercial for Zendium Toothpaste, for Unilever.
We did all the animation, the motion tracking, and the compositing.
The drawings of the mouths were designed by Martijn Rijven.
the live action was shot by CZAR , and graded by Framelab.
The commercial agency was Being There, and this job was brought to us by our agents at Shop Around. Working with so many parties wasn't always easy, but the result came out very nice!

Protesting @ Mars der Beschaving

This weekend we have been protesting against the cuts that our government announced on funding of Arts and Culture, a serious matter! Many institutes, galleries and artists will not survive this ruthless cut. Together with a few thousand others we did a long nightly March, and we protested on the Malieveld in The Hague. Next morning I was on the news.
