Animation Shorts

History Of Pets Shortfilm. 2013 Production company: NIAF. Netherlands Technique: 2D Animation/Mixed Media A black humoured requiem for all the childhood pets, who found their end in the most curious of circumstances. One by one they get revisited as the main character takes a trip down memory lane. AWARDS: • BEST IN SHOW at New York Animation Block Party • AUDIENCE AWARD at London International Animation Festival I wrote, designed, animated and directed this short, that got selected at 50 international festivals, including ANNECY, HAFF, ANIMA, ITFS, KROK & ANIMA MUNDI… Vimeo-staffpick, and featured on international animationblogs, and gathered around 35K views. “Sometimes there are beautiful gems in modern animation. This week for example, the new animated film by iZeMo came out in the cinema.”- Oscar-winner Cilia Van Dijk History Of Pets   _____________________________________________________________________________ He&Sea Shortfilm. 2016 Production company: S.O.I.L Technique: 2D Animation He & Sea is my latest film, co-directed with Pieter Vanluffelen It […]

world premiere of He & Sea at Anima Festival in Brussels! It started out as a few post-it notes with some squiggly lines on them. Add 4 years, an amazing co-director and animator (Pieter Vanluffelen), a passionate producer (S.O.I.L.), groundbreaking software developed solely for this film (Ultra Pictura), fantastic compositing (Fabrique Fantastique), a beautiful soundtrack (Senstudio), a spectacular crew of very talented people, buckets of blood, sweat and tears, and the result is He & Sea. This poetic creational epic about perseverance and passion, which is crafted with the same traits, premiered at the prestigious Brussels ANIMA Festival on Monday 8 February at 7.30pm at Studio 4 in the Flagey building. A second screening will take place on Thursday 11 February At 5.30pm at Studio 5. Hope to see you there! “an abstract gem…”
