In 2008 I visited Norway for the first (and so far only) time. I fell head over heels in love with the city of Oslo; the people, the places, the sights, the atmosphere...I have absolutely no idea why, but I was overwhelmed. I can't wait for the day I can travel back and again experience this wonderful environment.
In a sense this animation is my answer to Norway; a foreigner visiting a new city and wanting to adapt and join the flow. I know how pretentious it sounds, but you could really see the character of Magaba as an extension of myself. Not that I'm an orange triangle or anything...
The underground jungle was heavily inspired by the design team Yokoland (try and find the terribly obvious reference to them in the city scene...) whose studio my sister and I were lucky enough to stop by. As well as meeting Aslak and the team, we hung out with some incredible dudes from the Metronomicon Audio alumni. Again, some references to new friends are scattered throughout the city, but until someone decides to comment about them all I'll just them be our little secret ;)
I hope everyone enjoys this little animation. It's taken a long time to make (initial planning was done in January), and I've learnt so much along the way. Some of the animation really, really bugs me, but I'm seriously proud of other sequences. I know what I need to improve on, but please feel free to give me any critique you can; I want to improve! :D
