I started playing around with some drawings of mine, to see if I could bring them to life. This was a childhood dream of mine; when as a kid, I would just draw my own world and gaze at the paper, imagining it started to move. The kick and thrill of making animations is worth every hour spend on it.
It was a very slow process, also since I did not know much about the technique behind it, as I am still learning and eager to know more, I love the simplicity and feel of stop-motion. It also reminds me of my childhood.
The song 'Keep Me Home' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cd3P1NIgnH4). I wrote and sang this song for popular Dutch DJ/producers-group called "Kraak&Smaak", some years ago. This is how I will sing it, when I perform solo.
I have been a songwriter for more then 15 years now and this video-making makes me hungry for more! This one will be the first of many, many to follow hopefully... at the same time looking forward to collaborations with the pro's or similar hobbyists like myself, who just LOVE the whole process of doing a short film like this. A situation where the video is the source of the songwriting, also excites me. So bring it on! ... it all depends on if the video speaks to me of course ;), but feel free to contact me, for songwriting, perhaps acting, collaborating on a videooo... lets get productive!!! :-D !!
