Animation Ruling the Nation

  1. A town on the borderlands of Texas. A place out of time. A desert where strange lights dance in the night sky. A mecca for lovers of minimalist art. A landscape of lost horses, freaks and food trucks. And then there’s the giant lemon. An award winning film by The Brothers McLeod.

  2. As part of Blue Zoo's long-running animated short films programme, a brief was sent out to everyone in the studio to pitch an idea to tell an emotional, human story, while experimenting with the physical optics of projecting CG animation.

    Blue Zoo Animation Director Ben Steer pitched the idea of Mamoon, which proceeded to win the company-wide studio vote, and went into production.

    Over the next year, he directed, filmed and collaborated with other artists to make this beautiful short.

    You can watch Ben talk through how the film was made, in the making-of film:

    Director: Ben Steer
    Original Music: Matthew Wilcock for Zelig Sound
    Animation: Phil Brooks, Ben Steer
    Additional Animation: Ricky Honmong, Sarah Caisley, Simon Taylor, Steve Kimbrey
    Compositing: Negar Bagheri, Elaine Thomas
    Character Design: Marylou Mao
    Rigging: Leo Blackmur
    Modelling: Leo Blackmur, Lee Bowditch

  4. I was invited by directors Daniel Hanai and Bruno Carneiro to create this opening scene for their short documentary "A Valsa Do Pódio" ("The Podium Waltz"). The movie tells the story of Terezinha Guilhermina, a visually impaired brazilian runner who, with the help of her guide Guilherme Santana, won two gold medals in the London 2012 Paralympics, and since then is the world record holder in the 100 meters sprint.

    This scene follows the way her guide described the opening ceremony of the Paralympics to her, as they walked through the Olympic Stadium. For that I created about 1400 black and white watercolors, that were photographed and then composed and colored digitally. I tried to create this atmosphere where shapes and sounds emerge as they come to the character's attention, and also to bring some of the joy and wonder of the moment.

    Year: 2013. Please watch the other animations I created for the movie here: and the making of here:
