1. Based on Michael Pollan's talk "Food Rules" given at the RSA, this animation was created in the context of the RSA/Nominet Trust film competition. Using a mixture of stop-motion and compositing, our aim and challenge was to convey the topic in a visually interesting way using a variety of different food products. We made a little table top set up at home and worked on this a little over three weeks.

    Here are also some photos of Michael Pollan's Food Rules in the making

  3. In 2010 three institutes combined their collections forming Naturalis Biodiversity Center, the Dutch center of excellence for biodiversity studies. We were asked to create a film in which the past, present and future of the organization is visualized.

    With the merger Naturalis Biodiversity Center became one of the largest collections in the world, with over 37 million objects. To accentuate the variety of the collection we chose to mix several techniques. By also adding variation in design we emphasized this even more.

  5. 18 Things You Should Know About Genetics is an animated film that presents fundamental background information about genetics, as well as offering some quirky but interesting facts about DNA, genes and genetics. It was created to be an upbeat, fun educational short film to initiate and draw interest to this sometimes daunting and seemingly complex subject matter.
