Graduation project 2011
Designed as a possible title sequence for a fictitious documentary, this film shows a history of the title sequence in a nutshell. The sequence includes all the names of title designers who had a revolutionary impact on the history and evolution of the title sequence. The names of the title designers all refer to specific characteristics of the revolutionary titles that they designed.
This film refers to elements such as the cut and shifted characters of Saul Bass' Psycho title, the colored circles of Maurice Binder's design for Dr. No and the contemporary designs of Kyle Cooper and Danny Yount.
This title sequence refers to the following designers and their titles:
Georges Méliès - Un Voyage Dans La Lune, Saul Bass - Psycho, Maurice Binder - Dr. No, Stephen Frankfurt - To Kill A Mockingbird, Pablo Ferro - Dr. Strangelove, Richard Greenberg - Alien, Kyle Cooper - Seven, Danny Yount - Kiss Kiss Bang Bang / Sherlock Holmes

Reach out, Share and Demonstrate each other to grow and get better at what we love to do.
I loved working on this project and want to share some of its insights on how I approached to color the elements. Go to vimeo.com/sander/color to download the tutorial. Leave a comment there if you find it helpful and if you see more possibilities for improvement from your unique perspective!
Artists need to visit Pause Fest: Connect to others, to gain knowledge in order to grow. Every artist has a unique story to tell about his or her style and perspective, by allowing individual stories to be shared, Creatives grow individually and together as everybody learns from one another. This animation visualizes exactly that concept in a very abstract way.
99% of this animation is vector and continues rasterized. Every element in the scene is the same size and but put to gather in different ratios. Expression where used to keep the colors dynamic by creating a texture library. ( See tutorial )
Desktop Magazine: "Your thoughts on why motion designers are so willing to work for love and participate in festivals like this?"
Because motion designers believe in their work. They do it for the love of it. Pause Fest is a free platform to experiment with, try new things and for people to become better at what they do. Working for love is the only real satisfying element in this work and it gives you the energy to go on and make the next piece your best piece ever. Artists need a space where they can take the time to communicate to each other and get back to that core issue of why we are doing this. What are we spending your valuable time on? What are we communicating? The festival is a moment to pause! and share what you've learned with other unique designers out there in order to grow, get inspired and learn a whole lot yourself.

i've been asked to create low poly models of some landmarks of the city of leipzig together with some real estates to be put on a globe together with other buildings, trees, streets and so on to form a miniature planet of the city.
my job was basicly through once the modelling was done. however, i took some time to animate, color and compose mikroleipzig to show it to you guys. i hope you like it. ;)
These low poly characters were fun to model. The character was very minimal just to add some movement. The animation is a 30 second seamless loop, this plays twice making it a 60 seconds total. If you don't have a fireplace and need to keep warm over the holidays, download and play on loop for warmth and comfort.
