This animation is commissioned by SFT (The Norwegian Pollution Control Authority) and explains how The Emission Trading Scheme works and how you as an individual can contribute.
Working closely with SFT we wrote the script, narrowing down the subject whilst still maintaining the key elements of the system. For the team, this was a challenging but also very interesting and educational part of the job as there was a significant mix of competence. We also wanted to keep it humorous without jeopardizing the seriousness and importance of the message.
Next step was finding a style to make it both appealing and easy accessible for the audience. The film was not to exceed six minutes so we needed to keep a light and entertaining style where we had room for small humorous elements. We started off drawing on paper, moving on to Illustrator, firstly focusing on characters and then making other elements that were needed to tell the story. The elements were animated in Cinema 4D and finalized in After Effects.
This animation has two versions, one Norwegian and one English. The English version shown here features the actor Terry Carter who to our amusement and admiration was one of the original actors on Battlestar Galactica.
The film is produced prior to COP15, the United Nations Climate Change Conference, and hopefully SFT will inspire other nations to both inform their citizens and to create easy systems for individuals to buy carbon units and to make a difference.
This is an edit of my favorite moments from the Treat Me release animation I made. It's basically a a cut down version of two 60 second animations with a few personal tweaks that i didn't have time to make before delivery.
Sleepless nights and copious amounts of espresso got me through the 3 week production time.

Thinking of steering away from 3d for a moment, at the same time expressing our creativity in different styles of animation and showing what we would also love to work on , we have stumbled upon a new idea during a morning coffee.
With every next sip and smile the story and characters evolved and we found ourselves laughing more and more imagining loony animals puking each other out wanting to become vegetarians. From the first concepts of our silly new animal friends and all the way to everything else: coloring , animation , music and sounds , we were constantly tweaking story and characters back and forth to make good idea even better.
So, with coffee stains all over our desks from bursts of laughter and 4 week behind us, we proudly present you “Be a vegetarian”. We have enjoyed working on this piece and we hope you will enjoy watching it.
