A story book unfolds the incredible tale of a pair of identical twins who, after one of them embarking on an intergalactic journey at near the speed of light, age at vastly different rates. Intrigued by the seemingly impossible situation, the narrators invite the audience into a lively chat on special relativity concepts, such as time dilation and nonequivalent reference frames, that are the culprits behind Einstein’s famous Twin Paradox.
I would like to thank everyone that has taken the time to watch and appreciate my animation. It really is a great honor and incredibly motivating. I'm excited about creating new work and sharing it with you all!
My graduation project. I wanted to create something that would not only be fun to watch, but also tell a bit more about the process of animating. Sometimes your ideas and creations seem to have a mind of their own, and although this might actually be a good thing, you just get frustrated because it gets further and further away from your original plan...
I animated the whole thing in Toonboom first, then printed everything and cut out a large part. Then, using stop-motion technique, I re-created the animation again. This allowed for me to show a bit of the huge amount of work that goes into animating and it gave me a way to make the animator's presence a bit more tangible.
I hope you will enjoy this one!

Norway has recently reached 5 million inhabitants and the capital is growing rapidly. The city scene in Oslo is steadily thickening with taller buildings, more people and the never-ending construction sites. Being by far the most populated city in Norway with 613 000 inhabitants, most Norwegians look to Oslo as a major capital. However, if one compares Oslo to other international capitals, Oslo only ranks as the 112th largest. Oslo is indeed a major capital, just a small one…
The production of this video was made out of 76 940 single photos, edited as a video after a lot of work. The video was filmed under the warmest march month ever in Oslo. I have never been on so many rooftops as I had the week I filmed this, a really fun experience. I used tilt-shift lenses to create the miniature effect
Thanks to all that helped out getting me access to rooftops, apartments and other high places!
Special thanks to Svein Jacobsen, Bente Isaksen, Terje Mork, Petter Nordahl, Annette Grøsland, Andreas Moe and the security guards at Oslo S.
Finally a huge thanks to Christian Magnussen for awesome color correction help in post production.
