  3. I worked closely with Director Piet Kroon in the role of Production Designer on this short. The design required that the main characters were recognisable across the various sequence styles driven by the design of luggage labels. The animation crew were scattered across the world so we cast actors for each of the main characters with film for movement and gestural reference (not for rotoscope).
    Produced by Illuminated Film Co. Financed by Channel 4 & Dutch Film Foundation.
    The film was BAFTA nominated in 1998. Grand prix winner at the L.A. World Animation Celebration. L.A Film Critics Award 1998. Audience and Grand Prix winner at Espino, Portugal.

  5. "In a sophisticated, unexpected and humorus way this film tells a story of the impact the information society has on people today."

    - jury of FIA Stockholm 2010

    "A television set attached to a small parachute falls through a glass ceiling and changes the way people live and let themselves be influenced. From the small magical screen, practically everything can be transferred until a wolf starts taking things into his own paws and changes the laws of gravity into something completely different. The Dadaistic style of mutual association creates a dream-like atmosphere of absurd humor."
