Viacom, one of the biggest companies in the tv and film industry, contacted us to create 8 animated loops to play on the entrance hall of the company's offices in order to celebrate the start of Spring in New York.
The 8 loops are totally different from one another and are made from a blend between 2d illustrations and pictures of characteristic places in the city. The idea is to show you what we all want to do when the most charming season comes to the city: take a bike ride, go out on the lake with a new love, enjoy a bohemian afternoon on the subway, drink coffee and read a book in the middle of the day wihout being cold, have a picnic at Central Park, or even play with your boat at the lake.
Enjoy the Spring, New Yorkers!

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!

Cupidiculous(2014) is a motion graphic project fusing 2D cel-animation and 3D techniques together. It conveys a humor story about Cupid, who makes Adam and Eve fall in love. But this act of love leads to overpopulation, overconsumption and global warming. So he has to find the way to fix these problems. Most characters and elements have been done in 3D but rendered as 2D flat vector look with poppy pastel, splashy and heightened color schemes. Then added more 2D liquid speed lines by drawing frame by frame. Even though laughter is the major objective, but Cupidiculous also delivers critical messages covertly. More or less audiences will get that with absolutely enjoyment.
