Lineboil - Boiling Hot Character Animation

  1. This animated music video is inspired by a heartfelt story of a relationship between two soldiers during the Second World War, called "Letter to a G.I.", first published in 1953 and republished in September 1961 by "ONE Magazine" in the USA.

    In the letter, one of the soldiers - Brian Keith - describes warmly the best moments that him and Dave (his partner) shared during the North African Campaign of 1943, when they first met. Unfortunately the story ends with a sad farewell to Dave, as he did not make it back home.

    Thanks you Young Galaxy for the awesome music!

  3. A few frames still remain for purchase here:

    "The New America" is a short animation in which every frame was created by laser engraving its unique artwork onto a solid block of maple. Once complete, the entire sequence of +800 frames was then photographed and assembled into this motion piece.

    This piece was funded by really kind friends and supporters via Kickstarter. After many unforeseen issues and delays, the entire process took about two years.

    As seen in the video, each frame is unique. Aside from the design of each frame itself being distinct, small variances that naturally occur in the laser engraving process as well as the different wood grain of each frame naturally created subtle shifts of the position of the artwork. An effect that I was particularly interested in and that could naturally be achieved in digital assembly, but that I was much more excited about re-creating with real objects.

    The music was carefully crafted by my amazing friends at World Gang -

    The abstract storyline showcased in this piece is a concoction of a variety of ideas and can perhaps be described as a union between concepts and experiments born during the Situationist movement and real life events experienced during the last few years in American society. Particularly the duality between the economic downturn and the shift in values and beliefs of many citizens.

    If you decide to purchase one of these frames, please note that I will randomly select one of them. Please, do not request a particular frame.

    * The credits at the end are for sale.

  4. The fantabulous three-minute animated thriller opens with an exciting pursuit through a forest that ends in... not a forest. A film about believing in an illusion...

    Directed by Fons Schiedon ( and produced by, In A Forest is part of a very cool, ongoing initiative by the Netherlands Film Fund, that aims to reintroduce short films back into cinemas.

    Usually, we like to give you a little behind-the-scenes feature on our productions, but in this case, the behind-the-scenes is rather uninteresting, because –insert spoiler alert here– it is part of the actual film. Fons did share with us that "strange and mysterious events" happened during production...

    “Bram came to Berlin to work on the sound design. We were both living in a sort of twilight zone state, caused by sleep deprivation, as we worked towards the deadline. We recorded sounds in an actual forest in the dead of night –it was pitch dark– in a sort of method sound-recording style. Rolling in the bushes and all.

    "Then we ran into a strange dude who played an out-of-tune trombone and looked like Jimi Hendrix. He wore a T-shirt with Hercules on it. This guy provided us with some of the sounds for the beast in the film, but didn't want anything for it.

    "Then, on our way to Amsterdam to mix the sound, the oil reservoir in Bram's Volvo exploded. The car was a total loss. After it was towed by the German breakdown service, we continued in a rental. The whole experience was in such stark contrast to the otherwise super smooth production process of the animation. For me, it was like a breath of fresh air to end in total chaos. I think it gave the film just that bit of edge that it needed."

    Mr. Fons Schiedon will be unleashing his inner comedian-presenter as the host of our Motion Design Fest in Amsterdam on 8th November 2013:
