Quarks & Co : Mars Bermuda triangle

This was a cute animation. the characters were really simple jelly bean heads with lovely expressive arms. i animated the 3 characters for the explosion scene ; the celebration scene and also the side shot of the character pulling his hair out, all the other bits were added later.

Quarks and Co : Boss Stress

This was the first outing of the jelly bean heads. I really like it.I animated the doctor and the professor where they prod the little guy in the glass box; the next scene where they inspect the guy at the desk; the professor when he shows the graph and the last scene where the boss congratulates the guy on the desk.I really like the head turns on these guys- it was so easy to just shift the features over and deform the head to make them look to the side.. really simple but i think it looks great.

JaJa NeeNee

I made this video based on Ren and Stimpy- see the intro card and slight grossness- and old Hanna Barbera cartoons. These characters dont have to do as much and so are alot simpler than Ren/ Stimpy but i like them- the animation was simplified due to time contraints- i think it took about 6 weeks: little bit of research, characters, storyboard/story, animation- compositing, adding sound effect. Research was aided by JohnK's blog check it out for a great running history of animation. The band just wanted a crazy idea for the video so i had a little think and this popped up. The guitar sounded a bit like it was being played in the wilderness... i tried to fit a few things around the lyrics and the idea of having the guy use the roadkill to make music for him came up and developed...i like the penguin... check out the Buzzdees website...

ARD : Feierabend

I only did a little bit on this and it got changed later anyway, I made number 3 and 4. very simple looking but the hands on the card turn were tricky.

Goldener Windbeutel 2012

So this was the first windbeutel award that we did. The previous years animation wasnt great and was a bit lifeless. I had just one section to do- number 5, the baby cup is cute, the pram ok, the coke has lovely splashes as the sugar cubes fall in. Other wise i just learnt to key out colour from the hand sections...

Quarks and Co : Weather

I only did a little here. I made the guy speak when he had his feet on the desk and i did the bit with the telephone and the cars, very quick and simple.

Quarks and Caspers : 10 things about fasting

This was a single scene but it took a little time. I animated the shaman scene. First i looped a dancing indian guy, then added the shaman and then our presenter guy doing a cute little dance. Nice whoops and claps when he is dancing and accidentally great face as he gets dragged off screen.
