A city, going backwards in time…

An animation produced where the client herself appears in a modern city and slowly goes back in time to see the changes through it’s long history.

My client didn’t want any audio on delivery so I’ve added some with the help of the following users from Freesound: tigersound, freqman, erh, edifield, juskiddink, maj061785, sorohanro, dj-chronos, stereostereo, beatsbycasper, klanbeeld, robinhood76, swiftoid, owl, johnnyfarmer, rsilverira-88, jarredgibb, dheming, kyster_, opticreep and speedygonzo.

Special thanks for the main score to Kevin MacLeod from incompetech.com – highly recommended for free music.

“Tinte Blut” Book trailer

An animation to promote the release of a new book – the brief was to create a moody, mysterious and sinister trailer for the launch across facebook and other social media of “Tinte Blut.”

Specific shot direction from the client but with loads of scope for visual development, this project was a mixture of 3D and 2D with hand-drawn textures.

Blender, Photoshop, Clip Studio, Premiere.

Client: Milan Grunewald.

Rijksmuseum app animations.

Contracted by Manchester based Centrescreen Productions to produce a series of animations for a guided tour app for the reopening of the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.

Using items and high resolution scans of art work, including access to Rembrant sketches for one of his most famous works; Der Staalmeesters, this series of animations was created as part of an interactive tour guide app for visitors to the refurbished Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.

“Noir” animation

“NOIR” Animation (waiting for audio) from Antmerker on Vimeo.

 This is the first of three animations produced for musician Sam Biggs (www.sambiggs.co.uk) to showcase his musical talents. The project involves producing genre based animations, this one Noir (obviously).

Lots of fun; shadows, gangsters, femme fatales and brutal shootings.

Backgrounds for the animation are all modelled in 3D and the characters are all hand-drawn.
