I wrote the Apple Tree poem as an amusing, creepy and certainly offbeat bedtime story.
I've been working on a puppet-building test over the last 2 days. An animatable puppet for my horror comedy Under The Apple Tree.
Hieronymus the movie is on to the next stage! The production is supported by the Dutch Filmfund -da best filmfund in da world!- and we'll start storyboarding very soon. Here's an early sketch from yours truely.
A measly little worm finds himself homeless, for all the apples are taken by other worms. He’s an outcast in the stormy night, until he discovers the biggest apple of them all. It’s vacant and it’s… mobile!
Live Apple Cam
Once our studio is up and running we will present our daily toil over the Apple Cam. A live webcam that shows you the setbuilder, DP and animtator at work on Under The Apple Tree. Frame by frame by frame. By frame. It's a slow process. Just check in every now and then.
The Phantom Of The Cinema (2008)
The Phantom Of The Cinema is an animated short film in which we, the theater audience, get an indiscreet look behind the screen of the cinema. The film suddenly jams and breaks, allowing us to see what happens behind the projection screen when everything is going horribly wrong.
Just created a short CG animation for the opening ceremony of Rozet, a beautiful new building in the city of Arnhem that is home to the heritage center, the library, the art library, the art center and the community college. Our former queen Beatrix (now princess Beatrix, or Bea, as we like to call her) fired up this baby by the press of a button. What an honor!
