Internship at Mac Guff Ligne

 
The view from the studio terrace

Recently, I finished a 3.5 month internship at Mac Guff Ligne in Paris, France. It is a huge studio and I was in their commercial department, working on a pilote for a (potentially feature lenght) 3D production. I mainly did storyboarding and digital layout, setting up cameras, timing shots and movements. I also did some tests for the animation and rigs. This included animating different cycles, takes, and even a basic animation run-down of the entire film so that the digital layout could work as an animatic presentable to the client.
How much of my work will see the light of day is a question of where the client wants to take his project but the studio seemed happy with my work. I can, however, show you this little photo from my work station; appearently my analogue approach to storyboarding raised a few eyebrows.


I am back in Denmark for now in order to attend my final exams and graduate from The Animation Workshop.

I Have Started A Webcomic!

I am currently interning at a company in Paris. The cultural differences between Denmark and France often make for some pretty comedic observations. This sparked the idea of a webcomic about some of my ironic endeavors in everyday life.

Whole

Better (2 months) late than never.
Here is the final National Danish Film School animation graduation movie, "Whole", which I did some of the animation on. The director, William Reynish, is a very talented man who thrives on impulse, which means that a handful of the shots I've animated got cut from the final movie -- as is to be expected, and to the benefit of the overall story- and entertainment value of the film. The film has been very well recieved: It's been featured on shotoftheweek and staff picked by Vimeo while the film magazine Ekko wrote: "brilliantly told through simpel yet visually impressive 3D-animation" (5/6 stars).
