Seymour Bits - Put It Back Down
Directed by: Michiel ten Horn & Maarten Berkers
When Seymour Bits a.k.a. Bas Bron asked us to make a video for his track Put It Back Down, we asked him what it was about. He replied; “ Booze, clubbing, shaking asses, dancing buttocks and maybe some tits?“ And that is exactly what we created. Although, our interpretation of it.
This resulted in a bizarre multicolour trip that formed a round faceless chicken trapped in a wonderland called delirium. We worked with four different animators on this project each living in another city. So there was a big challenge to keep the look and feel in the same style as the original artworks made by Michiel. We found our inspiration by watching old animations such as He-man and the work of John K. which we really liked when we were kids. We tried to adept the cool design style for the Seymour Bits clip.

Shop Around asked me to make an intern explanimation for Capgemini .
Capgemini is one of the world's foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services.
My task was to visualize Capgemini as a company who build bridges between the IT the business branche.
I adapt the serious story and came up with the building site approach.
Due this metaphor the animation got a slight humorous tone without missing the message.

WALLS & PIECES
A selection of graffiti I made in the past years.
Graffiti, Street Art
HU-KANTEE-HANG is the title of the track I animated for Dutch hip-hop formation Boomoperators. This video was my graduation project at the School of Visual Arts Utrecht. The lyrics spit by MC Rescue are used as a guide to visualize the video. The audio of Kid Sundance is energetic and rough, I express this visually by using a hasty paste, limited colours, strong contrasts and dirty backgrounds.
All put together I tried to make a sleek rollercoaster ride which would feel like one camera movement switched between live-action shots, and animation on paper. I filmed the artists and two poodles in front of a blue screen and drew 1500 animation frames manually on A3 paper with ink and brushes.

Steenpuist is a video we made for Dutch rapper Steen (Steen is the Dutch word for Brick). In The Netherlands Steen is well known for his explicit songs and behaviour on stage.
The song Steenpuist (which is the Dutch word for Boil) and the lyrics, like most of his lyrics, contain references to horrible diseases and sexual disorders. We had all artistic freedom in this project, so we let our imagination go wild to make the filthiest, greasiest and nastiest video we ever did. We could make it very disturbing, but with references to popular culture, over the top humour and animation, we tried to keep it interesting to a larger public.
When the video was released, it became sort of a viral on Internet, and unfortunately in the end it got banned.

BNN - BADGASTEN
Animation for a Dutch improvisation comedy television show broadcasted by BNN. One part of the show was entirely shot in front of a green screen that got animated afterwards by me and two other animation studios.
The concept for this project was to make lively wild cartoon animations that follow the actions of the actors. The actors played a roll entirely based on suggestions and quotes from the live studio audience and presenter. I got all artistic freedom to create the worlds and attributes the actors suggested, due the short production time of three weeks per episode.

In springtime of each year I drive with my 175cc Honda motorcycle to Luxembourg. Together with a big group of Honda 4-stroke moped enthusiasts we rent a cabin and enjoy large quantities of red meat and cold beer.
As a souvenir I design each year a shirt.

I want to build one like this one day.

This video was made for Elsevier.
The design concept of the Transform video was based on KAPLA, small wooden construction planks that are used by kids as a toy. By adding the simple white lines we visualized a helper who helped the builder to gain his goal. By using these both simple expressions, the 2D lines and 3D animated KAPLA planks, came together well. The final video was clean and easy to understand.

Together with Eric van de Boom en Marjolein Rutgers we made and develop six designs for Woonbedrijf Eindhoven.
The works are made of several layers of MDF wood. They were painted and constructed by 25 workers of Woonbedrijf within 4 hours on a teambuilding day.
This project was very challenging, due the short time notice. We developed a clever method to construct it with simple forms and stapler machines.
The designs can be seen in a social housing complex in Geldrop The Netherlands.

Together with Eric van den Boom I painted 56 single canvases forming one giant caterpillar. Each canvas was interesting to look at and for sale.

Thanks Jeroen for making this happen!
