Die Wurst ist bei der Offiziellen Auswahl der Berlinale 2015 dabei, und läuft in der Section Kulinarisches Kino im Martin Gropius Bau in Berlin am 11. Februar.
Anschliessend gibt's auch was zu futtern! Wie geschmackvoll!
Ausserdem ist der Film auch in Brüssel zu sehen im ANIMA Film Festival.
(Update : WURST won the Audience Award at the festival ANIMA in Brussels!)
WURST is online! Please enjoy the torments of a little Weisswurst in her desperate search for sophistication. Big thanks to the Rockstar Isabelle Andrivet, my favorite pianist Cedric Kennel and the deft sewing hands of Guillaume Chartier.
Emission de Canal + qui parcourt le net à la recherche de pépites artistiques, Oeil de Links est consacrée cette semaine à la stop motion. La variété de techniques et d'esthétiques présentées est étonnante, la réalisation de l'émission est top, et les saucisses de WURST sont heureuses d'en faire partie!
Its is an honour for me to have my film featured in this year's Animation Show of Shows. Screenings are happening at many major Animation Studios and Schools in the US in the next few weeks.
I won't be able to make it to most of them, but San Francisco, Berkeley, Pixar, PDI and ILM should be covered!
I shot this film in my apartment in San Francisco last month. The idea came to my mind while wandering around the local IKEA store trying to find the exit! And the incredibly slick and stylish JANSJO Desklamp instantly attracted me, her slick design makes her arrogant and haughty like a proud goose! Thus a new character was born, and the melodrama could unfold!
Special thanks to Maya Cárdenas and Cédric Kennel, for a lot of laughs on our spanish brainstorm!
I stumbled upon this Film Scratch Animation that I did with 6 other students back in School. We'd scratch and paint directly on the photographic filmreel, synching it to the beautiful Piano music by Gonzales. My segment is the one using old footage from a Brigitte Bardot film.
Last Summer I worked on the next Pixar Short starring Ken and Barbie, released with Cars2 this year. In the following clip that Disney put online as a trailer, I animated everything but the last shot. Enjoy!
Here are some pics explaining my work process on FOR SOCK'S SAKE, which I just finished in Calarts, California. I shot the clothes separately in stop motion with a digital still camera on green screen, and comped them together in my drawn Backgrounds.
Clay figure, wooden doll and Aardman Studios puppet with iron armature and latex foam body, all animation and designs by myself. Facilities provided by the Bristol School of Animation. Shot with a video camera and edited with Stop Motion Pro software.
Trailer for the Annecy Animation Festival 2007, in collaboration with Antonin Herveet, Sophia Chevrier and Cecile Francoia. The animations are hand-drawn, then coloured in Photoshop and composited in After Effects.
Here is a sample of my animation work on this film:
