Team William Videoclip



It's here! the new videoclip of Team William! The two directors are my friends Michélé De Feudis and Joris Bergmans. I animated all of the walkcycles, God and that bouncing little duck you see in the background a lot. ;)
The other people who worked on it are: Lois Van Baarle,
Michèle Vanparys and Maxim Vandeputte. Great job everyone. Now let's make some more!

For teh win!



Second runner up (3rd prize)
One film stood out because it scored high on all aspects of animation filmmaking: story, direction, design, animation, strong characterization, timing, camera and editing.
Although the clue of the film can be foretold by the audience, it is the overall quality of the filmmaking that keeps the audience amused until the very last credit.
Third prize goes to the film that tells us the story of mankind’s eternal fight over money and how it can ruin friendship: Opgejut by Koen De Koninck (RITS Erasmushogeschool Brussels).


My goodness, they made me blush! :p
They forgot one thing: the great coloring by my dad :p
Thanks dad!

Tapir: king of the jungle

Did you know the tapir is the national animal of Belize? I wonder what's the national animal of Belgium. Maybe the Brabant horse.

Do you feel lucky?

I'm a westernfreak. And there's only one king of westerns!

Preston Blair's skipping squirrel

Here's a wacom animation I did, using the keys from Preston Blair's animation book. I think it's an amazing piece of animation and again (like Milt Kahl's work) a joy to inbetween.

Pinocchio walkcycle, tribute to Milt Kahl

My first wacom animation. I used the Milt Kahl thumbnails from the illusion of life as keys and then inbetweened and finetuned it. God I love his work...

A walk inspired by the great Milt Kahl


I animated this walk in an hour. Just to do something else then this bloody graduation film.

Tapir animation studios

I wanna start a new animation studio: tapir animation studios. Wanna work for me? leave a comment. Our goal: kicking animated butts! ;p My sister drew this funny version of what she thought a tapir looked like. I drew the final version, and my dad made the final one in toonboom! So it's a family work. :p

the Secret of Kells official trailer!


oh boy, what a feast! at last, the much awaited feature film: the secret of kells is about to be released (by no less than Disney: Later I can tell my children that I was an intern on a disney feature :) but not really, because they only release the film. ) It was a kickass internship: and although there wasn't much work left, I still got to learn a lot. And I met plenty of fantastic animators, especially Pascal Vermeersch: kick ass animator, mentor and a big 'big lebowski' fan.
I can't wait to see it. I hope you all unleash a viking attack to your nearest kinepolis! and after the movie: to stay in the mood: drink a couple of guinnes stout beers!




here's a color key for my graduation film.
