A little background information...

This 4 minute cgi short has been created by Job, Joris & Marieke, a Dutch studio for animation, illustration, character design and music.

Joris cut himself in his toe once, while he was swimming. He thought the cut looked a bit like a mouth, so we thought: this calls for a film! We love to tell short, weird stories.

How was the film made?

We made the film with Cinema 4D, but there’s a very graphic touch to it. So we use a lot of illustrator drawings to project on our 3D characters and 3D world.

In this studio we do everyting. We studied as designers. But we didn’t want to design chairs, but tell stories. So animation is a great combination of those disciplines. We make up our own stories. Most of the time Marieke does screen writing and Joris directs the film. Also Job (of Job, Joris & Marieke) is besides a designer a musician and sound designer. So that’s about how everything’s done.

アニメというと、コマ撮りが普通のアニメと同じぐらい出てくるのが、さすが アードマン・アニメーションズの国ですな。
