WhyFi? Because...

Every once in a while you feel the urge to abandon all reason and just go nuts. My friends Tiddo Muda and Conchita Mulder felt the same uncontrollable desire to make a crazy animation and we teamed up on this little snack here. WhyFi was born from the loins of commission deadline compromise and the childlike wish to animate extreme actions (Pokeball... away!).
In between projects we thought: What the glob? Why not? And just went ahead with a very short and simple idea. Conchita donated her spare time to seriously bomb that sh*t, adding awesome flames into the mixture. Tiddo poured in his insatiable love for design, compositing like a crazyman. And I completely freaked on extreme character animation. Yes, EXTREME character animation.

Post-Apocalypse Party

This is a small project I did with Conchita Mulder. Together we made a flyer for a new years eve party. The party's theme was Post-Apocalypse. I came up with the story and did the sketching. Conchita did the lay-out, the coloring and the fonts. The party was awesome!

Rough Sketches

Animated book trailers

I just finished this project where I animated five book trailers. It was a fun and challenging project since I only had two weeks per animation. We worked with a group of nine animators and all the work combined fills a complete hours of broadcasting time.
