sprookjes boom

I worked (from 2009 to 2011) at Motek Entertained in Amsterdam. Where I worked as an animator, motion capture operator and as an junior project manager on four different seasons and a featured film of the “Sprookjesboom”.

“De Sprookjesboom” is a TV series for little kids. All animations were done with  motion capture. The motion capture recordings where synced with the prerecorded voice recordings and linked to Motion Builder for a live preview with lip sync. Puppeteers  added the facial expressions at the same moment. In post the cloth simulations, finger & prop animations and special effects where added and all composed in Nuke.

tasks:

  • Motion capture recording with Vicon Blade & Motion Builder
  • Hand & prop animation with Motion Builder & Maya
  • Special Effects creation in Maya
  • Creating props/sets in Maya & ZBrush
  • Texture creation in Photoshop
  • Composition in Nuke
  • Manage a small team
