Starts with Rain – eine experimentelle Animation

Eine Animation, die ich erstellt habe, um die Animationsmöglichkeiten meines Zeichenprogramms Clip Studio Paint zu erproben, mit dem es jetzt relativ leicht möglich ist, entstehende Pinselstriche zu animieren…

Technik: Mixed digital Media mit Elementen aus Clip Studio Paint (Regen, Tusche Splatters, Wolf Ani), Photoshop und Flash.

Gonzales – Head Turn Test with Anime Studio 10

The character’s name is Gonzales. With the rat „Carla“ (see left sketch) he belongs to a landmine detection team I named „Team Bogota“ in which he is the bodyguard of Carla.
I started to develop a story with these characters – either for Comic or animation.
The idea is inspired by the following article:

Another Innovative Landmine Detection Method:
Cat and Rat Teams

In Columbia, there are over 100,000 hidden landmines.
Columbian police had been using rats to sniff out hidden landmines, as the rodents have an excellent sense of smell (their detection rate is 96%) and are light enough that they don’t set off the explosives. However, those working with the rats encountered a serious problem – the effectiveness of the trained rats was reduced by their fear of predation.
The landmine detecting rats were taught to freeze when they encountered a mine, but the rodents were too afraid of attack to stand still. To make them less fearful of common predators, police began pairing them with friendly cats. The cats wear claw shields, and the unlikely pairs play together and establish friendships, reducing the rats’ fear of predation.

„High format“ flash animation: The Universe is Change

I was asked by bildwechsel, an audiovisual women’s film and video archive, to make a video contribution for their „High Format Videofestival“ in Hamburg, called „Parole: Hochformat“ („Watchword: High Format“).

The motto was: „CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE OR TAKE ACTION“

The „High Format“ videofestival was staged in hamburg in autumn 2010 for the first time.
This is my contribution „The Universe is Change“:
