KLIK! Animation Festival Amsterdam is our favorite festival. This year we we’re asked to do a special parade for the opening of the festival. As if a lot of characters escaped from the animations. We made giant walking and flying characters with students from the HKU academy for the arts and the volunteers from KLIK! We stimulated the students to create the characters so that they had some movement in them: we explained some automata principles and they really got … Continue reading

Dining with the Tsars @Hermitage

Screenshot 2016-02-18 18.31.30

During the Tijdens MN8we had an animation / cardboard costume workshop in the Hermitage. First you made your own Kokoshnik and beard. Then you sat on the animated table to make a small animated movie with the specially prepared objects we made. Live-size animated sequences and pinned dolls. Walking pigs, melting teacups, fish swiming on the plates… It was a very big success and we are already thinking of new projects with this technique…

Cardboarders go to Cardboardia

test

The Tyran and Mayor of Cardboardia came to Amsterdam! I (Mathijs) was very eager to meet them and talk about Cardboardia and the possibilities for cardboarders to go there. There are so many similarities with what we are trying to do. Cardboardia also uses the seemingly worthless cardboard as a material for their projects. In the process they stimulate playfulness, games and other experimental and creative behavior. Some of their projects are really big! Cardboardia is a country without land that … Continue reading
