But Milk Is Important - Trailer!

So now we finally finished the trailer for the animated short 'But Milk Is Important' that I made together with Eirik Grønmo Bjørnsen. The Film has been touring the festivals for a while now and we even won some awards!

I made some Illustrations and a Poster for a new children's play "Törn-Rosa". The play is based on Sleeping Beauty, but instead of letting the theme of love being central, they are exploring themes such as loneliness, alienation, friendship and doing something that you later regret.

Here is a text and one of the illustrations!

Film finished and back in Stockholm!

Long time since the last update. But I am still alive! And here is a short summary of what i have been up to:

Film finished + Award!
I finished my graduation film But Milk Is Important that i made togheter with Eirik Grønmo Bjørnsen!
We won an award for best Nordic-Baltic Student Film at Fredrikstad Animation Festival, and now we are sending it around to festivals!

Back in Stockholm and freelancing I have worked on some animated commercials and i made a vignette for Fredrikstad Animation Fesitval. At the moment I am helping out at a lovely stop motion short called Pappersvärld (Paperworld) by Jöns Mellgren. The film has a really nice style and it is very fun working with paper.
I have made the puppets, and also some props.
Two days ago we took the first shot and now I am animating on the film, very fun!

Turning the room into a studio..

First shot to be animated!

Tiny birds with paper wings, that I made for the film.

And least but not last, a little doodle.

Creature for bachelor film!

This is one of the creatures for my bachelor film. I made it with the technique called felt making and the skeleton was made by Eirik who i am co-working with. See more creatures we made on our production blog HERE.

Some concept sketches for the creature. The eyes will sometimes be small and black and sometimes bigger and staring, depending on the situation.
