Commercial Project for Roskilde Festival 2013

In a 5-week-project we worked on a 20-second short commercial for Roskilde Festival. The theme was "Hack for Viability" which meant to bring the spirit of Roskilde (people working together, helping each other) outside of the actual Roskilde festival. How do you portray a spirit spreading over the world? In our group, we thought catching the attention of drunk people with dinosaurs was a good start, and showed the spirit of working together with a stylized little story.
Ramp up the Roskilde Spirit!

Gustaf Georg Lindström - Director, CG Artist
Frederik Troels-Smith - Art Director, Animator
Morten Froelich Jaeger -Technical Director, Generalist
Laura Andersen - Production Manager, Rigger
Hoegni Mohr - Matte Paintings, CG Artist
Dorte Flensted Jensen - Animator, Storyboard
Marion Strunck - Lead Animator

And just for fun I made a really quick weird crazy animation of dinosaurs doing harlem shake.
Thanks to Morten Froelich Jaeger for putting on shaders and environments etc :-)

Interaction Animation

With Hugo Hernandez (currently at Sony Animation) we animated an interaction between two people, it could either be a handshake, hug or kiss. I am still not done with polishing and will further work on it.

We did video reference for all of these, and Anne and me made one for a classmate who wanted to make an animation with a kiss. I thought it was pretty funny so I had to share. I hope you will laugh as much as we did :-)

Quadruped Project

The Quadruped Project is a collaboration between a Computer Graphic Artist and a Character Animator: Together we design the quadruped, then the CG rigs it, the CA animates it and the CG does the lighting, compositing, etc. The CGs would get a predefined rig, we could choose between a feline and a lizard rig and we chose latter.
My lovely CG-partner was Ann-Helen ( :-) She was really great to work with and very talented! Our supervisor was the wonderful Sydney Padua again :-)
Sound was made by Jonas Hinz!

This is the outcome, first version colored and shaded by Ann-Helen and the second and third version just with the Animation (The bright blue one is work-in-pogress but I thought it was so pretty so I had to put it up). The rig had an FK Spine and an FK Tail.

Acting Pantomime

With Michael Berenstein we could choose a scene of a character drinking or eating something that doesn't taste good. I made this assignment quite exaggerrated/cartoony :-)

Also, video reference is always fun and ridiculously hilarious, so here you go:
