DigitalMedia First Course Exam project 2015/2016

Exams were coming up. We were asked to create a project from christmas break until the start of school. So our time limit was from the 18th of December to the 4th of January.

I decided to create a short film called So You Want To Become An Animator. Along with the project we had to create a report of the entire thing. The report I wrote has beginning of the idea, general workflow and what I had in store and an overall consensus of how I thought it went. Instead of me explaining it all in a lengthy blog post, I’d recommend just reading

Internship at DanmarkC TV

At the end of September I was offered a 3 month long internship at DanmarkC TV. During this time, I edited some of their features which was an absolutely amazing experience to be able to say that I’ve made stuff that has been shown on television. These features are all edited by me. I place the clips in an order that tells the story in the best way possible and then I give the edited thing to Tommy so he can put graphics on it like the little credits at the end, the logo and the lower third.

After my entire period was done with them, by early December, they gave me a review of how they thought it all worked out. It’s a pretty nice read. (Keep in mind, it’s entirely in danish)

Below are a couple of time stamp links that go directly to the features I’ve worked on.

This post will be updated as I work on more videos for them.

The following videos do however require you to understand danish.

Motion Graphics assignment

This is an assignment we had, where we were supposed to make a little motion graphics animation showing the school cantina’s opening hours.

This is what I managed to come up with.

VFX assignment: Genre Supernatural

We were asked to make a short film in the style of something supernatural happening with video game characters.

This is the final result.

Animation assignment

We were supposed to make a tiny animation of some text on the screen. I was already working on my ball animation so I combined it with said assignment.

Here’s the end result

A bunch of 3D stuff

Playing around with Maya the past two weeks. Managed to get out a neat animation using the ball from Luxo Jr.

Since I’m doing a post about 3D, I should show off some previous frames of stuff I’ve worked on.

A video game character called a Mr. Saturn.



Different sets I used for a lighthouse render.

Video work for Likan ApS

I have a sort of part time internship at a place called Likan. An architecture business. They wanted me to make a video promoting that they have some work space open. They’re in the middle of setting up an office and starting up their business. So far they have a website and they also have many customers. I did have some help with this video. Christoffer and Levon, fellow classmates who also works at Likan. Christoffer made the little UFO bit and Levon did the little end animation. I put everything together along with the music and text. Overall, this project ended fantastically and I’m really satisfied with how it came out.

Odense Zoo Commercials

We were asked to make a commercial for kids attractions in Denmark.

Problem was that… It was in the winter and everything was closed because of that. Except Odense Zoo. So we went there and began filming. We were told to do this in danish. That’s why it’s in danish

3D animation

We were asked to make a bunch of animations with pre made rigs. This is the end result of some of it.

This last one was an assignment given to us asking us to make a comedy sketch, running maximum 30 seconds in 4 days. I went a little bit overboard and made my animation last a little longer. We could either make one up or recreate something. I chose to recreate a sketch from Don Hertzfeldt’s rejected. I created a spoon and the bowl. I was helped with getting the cereal to fill the bowl and getting a banana model which I textured myself. This is what I managed to come up with.

For a first time animating in 3D and handling lip syncing. It’s pretty alright. I think I could’ve done better though.
