figure drawing - gamla stan

Started doing figure drawing again after about a one year hiatus. And now as I’ve been working full time as an animator for a little more than a year. I take with me so much more from the sessions than I did before. At the moment I am trying to grasp how muscles flex and bend and the softness of us, how limbs are pressing against each other or objets, and how and if I as an animator can incorporate that into my animations, and not go via simulations or just not do anything about it.

reebok sublite duo - bobby digital

Figured it’s about time for some updates on what I’ve been doing lately. So right before summer hit I returned to Göteborg for about two months of work at Bobby Digital. I animated on five spots for reebok, and Gore-tex latest. It’s always great fun to be back in Göteborg, and Bobby really brought their best for these spots. Animation in these has mostly been in working with the camera, making edits work, composition, timing etc. To in essence make a shoe look interesting, exciting and fun. Bobby in general has a really outdoorsy, action sporty feel to the studio, there’s a lot of videos of that kind floating around the studio, and they reference it greatly. So for these projects I therefore looked at a lot of snowboard, skate and bike videos to use that kind of aesthetic on these films. The most epic of those would be The Art of Flight, with its multimillion dollar budget, and armada of helicopters, and dollys through long stretches of forrest to create some spectacular shots, which sensibilities I tried to bring into these spots.

gbg - rome

Last week I, a bit spontaneously went to Rome for a masterclass in animation and character design by some of the great artists working at Pixar studios. This was a two full day event, with one day dedicated for each subject. Andrew Gordon, animation director, and supervising animator and the man behind the SplineCast. A podcast I can go back to, listen to and always get something new out of. I started listening to this something like 7 years ago, when I just started figuring out that this might be a possible job i wanna do. This podcast opened my eyes immensly to what annimation really is in those early days. Andrew’s talk was absolutely brilliant, I was filled with inspiration. It was really great to also get some new perspective on certain topics or just get certain topics explained in a different, new way. But what I reckon I got most out off was seeing him, break down and talk about his, and others shot. What they look for, polish, acting choices. Ricky Niervas, a production designer who talked on the second day. I haven’t really had any proper lectures or reflected in these matters on a deeper level. It was a great, fun filled day, with us doing a lot of sketching, caricatures etc. This is something I feel I wanna keep doing atleast once a year. Getting away, listening to some of the best in the business. Feeling inspired, and have a new look on somethings, to keep it things fresh. Both of them work under the words “you’re always a student”. 

On top of listening to some fantastic lectures, I got to sightsee Rome for two days, which hardly isn’t enough cause there’s so much to see. Your just walking around going “Oh, yeah!! wow I completely forgot about that. what!! Is that thing also here. Cool!!” The high point are definietly forum romana, where you should buy your tickets to coloseum and all the magnificent churches and basilicas, the pantheon, and st peters basilica  just has such an amazing atmosphere and scale.
