La Valse Botanique

Click the Vimeo logo for high quality (and full screen option).
This is a papercut stop motion animation I have made for Floriade 2012 (World Horticultural Expo, Venlo - The Netherlands) It is the main reason it's been so quiet here lately, because I have been working on it for 7 full weeks. It will be shown at Floriade until october 7th this year. La Valse Botanique ('The Botanic Waltz') is a short silhouette animation of how plants and flowers try to impress a bumblebee and its passenger. All characters and flowers are papercut and animated in stop motion. Story & design: Graça Brohm. Music written by: Gerard Brohm. Music by: Trio Misto (accordion: Hans Sparla, guitar: Paul Hagenaars, contrabass: Gerard Brohm). Production: Coert Buiting. Post production: Apvis. Thanks to: Trio Misto, Carsten van Berkel, Thijs van Vuure, Eva Wolfs, Rein Schoondorp, Friso Blankevoort, Hester Zuidema

what I have been up to

It has been long since I have posted anything here, sorry about that. What I have been up to: I've been very busy making a short papercut stop motion animation in the past 7 weeks. And weekends and nights. It has been a lot of work but also a lot of fun! It was the first time that I did this, fortunately I got a lot of help from friends and family. The music is composed, played (with colleages of his) and recorded by my father - who is a musician - and I think he did a great job! The animation will be online soon. Ofcourse I will post it here too. (photos: testshots from the animation)
