A few years ago I started my company and named the Dutch equivalent Strak In Beeld. For convenience sake I have now united the Dutch site with the English market/indie-site Mutant Worm Flicks.
So I’m back to the name I’ve been using since 1998: Mutant Worm. The accompanying website is finally officially online today – in other words: I took the ‘under construction’ notice off after the latest changes.
Mutant Worm focusses on explanimations, charakter animation, visual effects and motion graphics.
Sit down and relax. For the fiction fans among you there’s still room in The Vault (bottom menubar), and for the die hard fan there’s even a facebook fanpage and a link to subscribe to the newsletter.
Check out the latest posts that were missing on StrakInBeeld and MutantWormFlicks. It’s been busy.
The leader for Imagine 2011: the 27th Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival.
Based on Iris van der Eijken’s artwork. After the well-recieved leader of last year, I was asked to create one for this year. Again based on the festival poster it is somewhat similar in approach as last year’s, but different. My aim, again, was to make the flat image 3D using after effects, really making use of all the layers of the psd-file.
For after effects users interested in the motion graphic process: part of that meant using creating a displacement map for the person, and placing every element from the psd-file in 3D space, dispersing them in z-space, and changing the sizes accordingly to keep the same placement and perspective as the original poster.
The leader was generally well received by the festival crew. They put it online, plugging it through social media, and soon it was on their site as well. It showed before many of the festival films during its 10 day run.
The leader made good use of my new 12-core Mac; it would have taken me weeks of rendering otherwise. Of course I went all out in testing some new render-heavy tricks I wanted to pull.
I spent a Sunday at Imagine Filmfestival in Amsterdam, mainly to see a lot of shorts and to attend the POWER TO THE PEOPLE symposium about crowd funding/sourcing. Interesting speakers, like Eddy Terstall and Iron Sky directorTimo Vuorensola, were present.
The crappy video was shot with my mobile of my Imagine 2011 leader (based on Iris van der Eijken’s artwork) on a huge outdoor screen at Rembrandtplein during the festival. It ran a lot, about twice a minute at some point.
The other clip is in Kriterion in the evening showing visitors and the leader on a wall in the patio out back. I forgot to film it on the screen where it is/was showing before nearly every festival film.
The Imagine Amstardam Fantastic Film Festival was from 13-23 April 2011 in Kriterion. I found a few of the short online:
After Effects animation / enhanced slideshow created in a short time for Drachten|Smallingerland for a civil servant gathering. Commissioned by Statement communication bureau. Meant as an overview of developments in the municipality, and more to tantalize than a tell a story.
Thanks go out to videocopilot for some tricks and the sure target plugin.

The leader I made for the videocollective, part of the USVA Cultural Student Centre in Groningen.
I’ve been a member for many years. These days, they call themselves Buiten Kader (i.e. Off Screen) and they can be found here: www.buitenkader.nl. They mostly make student films, ranging from fiction to registrations.
This motion graphic was created in After Effects, using the camera, some text, layer modes, and the vegas effect.
