The first of three explanimations for Cito, an internationally recognized expert in developing and administering examinations and tests.
Commissioned by ad agency NNJD.
Why test students?
Every child has the right to education that suits him. To avoid arbitrariness, it is important to measure his knowledge objectively, without looking at origins and background. This principle is the origin of Cito and therefore also of our LVS tests.
The LVS tests help you systematically chart the progress of your students throughout elementary school.
This gives insight into the development and capabilities of your students. What is their knowledge and ability compared to their classmates, and how do their skills develop during primary school?
You daily gather a lot of information about your students. For example by observations, with the works they make, and with the tests in the methods. Of course you also look at their learning and working attitude, and their socio-emotional development.
The LVS-tests complete the image that you get of your students in everyday practice. This allows you to tailor education to their needs, and to ensure they can get the best out of themselves.

An explanimation for students of Financial Management at the Hanze University of Applied Science.
(English subtitles available on youtube)
The vision of lecturer Margreet Boersma on sustainable financial management:
The Why of Sustainable Financial Management
Suppose you want to study Financial Management at the Hanze University of Applied Science.
You already see yourself operating in the world of fast cash: juggling with numbers, clever arithmetic and in control of spending. You as a financial manager and hub of the organization.
And if you do it right, you get a fat bonus. Money, that’s what our economy revolves around. Or is there more than just money and material gain?
The banking crisis and the economic crisis made it obvious that our system and thinking of money are incorrect. Money is not an end but a means. A means to build a sustainable economy.
Sustainable? A bit of a container term but the basis of the new thinking about financial management .
The Institute of Financial Management at Hanze University trains you to become a sustainable financial. We’ll let you practice in sustainable efficiency savings.
You’ll learn to think about the social consequences of tax tricks. You will realise that trust plays an important role in auditing or the IRS.
We develop this knowledge about sustainable financial management through research. In line with a rich history on this subject.
Did you know that in the fourth century BC, Plato already pondered whether we have a social responsibility as a human being or that we are only responsible for ourselves?
The research and knowledge development takes place within the lectorship sustainable financial management. Together with the business community.
This way we take collective responsibility for a valuable world.

Mutant Worm worked on the 3D texts and getting rid of an unwanted ad. This was my first use of video copilot’s Element plugin. This plugin opens a lot of doors for 3D object integration in After Effects and I barely scratched the surface of it’s possibilities. I also used After Effects CS6′s 3D camera tracker and it’s 3D extrusion capabilities.
Meanwhile the TV commercial version has also come online.
The third explanimation for Overheidsfilm.nl. My task in this project was again to animate this clear and stylish animation showing the steps you need to take when you have to get an ID-card in Holland. It’s in Dutch so you’ll just have make do with watching it it for style and animation. There is even more repetition, some of which are very slight. Find the differences!

About the process
There is always new stuff to try but the process for this one was pretty much the same as the last. Just for the record: there is so much I could have done with the wonderful illustrations by Arthur, but there is a limit to the time you can spend on a project if you want to stay within budget. Maybe I’ll do an After Effects Rigit Script test with one of the puppets from these animations. I’ll probably post it.
