New short film!
Recently I've started working on a new short film with the working title Varken. For this project I received some funding for pre-production from the Netherlands Film Fund and I'm currently working on the storyboards. You can see some artwork below. I plan to post more updates and artwork for this project throughout the year.
My film Flower Found! continues to play at several festivals around the world, and it even picked up some awards!
Last year I also travelled to many festivals to present my film, including Annecy, Zagreb, Ottawa and Hiroshima. I also found myself in some odd places like Kosovo and Macau. I took a month long train ride across Europe, visited Japan twice and got attacked by a raccoon in Canada.
Besides the festival screenings Flower Found! is also being distributed by The Animation Show of Shows and can be seen in theatres across the United States. It might screen in your city as well! Check out all the dates here. It plays alongside 15 other wonderful animated short films, 3 of which are Oscar nominated I think. Go check it out if you can!
Because of the distribution deal I cannot release the film online yet, but hopefully I will be able to put it up on Newgrounds at some point.
It also got some nice reviews!
