Cubed The Diver & The Duck Hunter


Worked on two versions of the non-commercial project Cubed called ‘Cubed The Diver’ and ‘Cubed The Duckhunter’. The first one during my internship as a personal assignment and the second one as a production assistent and stop motion animator.

For Cubed The Diver I developed the story and timing on the Cube together with Rogier. Interaction designer Gijs Leijdekkers animated the diver in Maya/3D, illustrator and animator Iris van den Akker rotoscoped the turtle in Illustrator, and I animated the shark, fishes and jellyfish in After Effects. I also made the whirlpool animation in 3D and exported all the frames to Illustrator. Then Illustrator and studio producer Danièle Knirim and I glued all the boxes together which I animated on set, together with the little fishy at the end.

For Cubed The Duckhunter animator Kayliegh Schaafsma rigged and animated a walking duck in Maya, so I could make him fly and land in Maya and After Effects. I exported all the frames, used the lasercutter and glued the frames together with Danièle Knirim. Then I stop motion animated little flying birds and the Cubed-frames on set.

You can see Cubed The Diver edited in two parts in my showreel. But both Cubed shorts aren’t officially online yet.

In the link on the right (launch project) you can see the first ‘Cubed The Boomerang’.
