I produced this animation as a way of proposing to my girlfriend (now wife) Natasha. I assembled a team of 20 animators to assist me, including co-workers, as well as students from my 3D character animation class at the Art Institute of California-San Francisco. We created more than four minutes of animation in just three months. When it was completed, I surprised Natasha by bringing her to the Parkway Movie Theater in Oakland, where they played the animation on the big screen in front of over 100 of our friends and family. The entire event was filmed for the TLC television show "A Perfect Proposal."
This animation is a sequel to worldofjeff's "Love Letters." This time Natasha is the star as she tries to come up with the perfect wedding invitation.
It was produced as a group project at the Art Institute of California - San Francisco by the Pre-Production/Production Team classes in the Fall of 2005 and Winter of 2006. The animation was burned onto DVD's and sent out as an actual wedding invitation.
This short animation was a school project in the 3rd and 4th semester of my studies at the University of applied Science in Salzburg, Austria. We were 3 guys working on the visuals(me, Sebastian Falkner, Paul Baaske) and one doing the sound (Michael Schönrock). I hope you enjoy our short story. The music in this version is by Édith Piaf.
Mariza is a short 3d animated film I created back in 2008 for the MA of Animation course I took at University of Technology Sydney. After a year of making it's run in the festival circuits I have decided to post it on-line for anyone to see.

An animated short film made by three 3D students in Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences. This was a summer project, but in the name of truth it took much longer than a summer to make it..
