Introducing Chapter 1 of Tooth & Claw, "Sir Milo". Trouble is stirring in the muskrat village of "Greenwater" and its up to 'Sir Milo' to help save a family in peril, but not all is at is seems to be. If you like cartoons involving anthropomorphic animals set in a medeival time period with darker and more serious overtones, then this one's for you. The start of hopefully more to come. Chapter 2 is already in progress.
A tribute to Nikola Tesla... today, July 9 2012 is his one hundred fifty-sixth birthday.
Translated, the Serbian text says: "Let the future tell the truth, and judge each of us according to our accomplishments... The present is theirs. The future, for which I have really worked, is mine."
A truly great inventor the architect of our technological masterpiece
He accomplished the impossible for the ungrateful
and created something from nothing.

Brand new piece commissioned by the music artist epsilon-blue. I really enjoyed doing this piece, it's been such a long time since I did an animation that was strictly about animated typography. Originally I had only planned to spend three weeks getting this done in a very straight-forward way, but new ideas kept popping up, and epsilon-blue and I kept refining things, so that it took three months in the end.
Completely designed and animated in After Effects.

Here it is, my final assignment (thesis work?) in Lybecker Institute of Crafts and Design.
This little thing was my life from last December all the way to to the last days of May. I was supposed to upload this month ago, but unfortunately the original file was too big for DA, and I didn't have a film editing program of my own, so you can all thank my friend ~Drazca for letting me use her computer with Adobe After Effects. ^^
Animation, story, narration, voice acting and foaley artistness is by yours truly, the dog barks and growls in fourth scene are free sound effects and the music used was catalogue music, which licence belongs to Lybecker Institute of Craft and Design, and are free to use in projects within Lybecker.
In case you were wondering, the speech is in my mother tongue. That's what Finnish sounds like.
I am now officially diagnosed with animation. Oh, yeah!
