It’s not a secret we love robots here at BLR, so we wanted them to be the heroes in our latest promo clip. Luxury cars with powerful engines to drive through roads under severe speed restrictions, cable TV that allows us to pay to watch all kind of sports, all from our comfortable sofa, and of course, hyper expensive cell phones that do almost everything but making a decent phone call.
Yes, our happiness is based on things we don’t need and governed by entities we don’t control, so what? Sit down and turn on the tv!
The robots were taken from real Japanese robot model kits, and they now hold a privileged position in our freak museum. The bad guy spits real smoke out of its mouth! The environment is made of cardboard houses that were integrated with the help of camera tweaks. It all serves to the purpose of creating a dumb homogeneous atmosphere in which we’re defined by what we’ve got, that is, the same lame things.
Don’t take the message too seriously. This is a promo video we’ve done to laugh at ourselves. We all have an i-diot inside, and it’s so fun!

What if we farmed the way we fished?
againstallodds director Niklas Rissler created this stunning film for WWF to promote sustainable fishing. Using a combination of hand-animated 2D animals and hand-painted 2D landscapes all mapped in 3D, againstallodds film for WWF is genuinely hand crafted and unique.
This python script generates chains from selected curves, ready for animation and very fast (but realistic) dynamic simulation. You can anytime change dimensions of rings.
Version 2: you can now choose the solver between Nucleus (better) and Hair System (faster).
A short film about man’s misunderstanding and mixed relationship with mother nature (barf!)..
This is my graduate film from IADT National Film School.. Its a bit of a mix of stop-motion, live action and hand drawn animation, shot in my attic on a Cannon EOS 5D, Cannon 450D and a 7D too (basically any camera i could borrow from friends and siblings). i hope you like it!
