New animation showreel for 2011!

Last week I finished putting together my new animation showreel. It features new material from this year, but also retouched material from earlier years brought back to new life.

For those who were watching the Eindbaas documentary artwork progress, some of the final animations already premiere in my showreel, before the release of the documentary.



Also:
News on the Eindbaas front. All the animations are finalized and delivered, the waiting is for the directors to finish and release the film. I'm really looking forward to the final cut!

MoMA exhibits my animation project GENTRIFICATION BATTLEFIELD

















Wow! The exhibition 'Talk To Me' in the New York Museum of Modern Art will feature a project that I created the animation for, after a concept by Jeroen Beekmans and Joop de Boer @ Golfstromen, with music by the upcoming dutch chiptune talents of Men of Mega.

Link to animation on MoMA website here:

The animation is called 'Gentrification Battlefield' and it's a simulation of a real-time strategy video game, where you can choose sides between either the hipster gentrifiers or the inhabitants whose neighbourhood is being invaded.

I'm really proud to hear they are going to exhibit it!

SEPP & SCHRODT artwork

After a long period working of different projects which I'm not allowed to publish yet, I have made some new pixel artwork that I can show you.

Now, Elte Hartland and I are going into the final phase of animating all the different artwork together so it can be fit into the Eindbaas documentary. On july 29 we're planning to make the final cut of the documentary and seal the deal!

BLOG!
























Ter vervanging van mijn oude website ben ik deze blog begonnen om m'n animatiewerk te delen. Voor mensen die nog niet bekend zijn met m'n werk, mijn animatieportfolio is te bekijken op: www.vimeo.com/coenrens




Ik wil op deze blog in de eerste plaats vertellen over de projecten waar ik mee bezig ben geweest, zowel betaalde opdrachten als persoonlijk werk.










In samenwerking met Elte Hartland ben ik bezig om vormgeving en animaties te maken voor een documentaire over Eindbaas, dè organisator van chiptune feesten (8-bit elektronische bliep dansmuziek)! De documentaire wordt gefilmd door Rocco Wouters met Art Direction van Frans Twisk. Ik houd me voornamelijk bezig met het maken van portretten van de artiesten die optreden in de film, in een retro 16-bit pixelstijl, geinspireerd door de realistische close-up portretten uit Lucas Arts' Monkey Island series.

SNEAK PREVIEW!

Intussen is Elte Hartland bezig om de 'gear' van de artiesten in isometrische pixelstijl te tekenen: Gameboys, Commodore 64's, Amiga's, mengpanelen, etcetera.
























Binnenkort een nieuwe update!
