After my graduation film Leave a print won the Best film for children category at Animafest Zagreb in June it has had a good festival run and has so far been accepted into over ten festivals all over the world. After coming home from Zagreb I was recommended to start putting together a website for … Continue reading New website for Leave a print!
I'm back from Zagreb where my graduation film Leave a print was nominated in the children's competition. I had no expectations of winning before leaving and got even less when I saw my contestants cause the quality of the children's films were incredible high in this festival. But out of nowhere I did win! I … Continue reading Leave a print is now an award winning film!

The paper is recycled, very thin and not white, but rather a greying colour that comes with recycled paper. It's of the same … Continue reading Colour sketches
Since I haven't had any luck getting studio work in a while I mainly spend my days doing smaller freelance projects, applying for work and small personal projects. I want to try and come up with a new film I can work on as a bigger personal project, but for now I can't really focus … Continue reading Personal projects

Had a good day at life drawing yesterday. It was mostly short poses from 4 min down to just 30 seconds. Although I put the 30 sec ones first we did start on 4 min and went with shorter and shorter poses from there.
