Hired at Captcha!

I’m exited to announce I will be teaming up with Marcel Oudendijk en Barry Clarke at a new start-up called: Captcha!. Marcel and Barry have been involved in the industry for a long time and I’m very proud to say I am part of this team as from today. It is Gonna be a blast!

Commercial: Wieckse Shining glasses

This commercial was directed by Bram van Alphen en produced by Caviar Amsterdam. Brjorn Klaassen created all the 3D effects like the solar panels on the roof and all the fluid sims and particles and I made the sunbeams and compt everything together! Barry Clarke did the final grading. It was incredible projected to be part of and a lot of fun working with you guys! To view the end result and some highres images see my portfolio.

Today I’m doing long needed maintenance on the website. I hope to have it up-and-running again late this evening. My portfolio might take a couple of days to complete, so please comeback soon!

Condor files bankruptcy [Update]

logoToday is a sad day for post-production in Amsterdam. After 30 years of service Condor has become an unforgettable part of Dutch post-production history. However, unable to adapt to the new market situation, having too high overhead-costs and the growing pressure for working with ever lowering budgets, it was an inevitable faith. Being part of this fantastic team for just one year, this bankruptcy comes for me as a shock, making long hours and working on incredible projects. An immense challenge lies ahead now for the managing staff to look for a solution for continuation of the business in a new form.

I wish all of my colleagues the best of luck!

 

Update 15-04-2013:

Condor makes a new start! The German DAS WERK Group takes over CONDOR Amsterdam. Condor will continue with a small team. for more information, read the press release (Google translated). Original Pressreleases in German and Dutch.

Commercial: C1000 Kerst maak je samen

This funny C1000 commercial, directed by Hans Jonkers, is packed with visual effects, a nice project to close off this year at Condor. Because Hans filmed in November there was no snow. So we created this in most of the shots. Bjorn Klaassen was responsible for the the snow simulations and I compt everything together. For the end result and some highres images check my portfolio.
