Holy shit, that’s right, I had a blog…
The last few weeks have been super busy for me, as I’ve spearheaded a little side project over at Monkeybizniz. For the Copenhagen Climate Conference this December, Friends of the Earth International asked us to create an animation for the Angry Mermaid Award, an initiative intended to expose lobbying practices in major corporations. It features a mermaid (the symbol of Copenhagen) fighting against environmental injustice.
The animation was completed in two weeks. It’s a little rough on the edges, but we were on a tight schedule. I was responsible for the storyboard, all character animation and final compositing. Most background elements were made by Dimme van der Hout, mermaid coloring was done by Erica Gasataya, and the music by Bart Delissen.
So far it has almost 20.000 views on Newgrounds, with an average rating of 3.96/5.00 after 1400+ votes and 70+ reviews, and won Daily second place on 11/21/2009.
