Last week we made the second trailer for Breda Barst Festival. First we danced like there was no tomorrow, and after that we added the Breda Barst arms and colour to make it super freaky. Jana animated a Samsung business case for Yourzine and we now have a new nosey studio mascotte called Kaatje. She obviously likes to lie down a lot, and so does Jelle 😉
We love to teach other people the joy of stop motion animation. We provided this workshop for the visitors of Cultuurnacht (Culture Night) Breda.
Enormous slidings, moving goals and a ball with an attitude. This humoristic short stop motion animation from 2009 is a selection of what we can do with a ball and 3 footballplayers.
An animation test for the Breda Barst Festival promo we are working on at the moment. We used an illustration from the festival identity made by our friends from Staynice.
The 3rd episode in our sports series featuring weight lifting. We really tried to make it “pop”.
A follow up to our last week’s sport short “Grand Slam”. “Sprint” is about running, and let’s hope this guy is luckier than the tennis player.
A short 3D animation inspired by Wimbledon and tennisstars from the 70’s.
The dollars kept walking away in New York back in 2007. We should have known the crisis was coming.
We made an animated teaser for the upcoming documentary Too Posh To Push/Ikınamam Tatlım from Funda Tasdan. The teaser has a strong statement that suits the documentary very well.
A short animation experiment with clay replacements. The clay was modelled in 8 different forms. We replaced those forms after every photo we took to create this nice movement.
Today it’s 50 years ago, President John F. Kennedy addressed the congress for equal civil rights. That’s why we made a motion graphic with a piece of his statement.
We think Claude the Cloud is the reason the spring in the Netherlands is no where to be found. It just keeps on raining over here. This is a film of him doing his evil thing.
Our intern Boudewijn says thank you for his internship at Animate the World
A fish made of dirt loves to eat coffepads!
I gave my 4 year old son a quick lesson in stop motion animation. He got a hang of it quite fast. I’m so proud!

Congratulations to the new king of the Netherlands, King Willem-Alexander.
A few students from art academy St. Joost (Breda, the Netherlands) visited our studio to ask questions about entrepreneurship in animation. Ofcourse we made an animation with them!

If you start working for Animate the World, the first thing we do is make an animation of/with you. Here’s the film for Boudewijn, our new intern. You can see he’s quite an acrobat
For 1 year I followed the building of the AVhuis, a creative hotspot for filmmakers in Breda, the Netherlands. Everytime I took pictures from the same angle to create this timelapse. We took over 25,000 pictures.
This time it’s a classic! A selection from about 100 mini stop motion animations I made for VARA TV’s popular Dutch show De Wereld Draait Door.
As a stop motion animator you constantly see things in your surroundings which can be animated. I really love the movement of a caterpillar and testing materials through that movement. Lesson learnt: Make longer sequences of each different caterpillar for a longer film
Apples are cool objects to animate! This one is a bit unfortunate
Claimer: 2 apples were harmed making this film. Sue me.
We made some animation tests in HTML5 this time! We jumped into a new programme called Adobe Edge Animate. An animation tool which allows us to make sweet animations for the web in HTML5. This means you can view our animations on your tablet or smartphone.
With years of Flash and After Effects experience, it was sometimes hard to learn this slightly different way of animating, but we got 2 cool results. We completely redid 2 animations we made earlier in After effects and Flash.
Here is the first one:
Yay, it’s Animation Tuesday! I recently dug up my lovely Nintendo Game&Watch’s and had to buy new cell batteries. That’s why I came up with this little story. In our office we have a large chalkboard wall which is fun for storyboards or brainstorming, but also animation, so I threw that into the film for the background!
I recorded the sounds from the Donkey Kong game and used them for the music to get an authentic feel.
In the Netherlands it’s time for Sinterklaas festivities. This animation is about my love for Kruidnoten, which are basicly really small cookies, that are part of these festivities.
Here’s a sneak peek at our new Showreel!
Animation test for tracking filmed footage.
One of our first client films. It’s a trailer for the Dutch Gaming Days in 2006. Very fun project because we are game nerds 😉
2 idents we made for our showreels. We created them with stop motion animation and motion graphics and designed a 3D character.
Animation Tuesday! This film features a caterpillar from maskingtape which became one of our signature movements!
Skateboarding without wheels? We can do it!
A compilation of stop motion animation and motion graphics work from my animationstudio Animate the World in the second half of 2012.
Music by Thomas Rademakers aka Camp Yo!
Hi, nice you’re watching Animation Tuesday again! This time one of the biggest commercial productions we did at Animate the World. We love to do commercial work because we almost always get total creative freedom to make great things. This production was for Canon and features a bunch of footballing digital cameras. Say What? Yes, footballing cams. Enjoy

A happy animated 2013 to you all!
Here’s a stop motion animation experiment I did back in 2005 for my film My Animated World. In the Netherlands we put these sprinkles on our bread and we call it hagelslag.
TV station Omroep Brabant asked us a bizarre but really fun question. “Can you guys animate partying sheep doing the polonaise?” Yes we can! This is how we did it. A polonaise is a dance dutch people do when celebrating carnaval or a winning match from our national team
