From The Snow-Covered Hill – Sound Design

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been travelling to Wiebe de Boer’s sound studio to record some talented kids and hear the mix for our animated short take shape. Finally having great audio which fits the visuals truly gives a fresh perspective on everything – almost like watching for the 1st time instead of the 500th. Hearing music composed to a story you’ve created is quite an experience too. Kinda intense. We’re really starting to feel the film the way it should!

Exciting announcement!?

’From The Snow-Covered Hill’ is getting a special preview at the Eindhovens Film Festival in Natlab door Plaza Futura.

On December 8, we’re showing an almost finished cut of our entire animated short to an audience… for the very first time! We will also reminisce about the way the short came to be, how the story evolved during the creation process and show behind the scenes material.

Join us, because we can’t wait to hear what you think!

Painting Backgrounds for Animation 04: Noir Table

To create a Film Noir-ish look in our @dwddtv animation, we painted backgrounds using just black and white. In this style it’s especially fun to play with highlights of glassware.

De Wereld Draait Door

Dutch TV Show ‘De Wereld Draait Door’ asked us to create an animated teaser for ‘Manhattan Beach’ by Jennifer Egan, a book with a fantastic mood to try to capture.
