Animation Showreel

It’s pretty overwhelming to comprehend that there is just a month left of my 2nd year of animation studies in Turku Arts Academy. Wow. At this point I feel like I’ve learn a lot and that I have so much more to learn. It was time to make my 1st animation showreel to list the animations I’ve worked on so far. My favourite animation programs at this point are TVPaint, AfterEffects and DragonFrame. I uploaded the showreel both to Youtube and Vimeo so go and take a look. All feedback is warmly welcomed. Thank you.

Congratulations La La Land

Who watched the Oscars last night? Pretty dramatic, huh!? As I already mentioned in last post I saw the movie La La Land last week and I loved it. I made a spontaneous movie themed speed drawing video with Aqua Markers on Sunday to celebrate the magical musical and the Oscars. Don’t you just love Emma Stone (and Ryan Gosling for that matter). Congratulations to her winning the best leading lady. And Congratulations to all winners and runner-ups of the night!

Finishing My Film

My 2D drawn animation Näkökulma – Point of View is almost done. I got the visuals – animation, clean up, coloring and titles – ready last week. Jey! But I still have little bit of sound editing to do. After that it’s completely done and I can call myself animation director for real. How cool is that. Here is couple of screenshots from my film.

Going Retro With Chroma Key

Last week in school we spent (well) with the teacher Leo Liesvirta in front of green screen and After Effects.  I was in a group with Sade Lahti, Anton Lipasti, Ossi Haapanen and Ville Kankaanpää. We five created these opening titles for a imaginary TV show called the Supreme Individual. We did them in just four days without any previous experience in chroma key. So proud to present you the outcome. Enjoy!

Business Pigeon

Hello. Hello. I uploaded new Dood Elli Doo video already on Monday but only today I added the English subtitles. I love how convenient the Youtube subtitle tool was so I’m gonna use that also in the future. You can click on the subtitles by finding the sub icon from the right down corner of the display screen.

This is actually the first Dood Elli Doo video where do what I’m gonna do: tell stories while making illustrations. This one is about a Business Pigeon in Manhattan New York. Hope you like it. If you do I’m ever so grateful for likes, shares and subscribes. I’m gonna upload a new video this week. I think Thursday will become my day of new content. Wohooo!

Dood Elli Doo

My art vlogging career started today. The idea of Dood Elli Doo has been spinning around my head quite a while now but this week I got it done: speed drawing meets vlogging my way. I chose to keep the spoken language in Finnish which is my mother tongue but there is subtitles in English. If you’d like to see more videos like this please subscribe to my channel and also feel free to like/follow Dood Elli Doo in Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Woop. Thank you! Now I’m off to a mini vacation in Stockholm. Fun times.
