Videos and Information Relevant to animation
UPDATE: I would like to thank you all very very much and I am very happy that you like my shortfilm ... :') The animated shortfilm “The Tale Of Mr. Rêvus” is my (Marius Herzog) graduation (Diploma) film, produced at the Georg-Simon-Ohm Hochschule – University Of Applied Sciences, Nuremberg. The challenge of this movie was to reproduce the entire production process of an animated 3D shortfilm by myself including story development, concept design, modelling, rigging, directing, editing, animating, rendering and finally compositing (see credits). The amazing score orchestrated by Simon Scharf student at the Hochschule für Musik Nuremberg (HfM) has been conducted by Guido Johannes Rumstadt, played by the orchestra of the HfM and recorded by Toni Hinterholzinger. Special thanks to all the kind people who supported me in a very tough time especially my beloved family, Prof. Jürgen Schopper and Tobias Wiesner. This movie wouldn´t exist without you... Besides the actual technical and creative production the story turned into a very personal metaphor. Thanks for watching!

THE 3-YEAR WAIT IS OVER! FINALLY ONLINE IN ITS HI-DEF, FULL-LENGTH GLORY: MAX HATTLER & JEMAPUR COLLABORATION AANAATT! Complete credits, awards and screening history: maxhattler.com/aanaatt Onedotzero interview with Max Hattler: vimeo.com/13454564 1-minute teaser: vimeo.com/1640427 "Hattler proposes an unusual stop-motion animation, where objects of abstract shape and unknown function move in a space that bears no relationship to any kind of real experience. The various elements move within this three dimensional space, like parts of a dynamic painting that condenses a whole series of references to contemporary art: from the constructivism of Moholy-Nagy, to the historic abstracts of Mondrian and Klee, and on to the more recent experience of conceptual and kinetic art. Changing shapes, plays of colour and transforming surfaces compose a dynamic universe that is both alienating and fascinating at the same time." Invideo 2010, Italy "An exciting experiment in the tradition of Oskar Fischinger (Komposition in Blau, 1935), Dwinell Grant (Composition No. 1, 1940) and Slavko Vorkapich (Abstract Experiment in Kodachrome, 1950s). Max Hattler presents a well-done interaction between music and moving images. Space is turned upside down and the animated objects become faceless dancers in a constructivist ballet." Vienna Independent Shorts 2010, jury statement by Anton Fuxjäger "Max, AANAATT is one of your most beautiful animations. I often show it as an outstanding example to my students. Above all, the work is NOT just another demonstration of technique or technology, but rather a classic in the field of Visual Music, and a unique example of creative ingenuity and elegant design." Robert Darroll, media artist, 2011
This is my animation Thesis Film done during my time at the Academy of Art University 2010. :) Bridge is a story about four animal characters trying to cross a bridge, but ending up as obstacles to one another in the process. The moral behind this story revolves around how there are often disagreements or competing paths in life, and the possible results of pride, obstinance, and compromise.

This piece was originally conceived as a part of CG set for a commercial spot about hamburgers throughout recent American history. However, the potential also existed for the set to be the stage for a visual exploration in lighting, composition, and cinematography. So the assets were repurposed to try and achieve that goal. The lighting was originally intended to evoke a sense of an old game show stage after hours, think Price Is Right Showcase after the lights have gone down. Although it did evolve, it should still capture that low-lighting feeling. Color correction was performed in After Effects to try and achieve the look of an old photograph. The popular "Instagram" presets were a big inspiration. Mental Ray was the primary renderer and Adobe products were used for texturing, compositing, and editing.
'Gulp' is a short film created by Sumo Science at Aardman, depicting a fisherman going about his daily catch. Shot on location at Pendine Beach in South Wales, every frame of this stop-motion animation was shot using a Nokia N8, with its 12 megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss optics. The film has broken a world record for the 'largest stop-motion animation set', with the largest scene stretching over 11,000 square feet.
