  • Romain Cousin - There is such an incredible amount of detail in this piece, between the design, animation and audio sync. Every little move matches the sound perfectly! Romain created such a unique beautiful space! Bravo! Time to watch again!
  • Totoro - The idea and execution behind this animation is super creative and fun! Thomas seemed to pull out sounds I didn't even realize were in the original audio! Awesome work!
  • Dmotion - Dmotion's piece really lives up to the title "Living Colors". The audio sync is spot on! Very bright and original work with a lot of cool details!

Marcus Eckert

Marcus Eckert is a talented motion designer based in Germany, who is totally at ease either in graphic design or with keyframes. An interview of Marcus, together with part of his creations, can be found in this article.

  • Forbesii - Very creative interpretation of the sound effects, the erratic camera movement fits perfectly and the general pacing is exciting and engaging. Great job!
  • Fabiantheblind - The minimalist, chromatic aberration style is a nice take on the atmosphere. It’s minimalist but uses the movement in conjunction with the sound to great effect. Love it!
  • Soja - Great style and it actually manages to tell a story while still incorporating all the sounds in a fun, convincing way. Well done!

Obny

Olivier was the one who created the sound that was used as a basis for this competition. Thanks again to him for creating a sound track that allowed many of you to have great fun in this contest!

  • DMotion - The universe is peculiar and peopled with small weird creatures. He has made a good job around the title, and therefore of the typographic design. This creation is very personal and it makes you want to have it in a game!
  • AmonLap - The animation is fluid and shows a good attempt at geometrical investigation, with a certain taste for abstraction. Synchronization on the sound track could have been better, but the concern for graphic details makes up for it. The design is very neat and smart!
  • Alexwaza - The subject matter is treated with very few elements, but everything does make sense. The audio track has been used as a basis to develop the story telling. Well, it’s very minimalist and great fun!

Mattrunks

A high number of good quality pieces were achieved during this 8th contest. Many thanks to all participants – I do hope that you enjoyed yourselves and were able to make progress. My top-3 choice in the current edition goes to:

  • DMotion - He has managed to create a universe in itself that is colourful and lively and sticks to the theme of the competition. The small creatures are endearing, and it is visually very rich. I had a good time examining this creation that was my favourite in the current contest.
  • Totoro - I have a soft spot for 2D animations and I appreciated all these solid frame-by-frame hand-made special effects very much. It is very dynamic with nice transitions. This is yet another lovely achievement by Totoro, who is making clear progress at each and every contest!
  • Romain Cousin - A neat and colourful piece, good synchronization and a nice mixture of careful 2 and subtle 3D animations. I love it!
