Finished off a great Modo tutorial by Vaughan Ling at Heavypoly, focusing primarily on modeling and rigging/animation (schematic workflow). When completed I did some additional texturing as well for practicing. I worked for the most part with procedurals.
(Some elements of the geometry lack details as it was not intended for close up viewing. I may revisit the project later for some extra editing, but for now I think the overall look is fairly balanced.)

Visual identity for a norwegian record label. Their primary focus is releasing content within the genres of minimal electronic music.
The name Fnugg means a small or tiny particle floating in the air like dust or snow. In its simplest form a particle can be rendered as a circle or a square. The latter soon became the foundation on which the identity was built upon, resonating with the electronic (digital/pixels) and minimalistic music coming from the label. Where possible typographic compositions and grid systems are all constructed with the square in mind, making it the most important visual tool of the identity alongside spaces of white and yellow.
The project is partially realistic, meaning the label exists but has not yet produced the amount of content presented below. For this reason most of the photos/cover art are stock images.

Franz Kafka´s "The Castle" bound by hand based on traditional Japanese bookbinding. The binding plays a key role in the design indicating a locked situation, holding the label down. The page numbering is repeating this unfree notion throughout the book, appearing beneath the body text.
Music video for The Low Frequency In Stereo. Production toolkit: A MIG-Helmet from China, a 250 litres fish tank and some patience to fill it with water, emtying it when shots go wrong, and then fill it up again. A singer without a body also come in handy. The band was nominated for the Norwegian Grammy Awards, Spellemannprisen 2013.
This is a pilot for "Troll i ord". The film was made to promote the product online as well as on trade fairs and exhibitions.

A combination of film and stop motion was used to put the pilot together.

Title sequence for a short film by Brian McAllister. The job consisted in creating graphics which could emphasize the nostalgic small-town atmosphere that is very much present in this story. The hand drawn serif titles reflects this nostalgia, as well as bringing a personal aspect to the sequence.
Title sequence for the The Messenger - The Story of Joan of Arc, by Luc Besson. The movie is violent and gritty. The battle scenes and surroundings are authentic portrayed and, apart from the supernatural parts, little obvious digital effects are used. I try to reflect this authenticity by presenting the visuals in a draft-like manner.
