Dutch Visual Effects professionals unite in NVX

Friday September 11th saw the foundation of the NVX - The Netherlands Visual Effects Association. This association strives to gain improvement, professionalization and recognition of visual effects in the Netherlands, and will annually hand out the NVX Award to the best visual effects in a Dutch production. 


The NVX will act as a stage for members to share their knowledge and experience with each other, and it will also organize lectures, seminars and meetings. This year the NVX VFX DAY at the Netherlands Film Festival will be held on Saturday the 26th, where guest speaker and Oscar winner Paul Franklin will give an inspiring presentation on the visual effects for INTERSTELLAR. The NVX Award will also be handed out that day.


We're happy that STORM VFX Supervisor Luuk Meijer is part of the current board, together with Hans van Helden, Dennis Kleyn, Florentijn Bos, Kasper Oerlemans, Thaumar Rep and Albert van Vuure.

New for Now. Rijksmuseum

Friday, June 12, 2015

From 12 June, the Rijksmuseum presents a major retrospective of its rich collection of costume and fashion prints for the first time. 

The change in women's and men's fashion from the year 1600 up to and including the first half of the 20th century, and the development of the fashion magazine into the fashion glossies we know today, can be seen in more than 300 prints. 

The exhibition was designed by designer and co-curator Christian Borstlap, in collaboration with fashion illustrators Piet Paris and Quentin Jones.


We were commissioned by director and designer Christian Borstlap to make an animation for the exhibition.  Animation by Bart Otto

The Caméra d’Or is the award given for the best first feature film presented in one of the Cannes’ selections. 


Land and Shade premiered at Semaine de la Critique in Cannes and received three other prices earlier this week: the France 4 Visionary Award, the Rail d’or prize and the Society of Dramatic Authors and Composers SACD Prize. Land and Shade becomes the first Colombian film to ever win the Caméra d’Or in its 36 years of existence, and it becomes the fourth Latin American film to win the award.
