Watch Jumper on Vimeo
In 2001 I immigrated from Cape Town, South Africa to Germany where i would eventually freelance as an animator and 3d generalist at various agencies based in Berlin. Last year, one of these agencies, m box bewegtbild GmbH offered to produce an idea I had for a 3d short.
The result is "Jumper", a 45 second 3d animation that follows a hooded mystery man through the underbelly of Berlin's nightlife.
My aim was to fuse an animated character with the dirt of it´s urban surroundings, to play with extreme light contrasts and to create a unique, dreamlike ambience to compliment extremely loud music changing into quiet atmospherics.
