It happens to every parent in the world. Your kid wakes up in the middle of the night – screaming his lungs out. You’re panicking and your imagination goes wild…Did he/she hurt him/herself? What happened to my kid?

Animated in Storyboard Pro. I put my little boy behind the mic for some good screaming.

The idea is based on a real experience. It happened one time that he woke us up – screaming – just to tell us about a Maya the Bee episode. ‘Willy is stuck in the bottle daddy! And Maya has to save him.” But recently he’s been dropping his pants doing the bubble butt dance.

NWAVE Feature film studio


NWAVE was featured on Belgian TV. They talk about the new film CORGI and the the current film in production BIGFOOT 2. I’m the bald guy at the start of the clip tracing a drawing for no reason at all! And you can see some of my drawings as well. Bigfoot is killing drones! It’s going to be a super exciting film!

Why do ad agencies need storyboards?


Storyboards are a means to communicate. A professional storyboard artist can translate that brilliant idea you have for a commercial to your client. The clearer a storyboard is, the better it communicates. The better it communicates, the more money you save in the long run.

Why would you hire a freelance storyboard artist? Not everyone can make a decent storyboard. You have to know a fair bit of film making and have the ability to draw well. Also, a storyboard artist is a trained storyteller and can give that extra punch to your project. Even though Bart from accounting can do a fair bit of drawing, if the client doesn’t understand what you’re about to do, you will lose the sale.

How can you justify the extra cost of hiring a freelance storyboard artist? You actually save money. The storyboard artist draws out your idea and can make it easily into an animatic. An animatic is a moving storyboard. Even sound can be added to make the experience better. Your client can now visualise your idea and give comments. This way the client will feel more involved in the project. Corrections can easily be made and before you start the expensive shoot, your client will know what to expect.

How long does it take to finish a storyboard? Or an animatic? This is the good bit. Depending on the length of your project and the complexity you can have your storyboard ready the next day. Call or e-mail PARTOON EMPIRE and we get it done!

Animation, stop motion

My first professional stop motion job!

Very short though but a lot of fun to work on. I planned and directed the animation on set and did most of the preproduction. The very talented Dries Bastiaensen helped me out with building armatures and with the animation. We did some long hours…Our hand model had to come to the studio around midnight to catch some cookies. Kudos to Isabelle! We also had an amazing and patient DOP, mister Tielevisie!

We had to do a lot of post production done by Jan Daghelinckx, Kristel Dom and a tiny bit by yours truly.

So yeah…A short clip but lots of people were involved in the end 🙂


2D Animation, Animation, Character design

I animated a couple of commercials for BOSTOEN. Production: SABOUGE, Agency: Vandekerckhove&Devos

The concept of the next clips is a gameshow with two houses as candidates. They both claim to be energy efficient houses but which one is the real one?

Tochtdichtheid; The house on the left has a bit more difficulties keeping the air inside.

The house on the left has a bit more trouble with the summer heat…

The left house has serious troubles during the cold winter!

The left house spills Energy like mad!

Let’s see which house can get more funding!

A commercial for Bostoen. We see an old house, wasting a lot of energy and it gets kicked out of the screen by a new, passive house that doesn’t spill energy at all. More and more of those houses pop up etc…Took me 7 days to finish. 3 days of designing and storyboarding and 4 days of animation in Toon Boom animate. Copyright Sabouge.
