Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year 2010 guys!!!!
It is really weird when you realize that it is already another year, but you feel like the one that is already over just started yesterday. Seems like the time is running really fast to me nowadays and I don't think it will slow down, not in 2010, that's for sure. So many great things happened to me in 2009 that I can surely say that it was a damn good year. But I have the impression that 2010 is going to be even more crazy for me :). I don't know what will happen exactly in 2010, but what I know is the fact that I want to enjoy every single day. There is no time to waste, it's just running to fast. So what I wish for myself and you guys too - enjoy every single day of 2010!

Happy New Year!

The Gruffalo!!!

Hi guys!
I have some great news about The Gruffalo! First of all, I had a great pleasure to watch the premiere in the cinema in London full of parents with children and I have to say that the movie looks awesome! And what is most important, audience really liked the movie! Woohoo! It felt really great to watch my own shots and look around in the cinema to see the reaction of the audience :).

All of you, who are lucky to have BBC One will be able to watch the movie on Christmas Day at 5.30! Don't miss it! It's a really great adventure to watch on the screen, especially if you have small kids!

Here you can see some shots from the movie:

Light Up Your Christmas

Enjoy!!! :)

Speaking of animation

There is the great new website very similar to animation podcast called "Speaking of animation" created by Ben Willis, Adam Strick, Jacob Gardner and Stephen Melagrano! You can already listen to the first interview with Ted Ty, animator who worked on Pocahontas, Mulan, Lilo & Stitch, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda and Shrek Forever After! Very cool and inspiring! Great job guys!


Check this out, really cute shortfilm. And it is online for the christmas time!

Back from Berlin

Hey guys.
Yeah, it's been a while since I wrote my last post here. As some of you might know I moved to Berlin in March for half a year to work on a shortfilm "Gruffalo" based on the Julia Donaldson's book. I have to say, that I had a blast! Man, I don't even know where all that time flew! I feel like I moved to Berlin yesterday, but now I am already back home in Poland.
I learnt so much over there, but what is way much more important, I met awesome fantastic people over there! Entire Studio Soi team was just amazing! It really felt like home not like a studio to me. Since the main studio is located in Ludwigsburg, we were just a bunch of animators and two directors in Berlin. And we were not like co-workers really, we were more like a group of friends hanging out together after work too! I already miss you guys so much!
I have to thank all of you guys for so many things.
Tobi, man, thanks for everything! I wouldn't be there if not you. I owe you a lot bro and I hope someday I will be able to do the same thing for you.
Thomas, stop complaining about your "mediocre" art like you used to call it. You are one of the most amazing multi talented people I have ever met! And guess what, I am going to receive my drums very soon. Thanks for the lessons ;). If you will go to Australia, have a blast over there man, just have an awesome time, which I am sure you will have!
Alli - dude, you know that you are the positive energy bomb! Thanks for that man. Thanks for all the good time we spent together, all your help and advices animation wise. I am really gonna miss our subway conversations :).
Small Max - haha, dude, thanks for all the feedback and patience when I was asking you all those questions about where things are located on the server etc. And thanks for using orgasmotron on my head from time to time, I really enjoyed that ;), but I was shy to admit it ;))))))))
Pit - I am gonna miss you champ. I still remember the discussion when you said that you are the world champion and how everybody's jaws dropped on the floor :))). It was a real pleasure meeting you Peter, good luck in your animation career, I hope we will have a chance to work together again! Who knows, maybe in Berlin again?
Louis - how's France bro? I am sure you have a lot of fun working on the new project. Gonna miss your fun vibe and accent too :). I still can't pronounce your french "throat Rrrr". LOL.
Uwe - hehe as I already told you, I still have to come for a session and just watch all of your sketchbooks, there is a lot of pure gold inside
Jacob and Big Max - thanks for being awesome directors. It was real pleasure to work with you guys!

I also have to thank you Patrizia! You are an awesome person and I feel extremely lucky that I could be your flat mate for half a year. Thanks for showing me a little bit of Berlin, thanks for our discussions in the kitchen ;). I wish you all the best and I hope everything will work out with your studies. I am already keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Oh boy, it was an awesome ride. I think Berlin changed a lot of things in my life, and it changed me for sure. I could write an entire huge post about things I learnt about animation and working on a project like "The Gruffalo", but I have the feeling that I learnt much more about myself and life, and the way I want to live it. In that way Berlin was an amazing experience and really became my second home. I truly love that city for what it is, mostly for fantastic people.

And here are the photographs of me "working" ;) and the team.
