Köpfer vom Fünfer

This year’s summer seems to have come to an end. Time to make one last jump into the water!
I am not a good swimmer. But over the years I made myself feel quite comfortable in public pools.
Are you sometimes ashamed of your swiming skills in public, too? I never made it through Seepferdchen… and one time a friend had to pull me out of the water bc I was about to drown in Schwimmkurs and the teacher/trainer didn’t notice or care… Haha. Thanks forever, Sabine! 

I am so happy that my kids love the pool and swimming… and I hope they don’t smell this deep fear of water that’s still lurking inside of me.
This was a rough sketch for a client project that didn’t make it through the pitch. I liked it and the minimal approach… so I added some inbetweens and a bit of sfx and now I am happy to share it with all you swimmers and divers. Funny how the timing of the splash defines the height of the board. 

[among other sounds I used “Splash, Jumping, D.wav” by InspectorJ (www.jshaw.co.uk) of Freesound.org]

Video tip: Transparent Machines

Wenn gut gemachte Motiongraphics sinnvolle Inhalte transportieren lacht mein Herz. Eben in meinem Vimeo-Stream aufgetaucht:

Transparent Machines™ from beeple on Vimeo.

We are the Transparent Machines™ | fullscreen please |

Our society is obsessed with the conflicting concepts of transparency and privacy. We are “outraged” by the actions of the NSA, yet continue to willfully upload more and more of our personal information to Facebook and Google. This film explores the contradictory nature of our actions and beliefs regarding transparency.
