One Past Two on NTR Kort!

And another website that publishes about One Past Two. This time the shortfilm website NTR Kort, with a short interview:

Een prachtige spannende animatiefilm met een heftig onderwerp welke op dit moment erg actueel is. Gemaakt door Aimee de Jongh (22), beginnend striptekenares en animator. Een jongen en een meisje ontmoeten elkaar bij een bushalte, niet wetend dat ze op de grens staan van leven en dood. Niet te voorzien geweld wordt gecombineerd met de alledaagsheid van het leven, op een manier welke de gebeurtenissen uiteindelijk nog schokkender maakt en een twist aan het einde geeft.

One Past Two on CartoonBrew!

Aimee de Jongh’s One Past Two is about as depressing as student films get. The filmmaker effectively pairs unpredictable violence with the mundanity of everyday life in a way that makes the events even more shocking, and it all leads to a twist ending. Animated in TVPaint, the short was finished this year at the Willem de Kooning Academy in The Netherlands.

That’s what Amid thinks of One Past Two, now featured on the biggest animation blog out there: CartoonBrew! Cheers!

Graduation film “One Past Two” online!

Exciting news! My graduation film “One Past Two” is now online! Please watch, leave a comment and share it with the world.

Turn up the volume and watch in fullscreen! Click on the “vimeo” logo to leave a comment, like, or share.

I also started a website about the film, with some extra background info, credits and a shop. Check it out!
On the website is also a short text about the recent events in Oslo, that made my film painfully relevant. It’s about the role of art in these kind of situations. Please read and share that message as well 🙂

The film might be shown at some festivals later this year, so please keep an eye on the “Screenings” page of the website above. Thanks!

Trailer “One Past Two”

The composer of my grad film, Anne Vanschothorst, made a little promotional preview of my film. I’d like to share it with you as a sort of trailer.


Also, my film ended up as SECOND in the competition for the Drempelprijs 2011, which is a motivational prize for the best graduation students of our school. I don’t like losing, but I can’t say that ending up 2nd of all the graduation projects is a bad thing … 🙂

Comic “En Nu?” in NRC Next

This summer, the finalists of the Benelux Beeldverhalen Prijs make 4 comics about the year 2011. The comics are published in the Summer column of NRC Next. Today… it was my turn! Here’s the autobiographic comic I made about graduating this year.

First the photo of the newspaper, then the original comic. Click to enlarge. Enjoy!
