"After his study at the Academy, Sil spent 8 months in Hollywood, where he entered extensive courses at 'Gnomon, school of Visual Effects'. After completing these courses, Sil worked on a professional Hollywood production as a Visual Effects artist. In this position however, he felt a lack of creative involvement with the artwork, which is why he decided to expand his position as a director and art-director."

Indeed, thanks for posting that, although I didn't watch it all, it I looked great to me. Intelligent people will of course wish Sil well with his direction and art direction and I would like to check out his films when I have a chance.

Yep, that would be the crappy music video Sil helped us do FX for. The director didnt know much what he was doing while attempting an FX driven video that was WAY too ambitious for the tiny budget and schedule even after I warned repeatedly. Was the biggest mess I ever dealt with. The director completely ignored all projections or logic regarding money/time/personel. Late in the schedule he realized he would have to hire more people and dig into his own pocket. He posted an ad somewhere looking for students he could hire cheap. Of course, you get what you pay for. Some were totally unreliable, some made up for their lack of experience with enthusiastic 24/7 dedication and willingness to learn.

And then there was Sil who was humble and fresh out of Gnomon but could actually run rings around the 'Hollywood' director of the project. Meeting Sil was the one good thing to come out of it. High integrity, visionary, easygoing and non-egotistical... you know, all those things Hollywood repels. Sil learned how things work here very quickly and escaped back to the Netherlands to do the video. But he mentioned he missed something about the energy here. I cant wait to see what he does next.

I would ask if LW was involved just to see your reaction Monsieur Rid, but not today.

Fantastic work. Reminds me of another talented young Dutch 3D artist, Renascent (Joost Korngold) http://www.renascent.nl/ who I have been watching for a while.

Speaking of LW tho, I am really surprised there aren't more young start-ups (good designers, too many ideas, time and energy) that Newtek don't promote and help, in order to get more experimental LW out there. You CAN do great things for no money with LW, but the knowledge and industry are weighted towards other programs ..

(Don't get me wrong, I spent half the week in Maya ...)

... for a reason. 'Light'wave is just not ideal for heavy lifting.

Sil came from Gnomon where I believe they primarily teach Maya, and some XSI. No LW used in his work.

Indeed, that should have read ".. knowledge, industry, and features .." :)

All the same, for the kind of polished intro-graphics renascent produces, LW would be nowhere near so far behind.

That, as opposed to Sil's work, which pushes the limits, both in creativity and outcome (certainly the limits of what we expect from a one-man team).

Although it looks slick and stylish, I personally didn't 'click' with the video.

Cheers!

I love the effects and the editing, and, the music is very cool (although it's not my thing - I'm more of a rock guy).
Those animations of that girl look incredibly real in most of the shots. If I didn't know (assume) it was all CG, I'd argue that it's a mixture of CG and real, where the girl is concerned.

Five months! How/What did he use to render all of that in five months?

I liked the visuals but the song itself was different.

Cool video, but that girl is not CG... no way!

Just to make my point... go here: http://www.silvanderwoerd.com/

If all was CG, why having people that work with:
Hair and Costume Design
Underwater Camera

?

OK, good. I was kind of worried there. I know I have alot of catching up to do where it comes to CG figures, but I was hoping the chips weren't stacked that much against me. :D

music was a second generation copy of Björk..vid was okay but didn't cut often on the beat so felt 'off' in my opinion..seems disconected...which may have been intentional mind you.

fish were nice and the intro lift was nice too.
