KOOLE contractors

I have done some work for a big Dutch Salvage company called KOOLE contractors. Most work I did was for their international Maritime Salvage branch. Which means they clean up shipwrecks around the world. The size of the machines they use is impressive. My main job was to visualize and animate their new and innovative concepts. The owner of the company mr. Koole is very keen on developing innovative but ‘cheap’ solutions for difficult Salvage problems. So I can not show all my work I made for them yet. Some are still in development. But I can show you the animation down below that I made. This is one of the solutions proposed by KOOLE to remove containers from the North Sea Seabed that are accidentally dropped their.

Ball in a cup Loop

I made this looping animation of a ball in a cup. The ball makes the wood bounce a bit. I posted this animation on reddit. A few people thought it was real and wondered how this was possible. That was a fun reaction to get. Wait a minute for it to load (is 17mb). I tried several gif makers but or the files became large or cut of some of the final frames making the loop less smooth. So I just posted the whole mp4 here.

All of Bach

For the Dutch Bach Society I made this bumper for their project called ‘All of Bach‘. With this project they will record on video all of Bach’s works. This bumper will be played as an intro on those video’s. In the briefing the Dutch Bach Society wanted to show that different musicians make Bach come alive. It also had to be short. So here is the result.   Bumper All Of Bach from Dimitry Berg – Brainbulb on Vimeo.

On the front you see a bird flying out of a cage. In addition, you can see a number of birds fly around freely. …

Balloon

A balloon has an organic shape. It has round voluptuous shapes. Air wants to escape and is confined by the foil, the air presses on the inside and create the shape of the balloon.

It has a shape, but actually only consists of air. When the air is out, the shape has disappeared. The air mixes again with the …
