How To Train Your Dragon

I went to a screening of How To Train Your Dragon on Sunday... after hearing rumors that the movie is gonna be great I had very high expectations. Man! This Movie blew me away. This is the best 3D animated movie I've ever seen. I watched it twice already and I just can't get enough. I wish I have worked on this movie. Chris Sanders & the Dragons rock!
It's coming out this Friday! Go watch it. You don't wanna miss this one!!!

„Descendants“ is a short I worked on, about the wish of attaining the unattainable and about the fact that something good can evolve from something evil.

The two main characters are flowers (voiced by Whoopi Goldberg and Christy Scott Cashman) who grow on the edge of a clearing next to one another. One is old and jaded by a mysterious history - the other one still young, vivid and curious. Destiny has brought these two together and it seems as if they would exist without possibility for change, until one day a visitor to the clearing brings something unexpected to their lives.

Heiko van der Scherm: Writer, Director, Design, Modelling
