YCCA 24-Hour Timelapse

For the 2nd year in a row I participated in the Young Creative Circle Award with my co-pilot, partner in crime and classmate; Jonathan Jungløv.

The experience gained from our first entry previous year made the 24 hour assignment more productive and all-in-all a better experience with a final product we are quite proud of. I will post our work in a later blog entry asap.
After being briefed at the Danish School Of Media and Journalism we went back to our classroom a couple of stories higher to kick-off the assignment. We captured (nearly) non-stop work from 5 pm. Friday to 5pm. Saturday – and from almost 9000 images we made this timelapse.
We will definitely complete our YCCA hat-trick next year. Until then, stay classy Copenhagen.

Weekly Inspiration #1 – Motion Graphics

This will be the first chapter in hopefully many to come where I will share some of the best videos I have stumbled upon during the past week. The selected videos will primarily be on motion graphics, vfx and animation – but inspiration comes from everywhere, so I will keep my eyes open!
Please feel free to comment or share links to your work – or whatever may inspire you out there. Sharing is caring.

Get inspired! Get cracking! Have fun!

My Australia Travel Photos

I finally got through all my thousands of photos and got them sorted out. All the photos are taken with GoPro Hero2 and no editing have been made. These are some of my favorites. Bon appetit ;)

PS: Next time I will have a video ready for you guys!

Farewell Australia

Dear friends, family, foes and future fellows,

My first Australian folktale has now reached and end and I am safe and sound back in brisky cool Denmark. I would like to begin with thanking everyone who made this trip possible for me. Family, friends, classmates, teachers and of course all the friendly fellow travellers I have met on the road the past few months – it wouldn’t have been the same trip without you all! I feel very fortunate and privileged to have been able to fulfill a lifelong dream of going to Australia – all expectations totally fulfilled!

I returned to Denmark the 23rd of December and went straight to Struer to celebrate Christmas with family and friends. Afterwards I returned to Copenhagen and moved in with my grand old friend Benjamin’s casa. A lot still needs to be done but I got a bed now nonetheless.

It’s been a very fast paced week with, jetlag, valium backfire from the flight, influenza and my head spinning around with all the lovely people around me, so I do look forward to take it down a notch for a couple of days before going back to school on Friday.

I want to share with you some photos and videos from my trip but I haven’t had time (or energy) to sort them out yet – there are HEAPS – but I promise I will share them as soon as I got them sorted out.

I look very much forward to the new challenges 2013 will bring and I can’t wait getting back to school and get the creativity flowing again. I will start getting ready for tonight’s long expected new years eve party with old friends. Stay tuned in for a lot more to come in 2013!

Happy New Year and don’t let the firework hit the fan tonight!
One love,


Australia Part #6 – Leaving Melbourne

Hey guys. I haven’t had much the last month since coming back from New Zealand. School’s been insane but Thursday I finally handed in my last project. I think it have gone really well and I’ve learned loads of stuff on this semester – so it has been totally worth it, school wise at least. Looking back on the past 4 months rushing by quickly as ever I do wish I had gotten more time to see more of Melbourne and Victoria – but I get it’s down to priorities I guess.
Nonetheless I now have almost 2 month of traveling ahead of me to catch up on being a tourist and tomorrow I will head out for Canberra and spend a few days there before hitting Sydney and continuing up towards Cairns. I plan to spend as much time offline as possible to get a break from the sci-fi addictive internet life so I won’t promise any blog updates as I go :)

I lost all my footage from New Zealand when my camera was amongst the stuff that I got stolen, so unfortunately I don’t have much to show from that trip. Luckily I still have my GoPro cam and here is a few snaps from the past few days I spend exploring the last parts of Melbourne I wanted to see.

See you back in Denmark the 23rd of December – stay classy ’till then!

One Love,

Australia Part #5 – Adelaide


Spring break have been great so far and yesterday I returned from a 5-day timeout trip to Adelaide. The Overland train ride was about 10 hours and it had a beautiful countryside to show off – definitely worth skipping the plane.
Adelaide City architecture has a 60s-70s feeling and vibe to it – not at all like Melbourne which appear much more modern and 21st century-ish. Really charismatic.

Sunday I spend walking around the inner city and some of the older buildings of the South Australian University architecture are great. Its is a lovely city with great park life surrounding the inner city and the River Torrens runs through Adelaide from the coast and inland for about 33 kilometers. It’s a really enjoyable walk along the banks (didn’t went all the way!) and it’s a nice convenient break from the busy city life.

Monday morning I took a train north-west out of the city to Glanville and walked to the sea. It was so refreshing to get out of the city and be by the sea. I walked south all day along the beaches down to Glenelg and from there I took a tram home.

On Tuesday I took a bus eastbound out of the city to Crafers and walked up Mount Loftly which is the highest point around Adelaide (710 m.) From the summit there was a great view of Adelaide and the valleys surrounding the city. I went along one of the many hiking trails down the mountain and walked in to the city. It was beautiful scenery with unspoiled nature, waterfalls and wildlife so close to the city and it was lovely to walk back to my hostel through the suburbs.

It was enjoyable being on the road again – even though it was only for a few days… More to come soon!

Australia Part #4

Finally I could get the time to make a brief update and throw some pictures out there! Things have been real hectic around here lately and it seems rather crazy that I’m almost half way through the semester and project finals coming straight at me with 300 km/h! Things are great – and though there’s tons of school stuff that needs fixing all the time – then I have had a bit of time to enjoy the traveling part of this journey.

So, I’ve been to a three-day camp trip to the Western part of Victoria (the region Melbourne is part of) and saw kangaroos, kangaroos & kangaroos. I also saw a bit of the beautiful “greener”-countryside of Australia, went to some superb winetasting at Seppelt’s, met a lot of (super polite) locals, went to a aboriginal culture center, and got taught a bunch of culture and history of the area (as part of the class trip). I could fit a lot more into that last sentence, but now for the Melbourne part: I’ve been to an AFL game – the thing they call football around these parts. I like the game and it’s like a religion to many people here, but it does not gives them the rights to be calling it football when they are running round with the ball in their hands half the time… Just weird. Not much more exciting adventures to report in at the moment about the life in Melbourne since I pretty much spend time indoor in a 3D world – but life’s good to me and I am absolutely buzzing about being here!

Peace & pictures

<3 Daniel

Alephtion – My new graphics blog

Alephtion is the name of my new blog. I’ve decided to keep my visual labor and my blogging about all-else separated.
The new blog will be regularly updated with my latest work (or work in progress), and I will tend to use it as my online graphic reference. I will be posting all sorts of work – so do stop by once in a while and check it out. I hope you will enjoy it ;)

Visit Alephtion 

… and by the way!; I will post pictures from my camp trip to Western Victoria last weekend as soon as I got time.
