The new floor

    After the first few weeks it started to leak through that Tungsten Studio was reorganizing there workplace.
    We all lend a hand because without help it would have been allot slower and we probably would run late in our planning for the production. So packing, moving, sanding and painting had to be done to get everything look sharp agian.

      There’s a small poem i have about situations like this:

      TEAMWORK ?!
      Long ago there were three people: No-one, Someone and Everyone
      On a certain day there was a important assignment that had to be fulfilled
      Everyone was asked to do this.
      Everyone thought that Someone whould do it.
      And whilst Everyone could do it, No-one did.
      Because of that Someone got mad because it was Everyones duty and now Noone did it.
      Everybody thought that Someone could have done it, but Noone realised that not Everyone wanted to do it.
      In the end Everyone accused Someone because Noone did what Everyone could have done.

      Er waren eens drie mensen:Niemand, Iemand en Iedereen.
      Op een dag moest er een belangrijke opdracht vervuld worden.
      Iedereen werd gevraagd dit te doen.
      Iedereen dacht echter dat iemand het zou doen.
      En hoewel iedereen het kon, deed niemand het.
      Hierdoor werd iemand boos omdat het de taak van Iedereen was
      en nu had Niemand het gedaan.
      Iedereen dacht dat Iemand het had kunnen doen, maar Niemand
      had zich gerealiseerd dat niet Iedereen het wilde doen.
      Aan het eind beschuldigde Iedereen Iemand omdat Niemand deed
      wat Iedereen had kunnen doen.

The first week

The first week of my internship was pretty exciting i got to learn a bit of the workflow of Tungsten Studio and i started a small project for the Aviodrome.

The company has seven employees and allot of network around it so allot of freelancers and other interns are walking in and out the building on a daily bases. The first worth mentioning should be Martin Grootenboer the owner and 1st editor, Collette Grootenboer handles the financial department. The other people that are in the office side of the Studio are Joyce Drosterij (Production) and Wim (Producion Assistent) then we get to the technical side of the Studio.
John Ipkis the post-production expert and smoke editor he has the lion part of the editing jobs because Martin also takes on allot of the acquisition aswell.

Then there is Inbar she’s a After Effects intern who works on a giant projection at the moment for the NSA, and Alex who’s an intern/trainee he is eager to learn smoke and already knows allot about After Effects. This is a few screenshots of the animation we’re working on at the moment.

  • the intern from Jelmer Stolp on Vimeo.

    just a fun video of my first visit to my new internship company?….. dunno if that was a right discription.

      In my awe of it all i forgot to take of my hat. at least i got to see the inside of the studio, which was very nice a small team but a complete pack. i’ve got two take a peek at the most a few were going all out for a deadline they had.
      All in all the talk took about 20 minutes but in-between her work she could look at some examples of old projects.
      So the whole visit lasted for about an hour and a half.
      Next week ill start my internship ill keep up the blogging about my internship under a separate category.
