MAXON, the leading developer of professional 3D modeling, painting, animation and rendering solutions, announced that its industry-leading 3D software solution, Cinema 4D, was the primary tool used to create “A Single Life”, an Academy Award® nominee in the Animated Short Film category. Created by Job, Joris & Marieke, a Netherlands-based creative studio, “A Single Life” relied extensively on Cinema 4D as its central application to handle the complexities of 3D content creation including modeling, rigging, character animation, lighting, rendering and more.
“A Single Life” is a 2:15-minute animated short film that tells the story of Pia, a young woman who finds a mysterious vinyl single. As she spins the record she is suddenly able to travel back and forth through the years of her life. The three person filmmaking team comprised of Job Roggeveen, Joris Oprins and Marieke Blaauw handled all aspects of “A Single Life” including original idea, writing, directing, designing, animating, as well as creating the sound effects and composing the music. The film was originally created as a part of Ultrakort, a special project of the Dutch Film Fund and the Pathe cinema group where select short animations are screened in front of blockbuster movies. In the Netherlands, nearly a million people have viewed the film.
“A Single Life” has been selected to screen at film festivals worldwide including Toronto International Film Festival, Dutch Film Festival, Bay Area International Children’s, New York International Children’s Film Festival, and numerous others. Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2014 will be presented on Oscar Sunday, February 22, 2015, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center and televised live on the ABC Television Network.
