Above is a show reel of my animation work. It contains clips from my first year and second year films at Calarts as well as shots I animated for class assignments and a piece I animated interning at Open the Portal. The song used in the video is: Life ( Vlog Music ) by Dj Quads.
My name is Blake Derksen and I am an animator. From a young age I have enjoyed experimenting in a variety of art forms from drawing to origami. After discovering stop motion, I have enjoyed bringing a variety of media to life with the animation technique. Now I am studying experimental animation at Calarts where I continue to grow and experiment with stop motion and mixed-media.
