Above is a show reel of my animation work. It contains clips from my third year and forth year films at Calarts as well as some test shots I animated for my forth year film and a Quaker Oats Commercial at Open the Portal. The song used in the video is: Cruise Around 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 finishing studying at experimental animation at Calarts where I continue to grow as a stop motion animator.
