Meindbender animation studio has been an active Swedish animation company since 2006. Meindbender is the result of combining the talent of Michael Bengtsson, Olov Burman, Calle Haldin and Tony Österlund.
Although they have a variety of styles, the one that caught my eye was a very tactile stop-motion-like animation with a real clay feeling to it, but having been created in Maya it has the versatility of CG. After their animation test Rabbit vs Football (pictured above), they got commissioned by Cartoon Network to create a series of stings for them. I am really wishing this becomes the company’s brand style and get it developed further.
