From time to time I do freelance work for Sveriges Television (SVT). Great place, great people. It's really cool to work with news graphics, you really feel that the work you do matters. Often you only have a couple of hours to do the graphics, animation and rendering so you have to be smart about the decisions, specially take it easy with a lot of filters in After Effects that can take forever to
Coloring and title design for Thelma/Louise
I spend a couple of months between the fall and winter of 2010 @ Thelma/Louise doing things like graphical packages for TV, coloring and motion design. One of the projects was a movie for Borås Komun done to promote the city. The project was finished recently over a year later, they wanted to put in some additional summer footage. I used Apple Color for the coloring and After Effects for the very
@ SVT Nyhetsgrafiken
Greetings summertime! I have the fine luck to be part of the team behind the news graphics over @ swedens biggest TV channel, the great SVT, working with Rapport and Aktuellt. I'm there as an substitute over the summer and then some odd days here and there. Suits me perfect actually.It's very different from what I'm normally used to, the tempo is very high and you have (if your'e lucky) three hours
Finally I got my sh™t together…
Yes, after a long time in the oven (far to long if you ask me) I finally took the time to finalize my 2010 showreel. Like a half year to late but ok who's counting anyway? It's like the best of the best of my freelancing during 1 year, I like to keep them short and intense so it runs just over 1 minute.Includes work for Thelma/Louise, EA, DICE, Filmtecknarna, House of Radon, Biolamina, Ericsson, Filmic
This is what happens on boring days…
I was fooling around with Trapcode Horizon on a boring work day and suddenly this happened. I guess it was there all the time lurking, waiting…She really couldn't stand it anymore… (animated tribute to Jan Stenmark) from Juan Fernando Maguid on Vimeo.
Instead of a boring letter

I put together this little presentation about myself instead of writing a boring letter recently when I applied for a job. It sounded really fun, the work was to design childrens applications and games for the iPad and iPhone, something I have been wanting to do for some time now. And no, I didn't get the job but hey you can't win them all. Jessss.What I Like (animated presentation) from Juan Fernando

Animated music video for DCAP WON
LAY DOWN THESE FOOLS HD - DCAP WON - ANIMATED MUSIC VIDEO from Juan Fernando Maguid on Vimeo.American Hip Hop producer and MC DCAP WON wanted something dark and epic for his track "Lay Down These Fools". And a bewinged creature. It ended up being something you could call a kind of deconstructed urban 3D grafitti (if you are a pretentious peep like me). Featuring a very scary flying baby head from hell.
Commercials for Hästens
I did three commercials recently were Hästens wanted to promote the release of their new expensive looking catalog, I really didn't have much to work with, some old footage shot on 35-millimeter and the idea: Make the transition between the footage and the new catalog. This is one of three it worked out alright considering I just had a couple of days to finish this.
New look for music video
Aloha! New stills from the music video for DCAP WON that I'm working on, I'm now really satisfied with the new blueish look for the video. Really interesting how these things work, you start off with something, you say to yourself "This is the look I'm going for" and the suddenly in the middle of it you go "No godamnit, THIS IS THE LOOK!". Creativity is a wierd thing.I think I want the whole thing
New style & animation test
LTFD-STYLE-TEST-2.2 from Juan Fernando Maguid on Vimeo.Now I really feel that the style of the video is coming together. My general idea is that I want it to look like an abstract graffiti piece falling apart, the shapes coming to life.HD version here.

3D Animation Information Movie for Optea
I did this all CG 3D Animation intro movie for Optea AB a couple of months ago, I only had 5 days for this HD project including animation, compositing, editing and rendertime so I used already built 3D models purchased from Turbosquid and built the 3D City with excellent free Cinema 4D plugin CityGen. I also used a track of mine called "Morning After". I had some problems with the well known GI flicker
