Rune Spaans | Noruega
Norwegian Rune Spaans, AKA Superrune, is a self-taught visual effects artist and animation director who began working in video games in the 90s before moving on to advanced visual effects, animation and directing. Rune’s versatility and ability to create technically impressive animation with a tight team comes from a deep understanding of the form through his experience of working across commercials, tv and feature films for the past 20 years.
In 2016 Rune made his first short film “The Absence of Eddy Table”. Based on a long standing appreciation of artist Dave Cooper’s oil paintings and cult early 90s underground comic Weasel, Rune evolved the fantastical style and elastic characters from the comics into a darkly atmospheric 3D world, a place where dreams and nightmares collide. The 11 minute short has been picking up awards and recognition in film festivals across the globe."
