2015 // Omulan!, character and set design slideshow, 7:43 min
The slideshow presents the working process of the two artists who gave to the short animation “Omulan!” its original look: Matei Branea (character design) and Noper (set design). The slide provides a look behind the scene into specifics of Branea's film cast design and a fascinating journey trough the working stages of the set design signed by Noper, from the early sketches and storyboards to the final version.
 
2015 // Omulan!, Spaceship Birdy - set design by NOPER
The detailed backgrounds created by Noper describe a picturesque world in which Matei Branea’s characters are perfectly integrated. Each habitat is carefully built so that it reflects and enhances the personality of the characters. “Spaceship Birdy” grants you access to a very detailed and well engineered set of the film, done by one of the most important illustrators active in Bucharest in the last decade.
