Boris Sverlow has been creating art ever since he was able to hold a pen. Born in 1986 in Antwerp, he didn't think he would become an animator when he made his first drawings. But then, in kindergarten, he saw his first animation movie and a staring turtle named just like him, left a deeper impression on little Boris. Finally, when his father borrowed a Video Hi8 camera from a friend he started to work on his first clay animations: "The camera could be set to frame by frame recording and capture the images directly onto the tape. Because editing software didn't exist back then, everything was by nature a one take." Then much later near the end of secondary school, Boris started with simple flip-book animations and continues: "Inspired by the magic of movement I made an animation for my final exam project the following year and eventually this led me to explore animation in higher education."

RebusFarm decided to support MOAS - Migrant Offshore Aid Station with donating 500 post-rescue-sets.
MOAS launched its third Central Mediterranean mission on the 8th of June 2016 with a fleet of two search and rescue vessels, four rescue launches, and two humanitarian drones. The operation includes access to two on-board clinics, a professional and experienced search and rescue crew, including rescue swimmers and a team of medics.
In its first two weeks of this operation, the Migrant Offshore Aid Station rescued over 2,000 men, women and children in distress at sea bringing the total number of people saved and assisted to over 16,000. Once on board, all beneficiaries receive post-rescue assistance, medical treatment and supplies like dry clothes, rations, and water.
RebusFarm has donated 500 post-rescue-packs including food, water, dry clothes and a blanket to MOAS´mission in the Central Mediterranean.
MOAS' Matthias Dentler says: "MOAS is a 100% privately funded charity and relies on the support of private donations like this one to keep operations afloat. This latest donation from RebusFarm helps enormously and their ongoing support gives the team motivation. We thank them for their contribution and hope it inspires others to act."

You might ask yourself what this title is all about. Well, it's been a while now since we kind of secretly started this little project with a group of students from the Cogswell College course "MediaWorks". The Digital Media School is based in the heart of Silicon Valley in California. "Media Works" is a collaborative program that brings together students from the Audio and 3D Departments. The aim of the project is typical to create a short audiovisual piece for a partner organization. Students are asked to produce animated logo short movies or sequences that include sound design, original music, and animation. They must work through the entire production process, complete with real-life client meetings, creative briefing, concept generation, participation in the approval process, project and time management, deadlines and full-scale production individually, in teams and cross-teams.

RebusFarm decided to support Oxfam Germany with their campaign "Unternehmer für Unternehmer" - "Companies for Companies". The purpose of this campaign is to support individuals in third world countries on becoming more independent. In groups, they receive education and support on their entrepreneurship which leads them to more autonomy. Oxfam International understands that many causes of poverty are linked: "The injustice of poverty demands a powerful and practical response to address both its causes and its impact on peoples' lives."
Please join us and support this great organization!
