About Black Galley Media

Black Galley Media aims to make work and visions come to life on the screen through animation, video editing and graphic design.

Located in Arnhem, Netherlands, and owned and operated by Tim Elfring.

 

“I started editing videos and doing small graphic design work around 2015 for the bands I was in. It was simply cheaper to do those things yourself, and I liked the personal touch it added to the fans who would ultimately get to see it.

 

Black Galley Media did not become official until november 2020. After the pandemic robbed me of all my live shows, I used the freed-up time to become better at graphic design and videography/animation, and I started working for other artists and companies as well. Animation became my absolute favourite form of visual expression. The work grabbed me so much that I now sail profesionally as Black Galley Media.”

Some facts about me and my work

- I use Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro, Photoshop and Illustrator as the main tools for my work. 

- I draw source art by hand, with chinese ink and a brush. That's how I made my company logo, for example. Keywords for my art style are hand-drawn, line art, dark, wavy, abstract. 

I'm a musician: I play drums and percussion (Sowulo), and I also play the Irish bouzouki and I sing (Pyrolysis).

- As a musician, I love working with other musicians, I love working on music-related projects or just projects that have music in them. I'm also fascinated with the rhythm of the audio, and I often let it dictate the cadence of the visuals. 

- I love peanut butter.
