Wow. It's been more than a year since my last update here. Time flies :)
Here's a quick update. I left Oktobor Animation back in October last year after 2 and half wonderful years in New Zealand. Best place I've ever worked!.
I went back to Norway to study music composition and orchestration and I'm currently working freelance (and studying) as a composer and animator. Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need a score for your projects :)
I also got a new website up and running: www.martinkirkhaug.com. Head over there to check out my music and some recent animation.
Thanks for all the support in this blog over the years. The journey continues at my new website. All future updates will happen there!
all the best,

From The Animation Guild:

Maybe he was having "creative differences" with the powers that be, maybe it was something else. - Read More Here

In a letter sent to his co-workers, he said that while the studio has been his “artistic home,” he had decided after “long and thoughtful consideration” that there are “endless new territories to explore” and so he is moving on. - Read More Here
