My name's Jacob and I am currently studying at the Filmakademie in Ludwigsburg, where I am working on my final thesis called "The Present".
During my second year at the film academy I had the opportunity to work as an animator for three months at Black Rock Studios in Brighton, UK. After finishing my third year I decided to take one year off from uni and went to Psyop, Los Angeles where I had the chance to work on several spots such as "Best Buy - Saving Christmas", "Coke Happiness Factory", "Twinnings", "Norton - Stuff" and some others.
Having spent ten months at Psyop I've learned a lot of things about animation and was really thankful for not being treated as an intern, instead as a proper animator.
Coming back to Germany and being back at university I consider myself lucky, getting the opportunity to work on Studio Soi's animated book adaption of Julia Donaldson's children book "Room on the Broom".
Now after six months of working there I am fully back at university and completely concentrating on my thesis.
If you have any questions or any advice on the things I'll be showing here, please feel free to contact me.
