Hey my name is Jacob Frey and I am a former animation student from Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg in Germany. I am currently working at Walt Disney Animation Studios as an Animation Trainee.
Here's a little bit about myself:
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".
Recently I finished working on my latest short film "The Present" which is currently being screened on film festivals.
