About

 

With a wide range of skills in the field of animation, I have experience working as an animation director, animator and generalist on a wide range of projects, working with people from all over the globe (USA, England, Turkey, Dominican Republic and more), as well as having a broad network in the Danish animation industry, having worked with Danmarks Radio and producer, Jakob Stegelmann, and The Animation Workshop among others.

My work especially draws inspiration from the Japanese animation cultures, with names such as Hayao Miyazaki and Shinchiro Watanabe being my biggest sources of inspiration. It is the path of such great animation directors that I wish to walk down.

Education

 

The Animation Workshop (CA program), 2015-2019

The Character Animation (CA) program focuses primarily on the theory and practice behind making a character move and come to life. Each year focuses on a progressively more intense curriculum that guides students on the path toward mastery of both 2D and 3D character animation and provides experience with other industry techniques.

 

Visuel HF, 2012-2015

Projects: HUNT (media studies final film), Over (Odense International Film Festival project), Festive (Viborg Festuge commercial trailer project), Grundvand (Grundfos client collaboration project), Semina (Nature studies presentation project).
