Project Soho - Studio Rollmops
As part of my master's program in animation, we formed small studios with our peers to do (made-up) commercial work with real clients. With Milan Schweiger, Jennah Kips, Indah Hijmans, and Deborah van Putten we formed Studio Rollmops - named after a funky German and Dutch fish snack that translates to rolled/rolling pug. With many mixed media and more experimental animators on board, we focused on creating unconventional, fresh, handcrafted films and advertisements. 

My role in the studio was 2D animation and character design, as well as some conception, storyboarding, and compositing. Over roundabout three months, we worked for the Eye Filmmuseum in Amsterdam, the Ambassadors, Kaboom Animation Festival, and Playgrounds.
