CV

Hi!

 

My name is Jonas. I am pursuing a career within the animation industry first and foremost because it gives me the ability to visualize and share with others what’s in our imagination. I’ve been much inspired by the artists working with animation before me, and I hope to one day be as influential as them to someone else. While I can’t help but love the charm of traditional hand drawn animation, I’m also very excited about the possibilities that 3D offers.

 

It feels natural for me to be part of a team and work hard in order to achieve common goals. It gives me creative energy when I have someone to bounce ideas off. When working with others I like to make sure that everyone is having a good time and that no one feels left out.

 

Apart from animation, I am also passionate about music, and I see myself getting involved with productions, be it feature films, short films or music videos, where I can combine the two areas of interests.

Keep an open mind and stay positive
