Studio Job, Joris & Marieke
Job, Joris & Marieke, that’s the name of the animation studio. It’s just their three names: Job Roggeveen, Joris Oprins and Marieke Blaauw. It’s probably the most uncreative studio name ever. They admit it, they’ve put no effort at all in coming up with a better name. Pretty lame for such a creative studio. Doesn’t really speak for them, does it? They’ve made the wise decision to put all their creative energy in our work. And have you seen their work? Imagine how amazing their studio name could have been… They have a weird history considering they’re an animation studio. The three of them didn’t study animation but they graduated as product designers at the Design Academy Eindhoven. During their studies they discovered they had a passion for telling stories and composing music. But designing products + telling stories = very difficult. So animation turned out to be the best medium for us. It’s the perfect combination of storytelling, designing and composing. In 2013 their slasher film MUTE was released. Their second short A Single Life was nominated for an Academy Award® in the category best animated short in 2015. Since then the studio focused on making short films. (Otto) was released in 2015 and it had its premiere at the TIFF festival in Canada and it was nominated for a Rocky Award. In 2016 their 21 minute film Heads Together, made in co-production with Viking Film and VPRO, was released and it has been nominated for a Rocky Award and the Prix De Jeunesse. They’ve just finished their latest short A Double Life, which will have its festival release this fall. Altogether, their films and music videos won over 75 awards and were screened at more than 300 film festivals worldwide.

Režija: Marc Wagenaar
Trajanje: 25 min.
Kada Wolf odbije da se u nedeljnom meču boksa bori protiv najboljeg druga Alexandera, celo selo se okreće protiv njega. On pokušava da ubedi Alexandera da zajedno odu iz sela, ali njegova previše romantična poruka nailazi na zid.
Dante vs. Mohammed Ali
Director: Marc Wagenaar
Duration: 25 min
When Wolf refuses to fight his best friend Alexander during a weekly boxing match, the whole village turns against him. He tries to convince Alexander to join him leaving the village, but his overly romantic message runs into a wall.
Marc received in his hometown Nijmegen his Bachelor in Communications, where he wrote his papers for record label PIAS and the film distributor Cinéart. To develop his passion for film he moved to Berlin on invitation of the award winning documentary maker Viola Stephan. In Berlin he completed internships for Tonmeister Adrian Baumeister at ‘The Post Republic’ and ‘Berlinale Panorama’, and had many different roles on film sets before he founded his own film production company ‘Holy Birds’. Under this name he wrote, directed and produced his first short film HOLY BIRD starring Rolf Kanies (“Der Untergang”). After 4 long, cold days and nights in the woods, the shooting of the film was complete. While HOLY BIRD was still in post production, he’d already completed his 16mm second short film THE EGGMAN starring Lars Rudolph (“Werckmeister Harmonies”, “Lola Rennt”) and Anna Böttcher (“About: Kate”). His films were recognized by film festivals and by the Filmacademy of Amsterdam where he was selected to study directing. With a very own style, highly regarded directors such as Charlie Chaplin, Andrej Tarkovsky, Ingmar Bergman, Akira Kurosawa, David Lynch, Bela Tarr, Ingmar Bergman & Alejandro Jodorowsky can clearly be seen as influences on his work. Currently he has just completed his graduation film ‘Dante vs. Mohammed Ali’ at the Netherlands Filmacademy.
