It's Puur Media's  policy to keep developing and learning . Every year we go to  workshops at IBC often thought by Oscar winners.

On Friday the 24th of April we attended the Cinema 4D  Benelux event. The most inspiring  workshop was given by Joris Oprins, from Job, Joris  Marieke. Their short animation, A Single Life, was  Academy Award nominee 87th Animation Short  Film Category Joris Oprins shared about how they find new ideas for their animations.

Oscar nominees use PC's 
Unlike most visual artist Job, Joris  Marieke. use PC's. It is good to see when people  choose tools that work the best for them and do't go with the flow of tradition , trends and

short film was nominated for an Oscar or not
In America, they spoke to animators at Pixar. The people there were very interested in how a three-person studio works.  We also notice that the big Hollywood production companies are interest in small teams like us.

Afterwards we had an opportunity to talk with Joris he shared that they were self-taught animators. He's been animating for some 12 years now and it has been six years that they've been working together as a studio.
