JORIS OPRINS: INSIGHTS FROM AN AWARD-WINNING DUTCH ANIMATION STUDIO
This episode of The VFX Process, we were delighted to be joined by the very talented Joris Oprins. Joris is a screenwriter, producer and is also one of three directors behind the highly acclaimed Dutch animation studio ‘Job, Joris and Marieke’. Together, they have fostered a reputation for crafting visually stunning and emotionally resonant animated films. Joris has made an unforgettable impact on the realm of animation, fueled by a deep love for storytelling and a remarkable talent for breathing life into characters.
We take a closer look at the process behind the short animations "A Double Life" and award-winning "Mute" as we delve deeper into Joris' journey. In addition to sharing his valuable insights and tips, Joris addresses questions from members of our Discord community, providing a glimpse into his path in this industry. Job, Joris, and Marieke's work leaves a lasting impression, not just due to their creativity and innovative techniques, but also because of their distinctive character style. Joris discloses that their character style is rooted in their passion for vinyl toys and their background in stop motion.
Inspired by Joris’ unique vision and ability to bring stories to life, part of our conversation focused on the pipeline he employs and his utilization of softwares such as Maya, Cinema 4D, Redshift and Octane to captivate audiences.
With each new project, Joris continues to push boundaries of animation, leaving an unforgettable mark on the industry and touching the hearts of viewers with his exceptional storytelling expertise.
