It’s time for a change. Or should we say, it’s time TO change? If we want to save our planet for our offspring, governments need to step up, businesses need to do better, and consumers must take charge. Animation is a highly effective medium for increasing such awareness and - better yet - changing people’s perspectives on things. By clever use of animated characters, which lets you empathise with the earth, a fish, or even a banana, animation will not only inform people, but it will capture their attention effectively and it encourages them to tell others about it. Let's explore how animation can literally change the world: talks and a selection of short animated films are waiting for you.

Next to working on many commissioned films and TV-series, he wrote and directed two award-winning animated shorts that have been shown around the world. One of them is Super, in which main character Albert gets lost in the seductive world of pretty packages.
