Animated Commercials: Things we don´t know
Jakob Schuh/Studio Soi, Saschka Unseld/Studio Soi

Over the last three years Studio Soi, a young and small animation studio in Southern Germany, has created a variety of commercials, idents, shorts, and series-work.
Jakob Schuh and Saschka Unseld will discuss a selection of Soi's projects and how they came to be. They will share their views on briefs, the pitching proccess, the production and on how every project throws in its very own oddities, its surreal genesis, or simply "things we didn't know".

Born 1976 in Munich, Jakob started his studies at Ludwigsburg's Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg in 1996, where he is teaching since 2003. In 1999 Jakob started working for London's studio aka, and in 2002 cofounded STUDIO SOI, where he since then has designed a number of acclaimed shorts, commercials and titles.
