We are the CANcollective. A group of experienced and passionate animators including Ruud Bakker, Igor Duspara, Steef Jacobs, Jonas Ott and Evert van der Veen. We love to create characters and telling stories. Our individual talents makes us to an all round team with strengths in script writing, storytelling, designing, animating and composing music, which gives us the possibility to deliver a high quality product in all necessary disciplines.
We are four youngsters and a thirtysomethings combining youthful enthusiasm and maturity in one team. The topic stays central in our work, but it is finally the visual workout, which stays in your minds. In that case, we search for the perfect combination of a mind teasing and visually appealing product. Our work is playful and humoristic but serious if necessary.
We all met during our BA Animation studies at the beautiful Art Academy St. Joost in Breda. In the graduation year we worked shoulder to shoulder in a little stinky room under the roof of our former monastery school building. After this one year 24/7 man cave situation, we decided to expand and continue the successfully started working relationship. The foundation of the “collective” was built. And after opening the 398th can of beer, also the name of the collective has been found: It’s the “CANcollective”
