Tobias Schlage

Born in Hamburg, Germany. In his years as a character animator and CG generalist he worked on all aspects of production. He started in Germany and moved to Japan, which gave him a new perspective. European and Japanese film making are very different, and both methods have pros and cons. Combining the best of both worlds, he created a unique style of grounded, emotional storytelling paired with unusual and extravagant visuals.
