Animator and illustrator Bram Knol stood out with his high quality animations produced in ridiculous time frames. Music is the foundation of most of his work. During the Next trajectory he took another turn though.
Bram Knol used the trajectory to strengthen his visual style. He did a number of experiments in style and also focused on creating a film plan from scratch. Next gave him the time to develop, re-write, re-think this plan next to his commercial studio.
Jury: “An amazing talent, with international potential. A nearly self supporting and self taught artist. He has an astonishing productivity output, creativity and will power. The jury thinks Playgrounds Next is going to catalyse his artistic focus and give him many tools as an entrepreneur.” At Playgrounds Blend he will give insight in his personal next talent program in an exhibition.
