animator and visual artist

Animator, set designer and visual artist Vera van Wolferen combines the best of every world. She creates physical worlds, combines it with digital storytelling,  makes from objects, animations and gives her audience a peek into her amazing craftsmanship through her DIY kits.

Vera is no stranger to Playgrounds. We had the pleasure to guide and coach her in our Next Talent Program. In this trajectory she developed the amazing interactieve installation  Thought Hopper 3000.

And at this years The Art Department she will practice paper-art live in our artist studios.

Currently, her animated short film Down in the Dumps is in production. It’s a paper cut-out animation for children between the ages of 8 and 12. The story is about two neighbours, an outsider cockroach and a perfectionist ladybug with a dark secret. It’s a story about feeling left out and not belonging. While the cockroach and the ladybug seem very different at first glance, they actually have a lot in common.
