Lightbox: An Interview with Job Roggeveen and Joris Oprins (Job, Joris & Marieke)

// Featured, Independent Animation, Interviews

In the latest episode of our animated mini-documentary series Lightbox, Skwigly meets Job Roggeveen and Joris Oprins of the Netherlands-based animation studio Job, Joris & Marieke.
Together with Marieke Blaauw the team have created several acclaimed shorts including MUTE and the Oscar-nominated A Single Life, as well as several high-profile animated commissions including music videos and the Tour de France promotional spot Le Tour Utrecht – BON VOYAGE!
In this interview Job and Joris speak with Skwigly about the independent nature of the studio’s films, the trio’s working dynamic and the origins of their latest short film (Otto), a dark-yet-endearing tale in which a young girl’s imaginary friend is kidnapped by a woman who cannot have children of her own.
