With a happy heart and a tear in either eye we wished Michael Bohnenstingl all the best when he left our studio in 2009. Michi had spent a five-day-internship in our studio when we worked on „The little Boy and the Beast“ and „The Gruffalo“. Later, Michi directed one episode of Trude and co-created our take on Rasmus Klump. Check out his short „Bis Donnerschtag“ which he directed at Filmakademie in 2017. It’s finally online!
We’ll keep on secretly glancing at the front door on Thursdays to check if Michi swings by.
Stuttgart’s Animation festival will happen online this year. The festival takes place from the 5th to the 10th of May. We are thrilled that two of our productions are part of the program.

Studio Soi is currently looking for After Effects compositors. We are going to work on an international 2D cartoon series this year from May to July. We are tackling the project with a team of six artists and will produce a total of 60 minutes. If you want to get a better idea of what the show will look like you could check our work on The Amazing World of Gumball. We are looking for artists who have high communication skills since they will work remotely and need to keep in touch with our supervisor on a regular basis. Further requirements are:
strong artistic skills including a sense of color, lighting, composition
previous experience with After Effect
experience with Shotgun would be a plus
If you are an EU or UK artist who will be able to work full time on a freelance basis please reach out. Just send a link to your vita and compositing showreel to firstname.lastname@example.org We are looking forward to getting to know you.
Update May, 5th, 2020: Thanks to everyone who applied. The team is complete now and we are not looking for more compositing artists at the moment.
