Niels Hoebers studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven, where he graduated cum laude in 2010 with the stop motion animation ‘Walter’. Directly after graduation he started his stop motion animation studio based in Eindhoven, where he produces complete stop motion productions from concept to final edit.
Niels Hoebers’ work is characterized by the wide variety of different materials he uses in his animations. The creativity with which he approaches each project creates a unique alienation between reality and fiction.
The animations are executed in high-resolution and therefore every detail, as in texture, form, light and composition, requires attention. Hoebers’ background as a designer plays a major role in this.
Niels Hoebers: “For the 14th season of the Dutch TV program ‘De wereld draait door’ (The world keeps turning) I was asked to make a special tribute to one of the best soccer players of all time, Johan Cruijff, No. 14.” See the show here.
