The event


Lucas Zanotto

Lucas Zanotto

Lucas Zanotto finds his origin in Milan where he graduated in product- and graphic design. After his study he worked for different international design studios, during this period of time he slowly grew more and more interest in directing.

He is an motion designer who loves to mix different media and is always experimenting and exploring new ways of creating animations. What is key for Lucas Zanotto is that his work feels very modern and analogue at the same time that has to do with the way he combines classic animation and digital media.

In Cannes his work received a Golden Design Lion and he got rewarded Gold at the Promax International, the HAFF, the ITFS and also at the Ottawa Animation Film Festival.

I Saw John First

I Saw John First

John Christian is a versatile director and artist who goes under the name ‘I saw John first’ is based in London and Oslo and is also represented respectively by Strangebeast (UK) and Animasjonsdepartment (Norway).

After he graduated BA in Moving Image at Central St. Martins, John has continued to play and educate himself. He grew up in rural Asker in Norway and still he gets his inspiration from long aimless and self-entertained walks. These walks usually result in sketchbooks filled with odd ideas.

This odness and aimlessness is also very present in his work because there is some type of restless progression which comes in all different type of mediums and techniques he works with. Be it live action, stop motion, compositing, puppetry, prop making and 2D animation.

Anna Ginsburg

Anna Ginsburg

Anna Ginsburg is born and raised in London, after completing a Foundation course at Camberwell College of Arts she studied Animation at Edinburgh College of Arts. Since leaving Edinburgh she returned to London where she now has a studio.

Anna pushes the realms of what is possible in terms of live visuals, music videos and animation. Most recently she directed a short film for Selfridges ‘Material World’ exploring sustainable fashion using 2D animation.

Her first music video for Bombay Bicycle Club’s ‘How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep?’ won a Bafta at the New Talent Awards, since then Anna has received incredible praise for her film ‘Private Parts’, which was screened at film festivals worldwide.

Greg Barth

Greg Barth

Greg Barth comes from Geneva, Switzerland and is currently based in London. He makes boundary pushing films that are constantly surprising and mind blowingly executed which has to do that he builds life sets that are so immaculate that they hardly seem real.

Greg might start with a simple idea, but he takes that idea and pushes it as far as the form will allow, taking the viewer to places they have genuinely never been before.

Therefore it’s not odd that there is a list of awards and nominations. Most recently he won the Graphite Pencil at the D&AD (Hello Play 360) in 2016 and a first place (Fortunes) at the Young Directors Awards in Cannes 2014.

Patswerk is an illustration & animation studio, based right here in The Hague. The studio was founded in 2008 by long time friends Ramon Avelino, Rogier Mulder and Lex van Tol.

Patswerk produces bold illustrations with attention to detail, for a range of national and international clients. Their work is playful and often colourful. They like to incorporate fun characters, clean lines and the occasional moustache in their designs.

Ok.. make that a lot of moustaches. The guys are also pretty enthusiastic about beers. So especially for this edition of Cinetoko, they brewed a limited edition beer.

From Form

From Form

From Form is a Rotterdam-based film and design studio founded by Jurjen Versteeg and Ashley Govers. They’re passionate about working across print, spatial and film. Their projects include set design, photography, commercials, title sequences and graphics.

The common thread that runs through their creative approach is their interest in building worlds based on meticulous attention to detail. The duo constantly explores different materials, textures, forms and processes.

These experiments helps them to create immersive visual experiences that come to life on screen, on paper or in a 3D space. From Form often combines digital and analogue approaches within the same project to create playful, engaging and memorable work.

Meanwhile it’s ten years and 38 Cinetoko’s later… and we’d like to celebrate this milestone together with you during Cinetoko Fest 2018.
