AUGUST 'POUL' NICLASEN

I’m an artist, director, editor and animator from Denmark with a bachelor degree in animation from The Animation Workshop.

During my education I have focused on 2D and 3D character animation, storyboarding, visual storytelling, film-making, film editing and directing. Furthermore I also have skills in traditional drawing and painting, writing, audio editing, and cocktail mixing (I make a fantastic mojito).

I have experience working in the areas of 2D animation, story development, storyboarding, editing and character design, and directing but I’m more than willing to adapt to creative challenges and other areas to accommodate the needs of an employer.
