AUGUST 'POUL' NICLASEN

I’m an artist, director, editor and animator from Denmark.

My graduation film DEEPNESS OF THE FRY has been screened at various international film festivals such as Annecy International Animation Film Festival and others..

I have a bachelor of arts degree in character animation from The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark 2019.

I focus on 2D character animation, storyboarding, film-making, film editing and directing. Furthermore I also have high skills in traditional drawing and painting, and cocktail mixing (what more could anyone possibly dream of?!).

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.
