Laurens van der Velden

Used to eat potting soil at early age, now hardcore curling hooligan.

Laurens van der Velden went to the Willem de Kooning Academy after finishing his highschool in 1999. After half a year it became clear that he enjoyed the practical parts of the study more then the theoretical, and so he deceided to visit the Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam. After graduating in 3d and Animation in 2004 he went on to work 6 years as 3d modeller, storyboarder and concept artist before joining the Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark for the Animation masterclass. After this amazing but intense course it was time to sail his own direction.
