Beakus Signs Animation Directors David Pocull and Luiz Stockler
From the release:
Beakus is feeling pretty lucky right now – we went looking for new talent and not one, but two super-human animation directors came our way, so we signed them both!
Barcelona-based animator Pocull is a seasoned pro, having worked in London and New York as a director, animator and creative studio boss. His beautiful 2D work shows a flair for colour, with a strong graphic identity all of its own, having worked for the likes of Samsung and TV3.
Brazilian-born, Welsh-trained and London-living Luiz is a master of the animated line. His pared-back, observational humour is legendary, and a hit on the festival circuit (scooping awards at Stuttgart and Early Melons, yep…) as well as clients such as Red Bull. If you watch just one thing today I urge you to watch his short Home, which is a quick-fire meditation on everything we hold dear.
