The world of animation is small, and it turns out Narissa Schander has contributed to one of the films in the programme for Commissioned Film, which she was to be in the jury for. Schanders has gracefully chosen to step aside, and will be replaced in the jury for Commissioned Film by Jens Jonathan Gulliksen.
Gulliksen has more than 15 years of experience as an Animator and Animation Director, and has earned a solid reputation within the international stop-motion feature film industry. He has worked on several high-profile productions for names like Wes Anderson, Tim Burton and Laika Studios.
We are happy that Schander still will attend the festival, and is a speaker at Edufest and in the Portfolio Session.
