WORK WITH US

Studio Soi is currently looking for After Effects compositors. We are going to work on an international 2D cartoon series this year from May to July. 
We are tackling the project with a team of six artists and will produce a total of 60 minutes. If you want to get a better idea of what the show will look like you could check our work on The Amazing World of Gumball. We are looking for artists who have high communication skills since they will work remotely and need to keep in touch with our supervisor on a regular basis. Further requirements are:

  • strong artistic skills including a sense of color, lighting, composition
  • previous experience with After Effect
  • experience with Shotgun would be a plus

If you are an EU or UK artist who will be able to work full time on a freelance basis please reach out.
Just send a link to your vita and compositing showreel to work@studiosoi.de
We are looking forward to getting to know you.

Update May, 5th, 2020: Thanks to everyone who applied. The team is complete now and we are not looking for more compositing artists at the moment.

TO THE ZOO

If your long planned family trip to the zoo got canceled you could alternatively get comfy on the sofa and watch gorillas, skunks and penguins throwing mud at each other: This Sunday the first episode of our show “Boots and Paws” will be shown as part of “Sendung mit der Maus”. It will also be available online.

SWIPE

In our latest short film “Swipe Swipe” children are having a blast. While their parents are checking their mobiles, the children are organizing a party in the treehouse. Shadi Adib designed the short, Johannes Weiland directed and animated the film. It premieres this Sunday on German TV as part of the show “Sendung mit der Maus”.

RECORDING

This weekend Studio Soi’s directors Michael Sieber and Klaus Morschheuser attend voice recordings in Berlin. Our studio is contributing five new episodes to the series “Rico and Oskar” for German TV.

SNEEZE

Exotic plants, a gigantic sneezing flatmate and  tango! Watch our latest episode of “Trudes Tier” this Sunday within “Sendung mit der Maus” on German broadcaster WDR.

CHARACTERS

Social media can be fascinating! How children use their parent’s fascination to their own advantage shows a music clip we’ve recently produced for German broadcaster WDR. The film was designed by Shadi Adib, animated and directed by Johannes Weiland. 
The clip just got nominated for this year’s Tricks for Kids award at the Trickfilmfestival in Stuttgart. But we don’t know yet when it will be broadcast on WDR. So please, do keep on checking your smartphone!

TRUDE TUBE

For the beginning of the New Year Trude is posting videos on healthy body posture. Her flatmate Tier makes sure these videos get spiced up a bit. Watch the new episode “Klickhit” on Das Erste and Kika this Sunday as part of the show “Sendung mit der Maus” or online, if you are in Germany.

DOGS & BEASTS

sitz
Our brand new episodes of “Trudes Tier” are now also airing as part of “Sendung mit der Maus”. Starting this Sunday with the episode “Sitz”, which will be aired 09:30 a.m. on ARD and at 11:30 a.m. on Kika.
The new neighbor confuses Trude’s flatmate with a dog and enjoys petting him a bit too much. He is not a fan of that behaviour and needs to be very inventive to avoid passing by her door.
From within Germany you can also watch the episode online.

ST. MARTIN’S DAY


Traditionally on November 11th, children in Germany go for a nightwalk with their homemade lanterns. Trude’s flatmate Tier has some brilliant ideas on what household items could be turned into a stunning lantern. The only problem is: This year Trude brought a guest! The little girl needs some crafts materials as well. And sharing is not the strong side of Trude’s flatmate. The result is a cold war between the lantern builders! Will Trude manage to re-establish peace on this special day?
This new episode of “Trude’s Flatmate” and five others will air in the mornings of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week. 8:30 am on German broadcaster KiKA.

YEAH! ODE WAS THE ONE.

Shadi’s short film “Ode” won the special price at the 1st Seoul International Public Advertising Festival last weekend. This year’s theme was “Earth Is One, We Are The One”. We couldn’t be happier.
