Who is Auke de Vries? Is he a Motion Designer? Is he a VFX Compositor? Does he make short films? Actually, I do all these things and everything in between, because I think variety is what makes my job fun and inspiring. This variety is also my strength: I can give the client a number of possible approaches in motion design and indicate how much time each approach takes. Together we can create something that fits your needs and something we can both be proud of.

After studying at St. Joost Art Academy, I got my Bachelors Degree of Design in 2011. I graduated with the animated short “The Super Rope Solution” which was rewarded with the Tent Academy Award 2011 for best graduation film of the Netherlands. The following five years I worked as a Generalist, Compositor and VFX supervisor at Wenneker in Amsterdam. I also took some months to travel the world together with illustrator/animator Ruth Taylor to visit several artist residencies around the globe. During this inspring trip we did a lot of drawing, animating and visual research. Today I’m a freelance Motion Designer/Compositor who also loves to make his own short films.
