Meet an Animator: Waldemar Shuur

Where do you live?

Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Did you study animation at a school or are you self-taught?

I’m self-taught.

How long have you been animating, and what made you become interested in it?

I started animating at the age of 12. I’ve always loved drawing and watching cartoons, so it was an early passion of mine

Do any particular styles or animators inspire your work?

Nothing in particular. I get my ideas from the strangest of places.

Besides animation, what are you interested in?

Mythology, history, cultures, prehistoric life and b-movies.
