The 3rd Floor is one of a number of animation VFX houses that specialise in previsualisation ("previs") in which digital artists work closely with the director to lock down the look and feel of individual sequences on a project, working fast to make creative choices on camera and character performance.
Sebastian got the job at The Third Floor based on the strength of his demo reel and then a follow up interview.
Sebastian directed and animated a number of successful short films at Escape Studios over the last three years.
In his first year he worked over the summer to complete his fan film Star Wars - the Escape, a six minute tribute to the Star Wars franchise.
Later, in his second year, Sebastian directed two group projects, Assassin's Creed and Planet Mars; the latter has made the official selection for many animation festivals around the world.
Most recently, Sebastian completed Adam & Eve Mk II, which was his final project at Escape Studios and is currently being entered into film festivals.
