Urrebuk is a small animation studio based in Rotterdam. The creative partnership urrebuk was founded in 2004 by four former fellow students. Since 2008 it is run by Michiel Wesselius (producer) and Sander Alt (Director / Producer).
We work with a diverse spectrum of media we love to combine techniques. Our challenge is to find the best creative solution that stands out by finding and working with freelancers that are specialists in their own craft. Therefore we are open to new collaborations and co-productions.
