Born 1995 in Saxony, Julia Thonig grew up next to the forest in the German countryside. After her Illustration studies at 'Akademie für Illustration and Design Berlin', she directed and produced her debut film and pilot episode ALPHONS’ ADVENTURES - The Bird God. She worked at Studio Film Bilder in post-production and as production supervisor for children’s tv series.
Julia feels close to nature and spends most of her free time hiking, climbing, cave surveying and trekking. These outdoor activities inspire her to create adventure films. Besides the animated series "Alphons Adventures", she also makes expedition films as a director and editor.

To offer a platform to connect the animation industry, she is the founder and organizer of the Stuttgart ANIMATION MEETUP as well as the Germany ANIMATION MEETUP.
