Born 1995 in Saxony, Julia Thonig grew up next to the forest in the German countryside. During her Illustration studies at Akademie für Illustration and Design Berlin, she developed the concept of her debut film ALPHONS’ ADVENTURES - The Bird God. After that, she moved to Stuttgart to finish this no-budget project together with a remote team. Besides, she works at Studio Film Bilder as production supervisor for children’s tv series.
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.
Julia Thonig spends the most of her free time with mountain hiking, climbing, cave exploring and trekking to develop more episodes for her adventure series.
