For a great animation, contact me now!
Jakub Sporek is an experienced independent 3D artist/animator, based in Prague.
Many years in production working in different positions, on different teams and in different studios formed him into a professional with vast experience.
He focuses on delivering great work on time, either as part of a bigger team, or taking the responsibility for bigger projects on his shoulders and hiring other freelancers. He prefers to work at his own desk and Mac Pro with a Maya/3Delight license.
I can either be part of your team to help produce something beautiful or I can deliver the animation from start to finish, taking care of all the necessary steps – depending on the budget, schedule and the type of project.
Character animation is what I do best. Either for advertising or TV series.
There is this Zen feeling to it: when you just dive into animating nice characters, watch them come to life and give them a personality. To go with the flow and create some nice action, or touching acting.
Motion design is great for fiddling with undiscovered territories of Maya. Mostly TV Idents/Intros.
I’m always happy to work on new motion design as it unleashes my creativity and I usually find something new. There is this magic to it – just try new things, new approaches and watch something unplanned and (hopefully) beautiful happen.
I also love to unleash my creativity on my personal projects. Not much time for this though – bills have to be paid.
That’s why there is not much there, besides some technological tests and my pride and joy – videos for my YouTube channel KiDS ViDS.
Our cooperation with Jakub started back in 2011 when we started a completely new Czech brand of dairy products for kids “Olmíci” for the biggest Czech milk producer – OLMA. No doubt, there is a significant Jakub’s role in the tremendous success of the new brand. Within 5 years we have done, in close cooperation with Jakub, 27 TV commercials, every single one different and based on an original story. There are plans for a couple more commercials and I’m really looking forward to cooperate again. He is my first choice when it comes to broadcast quality 3D animation.
Jakub is a 3D artist, a highly motivated person with a deep understanding of Maya. He knows his craft inside and out and always finds creative ways to debug render problems and Maya’s workarounds in general. We cooperated on a daily basis and worked on many different kinds of projects for the Centre of Visual Presentation at Czech Television. I could always count on him because of his deep knowledge and creative thinking, which allow him to find a suitable solution for any given project within tight deadlines. Beyond that, he is a very patient, professional, easy going person, an amazing 3D artist, and a conceptual thinker with a sense for details. He is a real asset to any production at every level possible. It was a pleasure to work with Jakub and I cannot wait to see his new 3D work in future.
I’ve done quite a few interesting projects lately. For Czech TV it was the motion design for the new TV show called Tajemstvi Tela and for the Eallin… Read more “Projects and Moving”
