Jost Althoff

Director, Illustrator, Animator

I work on a wide variety of film projects and trans-media-collaborations, with a strong emphasis on animation for children’s television. I feel at home in the field of graphic arts, starting with character design and storyboarding, all the way through comics and animation, image-films, trailers, experimental films and short movies.


Please get in touch with me if you have any thoughts or ideas that need to be discussed or if you need design and/or something to be animated. Write me an email via or lets talk: +49-151-15511227

About me

I started as a comic book artist and a cover designer. After having studied screen printing and a little bit about geo-ecology, I proceeded to study at the University of Film and Television „Konrad Wolf“ Potsdam-Babelsberg (2005-2010). After receiving my degree I became a professional animator.

Formerly, I was one of the members of the Fleischerei Screen-printing collective. I also founded the Coyote Screen-printing unit and was a long time member of House of Creatures Animation Studio (2012 – 2016). Now I work as an independent film maker on freelance basis and create or help to create internationally acclaimed (and sometimes even awarded) animation movies at the Talking Animals Animation Collective.
