Jonas Odell is the director behind some of the most distinctive music videos, commercials and short films of recent years. He has a reputation for working at the cutting of edge of mixed media techniques combining 2D, 3D animation and live action.
It’s not surprising that Jonas was voted as one of the top 100 animators of all time in a survey of world animators organized by Channel Four. His short ‘Lies’ won ‘Best International Short’ at the Sundance Film Festival 2009 and its predecessor ‘Never Like The First Time’, won him the Golden Bear award at the Berlinale International Film Festival. Other awards include a Grammy nomination and win at the MTV Music Awards for the Franz Ferdinand music video ‘Take Me Out’.
Jonas has gone on to create videos for artists such as Goldfrapp, Rolling Stones, U2 and The Hours. Commercial work includes BMW, Virgin and MTV.
