I had the pleasure of having Ferdinand as my mentor while animating for the video game “The Inner World – The Last Wind Monk” for six months. Ferdi always gave me great advice as well as constructive feedback and help whenever I was stuck somewhere.

Having someone who shared their great experience in both theory and practice – in a such a motivated, yet patient way – really helped me develop my animation skills better than I could ever have done alone or in class. I couldn’t have hoped for a better mentor


Your mentor: Ferdinand Engländer

Hey there, I studied animation at the Filmakademie Baden Württemberg and have over 5 years of professional experience.

I create animated ads and explainer videos for a living, but I also worked on a couple of bigger projects. I was the Lead Animator for the adventure game series “The Inner World” and worked on the BBC TV series “Patchwork Pals” as a layout artist and 2D rigger.

On Animator Island I like to hunt for what makes animation truly outstanding and what takes a story from the screen to a special place in our hearts.

This session is meant for a beginner to intermediate level and focuses on the universal principles of animation, acting and storytelling – not on software. However, I might be able to assist you with ToonBoom Harmony, Adobe Flash, Blender, Maya, After Effects…

I can also help you with planning and organizing your project.
