Studio Smack are Ton Meijdam, Thom Snels and Béla Zsigmond. All three of them studied at the AKV|St.Joost in Breda (Art Academy), The Netherlands. Before now their animated fims gained awards at international film festivals. Studio Smack produces work that in the first analysis has an autonomous value, but often also responds to developments in society; the so-called Design for Debate. At the moment they are working on two of their own projects: the series 'Kapitein Reetneus', and an animated short telling the story of 't Turfschip van Breda'. Some of their clients have been VARA, VPRO and MTV NL, Greenpeace, Museum Of The Image, Graphic Design Festival Breda, Festival Mundial, ON, Museon.
