Tobias Sodeikat, Malte Pell, Jonas Potthoff
Malte Pell, Jonas Potthoff and Tobias Sodeikat are among the first VFX students at the University of Television and Film Munich (HFF), having begun their studies in 2020. SLEEP TIGHT is their first fully animated short film. Although they hail from different parts of Germany — Bavaria, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, and North Rhine-Westphalia — and have been educated in different ways, all three of them have been making short films from an early age and have always known that this was their calling. They also share the same passion for storytelling and worldbuilding through visuals, with a focus on animation and visual effects.
