Peeter has started making short digital animations already before high school in about 2001. After high school he went to study animation in Estonian Academy of Arts in 2008. There came the idea to do the “Vanamehe Multikas” series which he has been partly doing until today. Besides that he has been doing commercial animation projects in BOP Animation studio.
Mikk Mägi was born in 1987 and is an estonian filmmaker of both live-action and animated films. He works in his production studio BOP! and also in the Estonian Art Academy animation department. At the moment he is working on a short animation called “Solstice” that premieres in the beginning of 2017.
