Pigeon est un studio d’animation qui crée des histoires captivantes pour le cinéma, l’émission et l’Internet, en mettant l’accent sur les personnages bien conçus. On travaille sur un plan international pour des agences de publicité et des maisons de production aussi bien que directement pour des marques. Vous nous donnez une histoire, on la fait bouger !
O ja cię, czego ta Ania nie robiła! W swoim CV może pochwalić się szerokim wachlarzem umiejętności i branż, w których pracowała. Polonistka z wykształcenia, w życiu przerobiła już niemal wszystko: od gastronomii, przez korporacje, szkołę językową po studia z grafiki komputerowej i UXu. Jej wszechstronność oraz umiejętności organizacji i żonglowania wieloma zadaniami naraz przydają nam się na co dzień: Ania weszła do Pigeona jak tornado i poukładała nam kwestie administracyjne. A poza tym kocha wszystkie zwierzęta (ze szczególnym naciskiem na swojego pieska Cześka), nałogowo miażdży seriale oraz książki i uwielbia gotować. No i sami się zastanawiamy, czym jeszcze nas zaskoczy.
Co-founder of the Studio and one-man band that animates, edits, provides Arabic translations and stays in touch with our clients. Meanwhile – Adobe After Effects evangelist, former freelancer. Always concerned about the clients’ needs, he arranges every single puzzle carefully, so that every project lives long and prospers. When not completing every previously mentioned task, Błażej scours Vimeo in search for inspiration, new solutions and latest trends. He’s not capable of boredom – as admitted by himself, it must be some kind of ADHD. His quirks: traveling, blogging, driving Land Rover. Evening time is perfect for escaping out of the city and the night is perfect for reading. Reading books about traveling that is.
Member of project management squad that takes care of animated series created at Studio Pigeon. Graduating from National Film School in Łódź enabled her to pursue career in film production. She gained experience in New Amsterdam, while working on multimedia exhibitions in II World War museum and Energy Science Centre. What Dorota loves most is working with talented people and she gets psyched the most by projects that change the world. After hours she dives into books, films or music. If not reading Stanisław Lem’s novels, she gets devoted to her two remaining passions - bike riding or avocado munching. In alternative universe, she’s an astronaut and orbits somewhere in the outer space.
Always happy and cheerful. She commenced her career as an illustrator for Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure games. Her ideas pop up in the most random moments ever but no matter where it comes from - the outcome is always going to be perfect. Grupa Smacznego – animation studio in Gdańsk – taught her teamwork and she started to make use of that experience here, as she flew to the Pigeon nest driven by nostalgia for her native Cracow. In the meantime she’s into sewing and being top chef. Her baking is well known as a remedy for autumn and winter blues. Her specialty? Chocolate brownie and lemon muffins. Yum!
Nominated to open Studio’s office in Warsaw. Responsible for advertising projects and client service. No stranger to film production and marketing management – as an example: she ran crowdsourcing projects in MilionYou. After living in Spain, England and Cracow, Gosia fell in love with Warsaw and doesn’t feel like moving again any time soon. Her personal goal is to change perception of Account Managers – they can be creative too! Thanks to completed Audience Design workshops, she’s involved in managing audience for european films. After work she can be found in dark cinema rooms or home, where she dives into various reportages.
Her life before Studio Pigeon is like a blank page to her. Probably she studied animation at University of Fine Arts in Poznań. As an illustrator and ToonBoom character animator, Klaudia has only one rule – simplicity is the key. She is mostly influenced by modern steelworks, anime and David O’Reilly. After hours, she’s into gaming, drawing and internet debates. Known to the world as Javvie – cute little red worm.
You can't see her, but you surely will hear her. Head of Production in Studio, but in reality more like its neck. In charge of schedules, and if you wake her up in the middle of the night, she can easily list all deadlines and correct every coma. Such responsible tasks are the reason that after work she prefers soft sounds of opera or musicals or even blunt silence. Well, unless she breaks it with her contagious laugh.
As a Project Manager she’s driven by perfectionism in every task she’s engaged in. She schedules every part of the project so that everything is oiled and efficient. Former revisor and marketing manager at various Cracow restaurants. Officially known as the very first Pigeon of the Week. She devoted her free time to watching films, buying CDs and complaining about not having what to wear. Cooking? Not so much. You can always spot her laugh, even from few kilometres.
CEO and co-founder of the Studio – responsible for crucial projects. As the sailors might say, he sails the ship smoothly, safe from the icebergs. Previously briefly associated with advertising and film industry – since 2012 devoted to the Studio Pigeon and its development. His life motto is “Get things movin’ ” – constant personal development and getting better every single day. What inspires him most are people he works with and somehow managed to gather together. His greatest challenge is to learn to get up earlier and get to sleep later AND… to learn rigging. He devours favourite books like doughnuts. His favourite words are: render, fuck-up, and of course, PIGEON.
In charge of illustrations, storyboards and animatics. Now working on animated series Hug Me. Before he was trapped in pigeon form, his life consisted of freelance graphic design, altar and sculpture renewal and renovation of paintings in orthodox churches. Before creating a storyboard, he reads the script very carefully and the frames, scenery and character motion just pop right up. At home busy with taming dangerous beast – Bobek the dog. He has still a lot of work with that, as well as with his own animated film.
Motion designer and character animator, fluent in After Effects, Toon Boom and Photoshop. More interested in gaining knowledge about animation software, than his philosophy background. He works fast, sticks to the plan, remembers about deadlines. His best ideas appear while he’s at work. He likes to tell stories in cinematic manner. Literature and design freak by day, Fifa pro by night.
Art Director with a real calling. Academy of Fine Arts graduate, he acquired his title in Lithography Department. His experience in advertising helps him a lot, even though today he's more into animation. Always full of new ideas and always learning how not to waste the best ones. Sociable loner and outgoing introvert - it depends on a situation. Addicted to TV shows and movies, as well as video and board games.
Nous cherchons des histoires qui valent la peine d’être racontées. Nous avons réuni, sous le même toit, les meilleurs talents afin de faire ce que nous savons le mieux – les animations.
Nous croyons que le travail sur un projet et sur les personnages est comme faire connaissance avec une personne – au début, nous avons cette première impression qui se transforme en la découverte de petites choses : la manière de bouger, les comportements, les mimiques pour enfin voir le monde avec les yeux des héros.
