João Tiago Fernandes


My background is a mixed one, which informs my practice in different ways:

I have a degree in Fine Arts – Sculpture, so I think of volumes first, and second of lines and colour.
I have a strong background in Music, so I think of sound first, and second of time and pacing.
I love Storytelling, so I think of plot first, and second of scenes and shots.

This all adds up to a practice in Animation that reflects my interest in satire and misdirection.
