Group shortlisted for Best Short Animated Film
Job, Joris & Marieke’s A single life has been shortlisted for the Academy Award for Best Short Animated Film 2015.
Directed, animated and produced by Job, Joris & Marieke, A single life is all about Pia, who after playing a mysterious vinyl single is suddenly able to travel through her life at different ages and stages all within the space of one song. With Job, Joris & Marieke’s stunning character designs, beautiful music and vibrant animation we really aren't surprised those people at the Oscars love Job, Joris & Marieke as much as Jelly does!
