    Niek Neervens Horizon Zero Dawn Animator

    Woohoo! This is the second post in our series about the wide world of career paths for animators! Sometimes in this industry it seems like feature film is the holy grail, but we have so many mentors and alumni who’ve found great success beyond film. In this series, we're sharing some of their stories.

    Here at Animation Mentor, we are LOVING Guerrilla Games’ Horizon Zero Dawn. It’s fun. It’s unique. It’s gorgeous, and it’s extremely well-animated. We're so excited that one of our own alumni, Niek Neervens from the Netherlands, was an animator for our favorite character, Aloy! Read on to learn more about Niek's journey and what it’s like to be a game animator. Oh, and be SURE to check out Niek’s reel from the game!
