I am very excited to have joined Jellyfish Pictures.

Kevin Hoppe CG Supervisor

Kevin joins us from US VFX studio, Crafty Apes VFX, where he worked as CG Supervisor on season three of Netflix’s award-winning Stranger Things. Before his time at Crafty Apes, Kevin held senior positions at DNEG and DreamWorks Animation, with an impressive list of credits including, Home, Turbo, How to Train Your Dragon and Kung Fu Panda 2.

The creative and positive energy of Jellyfish Pictures is a rare find. The people are so friendly, the work is brilliant, and the projects are challenging and engaging. I knew right away that Jellyfish was going to be my new home. I take great joy in managing teams and finding the best solution to any challenge, be it creative or in a team, and look forward to integrating these skills into the great talent at Jellyfish.
