Vita Prof. Jürgen Schopper
FILM & ANIMATION





Prof. Jürgen Schopper (born 1968) studied painting, design and digital imagery.

He worked on numerous film and television productions as a computer animator and production designer before joining the Hollywood production "Independence Day" in 1995 as a computer and animation artist. A year later the film received an Oscar® for Best Visual Effects.

Later he returned to Germany and freelanced as a VFX Consultant.
He joined ARRI Film & TV, where he was involved in numerous film and television productions as a computer animator and production designer before he was promoted to Creative Director VFX in 2000. In his new capacity he was primarily responsible for feature film productions, but he also oversaw television movies and special events. He received several awards and distinctions for his work.

He is regularly invited to lecture at universities, is a sought-after guest for conventions and congresses and has published articles in magazines and trade publications.

In 2001, Jürgen Schopper joined the faculty of the GEORG-SIMON-OHM-HOCHSCHULE NÜRNBERG as head of the Department of "FILM & ANIMATION," a division of the School of Design.
