Additional information:

As we have received a number of very interesting (but also highly international) applications, I would like to emphasize that our studio is located in Erlangen, Germany.

Ideally, collaborators would be able to travel to the studio in person (when such travel is possible). Limited travel reimbursements are negotiable.

We do encourage interested international applicants to contact us, however, as we are planning future series in which digital collaborations would be particularly fruitful.

We plan to respond to applications as they arrive. Thank you so much for your interest!
