Thing.nl is a small high end animation studio for Houdini related animations geared towards clients in a wide variety of fields like musea, film and advertising and has extensive experience with projects in the cultural heritage domain.
Founder and owner Rudi Nieuwenhuis: “I started Thing.nl over 20 years ago and made the switch to Houdini, our main 3D package, shortly after. I instantly got hooked. Things that were previously simply just not possible now became achievable and outright fun to create.
As a beta tester I keep close contact with the companies that develop the software we use and I stay in touch with the latest developments in VFX in the film-business.
Besides Thing.nl I also teach Houdini at the Dutch Filmacademie.
I love to work on challenging projects that are daunting to others or are believed to be impossible. That’s when the fun begins.”
