Frodo Kuipers graduated magna cum laude from KASK in Ghent (B) in 2001 with his award-winning animation film 'Antipods'. During his time as artist in residence at the NIAf, he made 2 short animation films, including the film 'Shipwrecked', which received international acclaim. Since 2005, Frodo has been mainly engaged in the realization of independent films in his Studio Mosquito, of which 'Fata Morgana' (2011) and 'Bullet Time' (2016) are the most successful. The latter film was chosen at the end of 2017 as the Dutch entry for the Oscars 2018. In addition to his free films, Frodo regularly makes commissioned work, teaches at the WDKA in Rotterdam and regularly works as a voice actor.
