Ruud Kouwenberg (Founder, VFX Supervisor)
Ruud developed his love for film at a very early age. Inseparable with his dad’s camera, he created little stories and rounded up all his buddy’s to shine in one of his creations.
The education Multimedia Design gave him the first tools to work in the new media business, but was focused mainly on web development. Because of his interest in animation and film he applied for Interactive Media and Visual Effects at the Dutch Film and Television Academy. A place where they combine animation, visual effects and storytelling. This gave him a solid understanding of all aspects needed for film making.
After graduation he worked on several international film, commercial and tv-show productions. Where his skills as a compositor grew to a high standard. Getting his hands on productions for Adidas, Mission Impossible 4 - Ghost Protocol, Nova Zembla and many more.
In 2012 Ruud and Stef came together and launched Studio WhooHoo! A place for fun & games and a lot of hard work.
"We always wanted to create our own stories and animations, with no boundaries or restrictions. This is why I love WhooHoo! It keeps me focused and always craving for more"
