Detox Animation – I am the founder and creator. My name is Maarten Heinstra.
I am an experienced freelancer for over 20 years with a personal extensive international network within the animation world. And ready to take on the world (if needed ....)

Starting in London in 1996, I graduated in 1999 from L.A.S. (London Animation School, part of Central Saint Martins). Producing for well respected animation companies like: The Mill, Passion Pictures, StudioAKA, Glassworks, Seed Animation and many more. My main specific niches were (lead) character rigger, being a creative director and 3D animator.

Now living in The Netherlands, my main focus is producing for animation & the creative industry. E.g. producing AAA games, animated commercials and 3D movies.

Some recent projects i worked on 'The Litlle Vampire' (the first 3D feature movie made in Holland), WKZ Maatje (AR app, and winner of a silver Spinaward), Cash Quiz (Educational series of 3D animated shorts).

I am open to discuss new opportunities within the 3D industry and would like to assist you on taking on projects from character design/concepts to concept, 'final' film, AR or VR products.

Please contact me for more information, support and advise.
