Who we are

Ben&Julia is a Berlin based Creative Studio founded in Paris in 2007. The duo Julia Gaudard & Benoit Créac'h relocated to Berlin in 2010 where they work as multidisciplinary artists, video and art directors. 

They create exceptional mixed media work through 2D and 3D animation, puppetry and live action. To date their work has been enthusiastically commissioned and activated on a wide spectrum of platforms, from working with NIKE, Volvo, Swatch and MTV to live painting at Art Basel and exhibiting at Pictoplasma. 

The physical studio is designed to allow inspiration to materialise. It is a place to draw, paint, sculpt, make molds, cast, shoot, edit, animate, grade, record a voice-over or play the banjo. 🍕

What we do

As Directors, we have always put writing at the heart of our creative process from poetic surrealism to zany comedies in adverts, music videos to fine-artwebseries

We are lucky to have constant access to our shooting studio w/sound, photo & video equipment so that we can start producing audio & visuals tomorrow if needed.

Art Direction | Design

The studio is focusing on delivering ground-breaking visuals, illustrations and graphics for web, print & videos since 2007.

Ben & Julia first designed, directed and animated an extensive series of music videos before collaborating with number one brands around the world and developing new routes through mixed realities. 

Imagery is approached both in 2D - 3D,live & digital worlds. 

Model-Set Design | Sculptures | Molding & Casting

For films & fine art, from toy size to 3,30 meter long figures, Ben&Julia Studio creates bigger than life Sofubi and Sentaï costumes for artistic projects / collab.

Vacuum / air free molds, clear-cast resin, silicone mask and prosthetic.

The films for Diesel, Outback, Yo Gabba Gabba and art performance Volvo Art Session, also feature a wild range of sculpted work.

Animation | VFX | Stop Motion

While mixing all sorts of media, we developed a special expertise in compositing, keying, tracking & designing radical motion graphics that ultimately nourishes our work as directors.
