What is your name and your current occupation?
Teodor Ajduk, animator
What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation?
Animation is crazy enough. Nothing can be compared with her.
Naturally, Disney, Don Bluth, Looney tunes,Tom and Jerry, Tex Avery and Zlatko Grgic are guilty for my interest in animation…who else?
Where are you from and how did you get into the animation business?
What’s a typical day like for you with regards to your job?
Wake up, introduce with obligations, do them .
I worked mainly on short projects, with a small crew, on tv commercials or openings for various tv shows, covered a wide part of the obligations – each part is interesting…until the deadline comes. but, I like most 2D straight-ahead animation.
Most of all: conversations with customers and clients.I’m too grumpy. In my place purchasers and their agencies are in connection with local tycoons or fraudsters. Its hard to be nice to them. …and I hate ‘tweenings’ in 2D animations
Pen, digital and analog

Perica Cirovic was a long-time collaborator. His job was conversations with customers and clients because i hate that part of business.
