Stefan Vogt was born in Trier - a small German city. He left as kid and never came back. Moved to „Schwabenland“ which is famous for its „Pietism“ a radical form of Protestantism (with the lifestyle-slogan: „work, work, building house“). This was too busy for Stefan and he felt the need for art-making. So he studied animation film under Professor Andreas Hykade and Paul Driessen in art school of Kassel. Then he visited three times several art schools in China for teaching. Stefan soon saw himself less as a teacher and more as a spy of an ancient culture. With this new/old knowledge he moved to Berlin. He wrote the concepts, draws and directed several award winning animation series.
