Lukas Niklaus

Co-founder and director, Floating Rock Studio

As an animation supervisor at Floating Rock, Lukas and his team draw on their extensive film industry experience to help bring to life scenes imagined by the gamemaker.
Known for his ability and passion in bringing true and genuine performances to life, Lukas has worked at almost all major Visual Effects studios including Weta Digital, Industrial
Light & Magic, Framestore, MPC and Animal Logic. He lists films like Paddington, War for the Planet of the Apes and Peter Rabbit 2 as the most enjoyable experiences of his
career despite having worked on more “prestigious” VFX projects like Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.
