Today we will introduce Jaromir Cisar, our animator, who gives life to all the art! Let’s hear his story!
What do you do in Mingle Games?
I handle animator post in Mingle Games. My main purpose is to bring all characters, creatures, background and foreground to life and to prepare them to be an entertaining segment of our games.
That is great, otherwise it would be very boring! Do you like working here and why?
Of course I like working here. I am fortunate to be in the team composed of equally excited people with passion for games.
Sounds like a dream team. Why did you choose to work in a gaming company?
Because I’ve played games since I can remember and now I have a chance to actually create them, be a part of the process. So the circle is complete now
Yes and your knowledge of games is always very useful. What were you doing before?
I was a freelancer since before I finished university. I had all kinds of jobs: TV and web ads, short animated series, signature tunes etc. but I also tried working outside creativity like a postman or a receptionist.
Interesting life experience! How does your typical day look like?
I wake up at 7:45am, have breakfast, take a tram to Mingle Games main base and from 9:00am to 5-6:00pm I create awesome animations, with a lunch break, of course. Then I go home, have dinner, take some exercise, work on my own animation projects or go out with my friends.
You indeed create awesome animations! Where do you find your motivation?
It is very simple – I love animation. I like to create something that entertains people around me. I like to involve my friends into my projects, for voice acting or „motion capture“ for my characters. I like to make up stories, situations, and interesting heroes. My inspiration comes from many games, movies and books that I have played, watched or read during my life.
Just what we need. What is your favorite game?
I like to play adventures or survival horror games most of all. Probably my most favorite adventure game is Little Big Adventure 2, survival horror Resident Evil and Silent Hill series. As for the newer games it is definitely Alien Isolation. Creators of this game managed to transform the immense atmosphere of Ridley Scott’s Alien movie (which is my favorite movie).
Most of us loves horrors here, so you fit in greatly. Can you tell us more about yourself? Where are you from, what are your activities outside work, etc.?
I am from Prague 3 – Žižkov, I’ve lived here almost my entire life. Outside work I constantly create my animated movies, think about new stories and characters, and go out with my friends to the cinema, pub or concerts. At night I put on my super hero costume and save Prague from evil forces
So you are the famous Animan? Anything else you want to add?
Well, I think I wrote all that is to know about me. My darkest secrets and, of course, the position of my super hero cave I will keep for myself
Thank you for great insight. We all now feel safer knowing there is a superhero fighting the crime! Next week we will introduce another member of our team.
