lasse munk – Creative Technologist.
When it comes to art and technology, lasse has been around the block. He started the progressive ensemble KLO (Kopenhagen Laptop Orchestra) and has through theater, circus, exhibitions and events, explored how sound, code and design can create novel experiences. As of 2022 he decided to dive head first in to immersive storytelling and is now leading Makropol’s technical department.

Bosslady with a masters degree in enchantment. Aja gently whips the studio in shape and entices us to think deeper and harder about our work. In her free time she devours contemporary art and immerses herself in ASMR.

david adler – XR director
Graduated from the Royal Danish Filmschool, as an animation director, David always felt there was something missing in his storytelling toolbox. Then he entered the world of extended reality. Here he soon realized that he could let his audience live inside his stories and that the potential for emotional impact was wast and unexplored. He has not looked back since.

mads michelsen – Immersive sound designer
With a background as a composer and musician, Mads approaches everything he does with a great sense of precision and attention to detail and quality. He is a perfectionist and aesthetic to the bone and has a deep passion for 3D sound and sound in general. And he plays the drums!
peter hjorth– VFX
As the eccentric professor of visual effects and creative use of technology, Peter refuses to think small and challenges every concept and idea at Makropol to find the exact point of progression. With his 30 years of experience as visual effects supervisor on major feature films like Melancholia and Antichrist we dare not oppose, instead we listen and learn – and get things DONE.
Because DONE is the engine of more.
balder brüsch – Creative Technologist.
Ever since Balder ran away from circus he has been looking for a new one. At Makropol he found the digital kind. As the technical ringmaster, he now has to juggle every idea that is thrown his way, all the while he has to balance on the ridge between his need for thoroughness and the idea’s potential for disaster.
mikkel skov – Producer
Mikkel, an experienced digital producer and business innovation strategist, was lured in to circus Makropol through the TRAVERSE workshop and subsequently decided to pursue the idea of being a full time XR producer. Now, as a major player in the studio – he still doesn’t know exactly what this means. But who does?
