NIKOLAUS HILDEBRAND studied architecture at the Cologne University of Applied Sciences. From 1990 to 1996, he was worked on the animated film aspects and scenography for various feature film projects.
After completing their studies, Uhlig and Hillebrand founded an animated film production company known as niky-bilder. Their work ranges from animated film and children's film to time-lapse film and art film. Their specialisation in cartoons led them in 1996 to regular commissions for the Sendung mit der Maus. Since 2004, they have also offered animate film workshops. In addition to these children's films, they also work on other freelance projects. In 2007, for instance, their short film Grün (Green) received its premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival.
