THE OLD MAN AND THE BIRD at the Berlinale 2015 !

It was worth it: I spent several weeks in dark studio rooms last summer while animating a little stop-motion robin –  which will now go to the Berlinale! I am very happy that THE OLD MAN AND THE BIRD, an animated short by Dennis Stein-Schomburg was chosen to be shown at this years edition of the Berlin International Film Festival. So we are going to be in Berlin for the world premiere of the film on Tuesday, February 10th in the Cinemaxx…

This is what I can already show you, including a short clip from the process of animation (the scene didn’t make it into the final movie, but I think it’s worth to be shared anyway). Click here to see an extract of the film.
