Description:


    “Herbstlaub” is a coming-of-age road movie about a dot. The goal was to tell a story while staying as visually abstract as possible. Due to the schedule and the work process, most decisions were made with limited thinking time, which surely contributed to the emotional believability of the piece.

    PRODUCTION: First, a short timeframe was established for all the story elements. Then layout music was prepared. The animation process lasted two weeks. Including initial testing and finalizing, the whole piece was created within three weeks. The music was sung (except for the composer himself) only by animation students.
