Under the headline "IP Development and Production in a Team", third year Animation and Interactive Media students of the Animationsinstitut at Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg produce a short film and a game experience each based on a stylistically individual world. The technically innovative clips are produced within four months: in joint workshops, students develop their initial ideas, and work in interdisciplinary teams. Projects are then supervised by teaching staff conceptually, technically, and during implementation.
Application deadline for courses starting in fall is February 15 each year. International students are welcome! For more information please go to animationsinstitut.de

Yelyzaveta Davydenko (Producing), Rike Ziegler (Producing), David Sick (Directing), Luisa Müller (Directing), Hannes Sturm (Technical Directing), Jan Klingner (Animation), Elias Weber (Animation), Tanja Nuijten (Animation), Cristina Narata (Animation), Nicolas Sperling (Animation), Eileen Kammer (Animation), Peter Albrecht (Musik), Richard Weigert (Ton)
In a miniature world, the fate of a tribe’s dying village is in the hand of the Explorer. He is given the Blob, the last seed of their mother tree, which is the central element of their civilization. The Explorer is sent out to find a suitable spot to plant the Blob and to create a new home for his tribe. On their journey, he has to overcome his high expectations and eventually trust the Blob’s instinct.
