PROJECTS > Birdstrike

"In case of a mid-air collision between airplanes and birds, the birds are usually the ones to get the short end of the stick. But what if the airplane is smaller than the bird?"

The 3d animated short film (6:00) was produced at the 'Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg' during 'Filmgestaltung 2' tutored by Gil Alkabetz. The film was written, directed and animated by Johannes Schiehsl.

The film is also available for stereo 3d cinemas for both anaglyph or shutter/polarized projection. It received "Prädikat wertvoll" by the Filmbewertungsstelle Wiesbaden in 2008.
