Making-of “Shine” – When Two Monkeys See the Light

Making-of | Introduction | Intermediate | Expert
animago AWARD & CONFERENCE 2017

The most creative ideas are often a result of coincidence – which was also the case with the animated short “Shine”, which was born during the team’s visit in a bier garden.

They noticed that not all lights in the chain of lights above them were working and they started thinking of creative reasons as to why this was. At the end of the day, the team’s imaginations had found the reason: small monkey-like creatures run along the chain of lights from light to light and tap their energy so they can glow and impress their female counterparts. An original idea for their thesis work was born! During their session, the two artists will show, how the process for the Filmakademie project looked like.
