We are looking back upon a full week dedicated to the animated films at this year’s Festival of Animated Film in Stuttgart (ITFS). Besides the festival premiere of ‘Trude’s Tier’ (‘Trude’s Flatmate’) and several screenings of ‘Trolltag’ (‘The Troll Trap’), ‘The Amazing World of Gumball’  has been awarded with a Screenplay Trickstar for Best Children’s Animated Series. Klaus Morschheuser and Mathias Schreck attend the ceremony on behalf of Cartoon Network Europe. The Jury’s explanation: ‘We chose this film because of its highly original visual style, its whacky, energetic comedic timing and its heart-warming story that appeals to both kids and adults. Well done!’

Congratulations to the whole team!

It’s a SOI weekend on TV and in Stuttgart

Trude lives together with a big obscure beast, which has the power of an elephant, the brashness of a child, but not a clue what’s good manners… ‘Trudes Tier’ (Trude’s Flatmate), directed by Klaus Morschheuser, Johannes Weiland and Michael Bohnenstingl and designed by Sandra Brandstätter and Sebastian Koch, is our latest tv-series project for the children’s tv show ‘Die Sendung mit der Maus’.
