This year a lot of film festivals had to be canceled. That also seemed to apply to Germany’s biggest children’s film festival The Golden Sparrow. A cancellation would have been especially sad for us since three of our films got selected. But thanks to their festival team the bird will finally twitter in the golden summer of Erfurt and Gera 2020 from September 20th to 26th! If you want to watch “Swipe, Swipe”, “Trude’s Flatmate” and “Rasmus Klump” on the big screen find out more on the Golden Sparrow’s website.
In our latest short film “Swipe Swipe” children are having a blast. While their parents are checking their mobiles, the children are organizing a party in the treehouse. Shadi Adib designed the short, Johannes Weiland directed and animated the film. It premieres this Sunday on German TV as part of the show “Sendung mit der Maus”.
Social media can be fascinating! How children use their parent’s fascination to their own advantage shows a music clip we’ve recently produced for German broadcaster WDR. The film was designed by Shadi Adib, animated and directed by Johannes Weiland.
The clip just got nominated for this year’s Tricks for Kids award at the Trickfilmfestival in Stuttgart. But we don’t know yet when it will be broadcast on WDR. So please, do keep on checking your smartphone!
