Uranium Film Festival 2016 Rio de Janeiro

At the invitation of the Heinrich Böll Foundation in Rio de Janeiro, we presented our animated documentary “Leonid’s Story” once again at the Uranium Film Festival in Rio. It was a happy reunion with the two initiators of the festival, Norbert Suchanek and Marcia Gomes de Oliveira. (Top left and bottom centre) And we met a group of more wonderful film makers.

Berlinale 2016

Here we are with Peter Roloff at the Nordmedia reception at the Berlinale. Later, we were also to make a small contribution in stop-motion technique to the film he produced about the Russian October Revolution, showing it from the perspectives of artists and writers, entitled “Der wahre October” [“The true October”].

Language recordings

A great moment: The dialogue for our animation series “Swinegel un Haas snackt platt” [“The hedgehog and the hare speak Low German”] is being recorded. This is the moment of truth whether our gags work. Yared Dibaba and Detlef Wutschik aka Werner Momsen are an experienced dream team for this kind of humour. And for Low German. Helga Peters from Buxtehude had been booked as a Low German speaker and made sure of the correct local colour in the pronunciation. All was perfect in the end.
