A stopmotion musicvideo for „Von Seiten der Gemeinde“ dealing with the much discussed topic of the return of the wolf in Austria’s forests and rural regions.

about 6000 pictures (24fps) // about 30 fully animate-able puppets // about 7 set-builds // a lot of props // 8 people involved and a lot more helping out // 1 month of planning // 2 1/2 months production // 1 month post-production

Aside from winning the category „best national music-video“ at Goldene Schindel Musik Video Festival Innsbruck and „best music short“ at Intuition Earth Film Festival it was also nominated in the category „best animation“ at the Berlin Music Video Awards
