Ernst in Autumn
short film / 6 minutes
commissioned by zdf / 2006
Ernst passionately loves summer. He cannot have enough of it. While the narrator tries to make him understand that autumn also has its upside, Ernst stubbornly is taking a bath in the ocean. But having a swim on a shabby autumn day will lead to a serious cold. Oh dear!
Will Ernst finally accept that time moves on, now, that he is stuck in bed and could rather fly a kite?
This short film, produced in 2006, was the first time we used a combination of 3D animation and hand drawn backgrounds.
