Hellooo to all of you who took part in our animation festival! we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all again for helping us create such a nice event!!!

We are currently putting together out preliminary plan and we predict that the next event will take place in summer, either june or july. The next will take place in a larger venue, with a more varied line up and much more to see!

hallooooo liebe Leute, die an unserem Animationsfestival teilgenommen haben. an dieser Stelle möchten wir gerne Allen von Euch noch mal danken, da wir ein echt super schönes Event haben konnten.

Eigentlich hatten wir den Plan, DVDs zu machen und während und nach dem Event zu verkaufen. Aber wegen technischen Schwierigkeiten und Zeitmangel haben wir es leider nicht geschafft, und am Ende haben wir uns entschieden, dass wir dieses Mal doch nichts publizieren werden…
Trotzdem machen wir eben einen Plan für das nächste Animationsfestival!!! Wir haben schon viele vorausgehende Ideen, die auch schon ziemlich konkret sind,
- es wird im Sommer, entweder Juni oder Juli stattfinden,
- der Ort wird größer sein
- mit vielgestaltigerem Line-Up, viel mehr zu sehen, etc.

Wenn Ihr Euch am nächsten Even interessiert, bitte schick uns eine Email (, um weitere Details informiert zu werden.

Vielen vielen Dank noch mal an Alle, und wünschen Euch schöne Festtage!!

the self-figuration idea is not new, from early animation Out of InkWell featuring charater KoKo the Clown made by Fleischer brothers in 1921 to an Oscar winner film Manipulation (same name) made by Daniel Greaves in 1991.
