Sehsüchte | 50th Edition

This is the trailer for the 50th edition of the largest student film festival in Europe, „Sehsüchte“. Going along with the festival’s theme „Ignite“, the short film follows a person on a journey from being a passive observer to becoming an active, moving individual. The movements were filmed with a professional dancer performing the sequence, and then translated into animation using the rotoscoping technique.
