After a very successful festival circuit, running on over 180 film festivals and winning more than 50 awards, weâ€™ve decided that itâ€™s finally time to share â€œThe Presentâ€ with the rest of the world.
â€œThe Presentâ€ is a thesis short from the Institute of Animation, Visual Effects and Digital Postproduction at the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg in Ludwigsburg, Germany. We really hope you enjoy the result of our hard work. Thanks to everyone who help creating this film and everyone who supported us during the festivals. Thanks a lot for making this such an incredible journey. â€œThe Presentâ€ is based on a great little comic strip by the very talented Fabio Coala.
