The shorts were created by students of the Institute of Animation, Effects and Digital Postproduction at Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg in Ludwigsburg, Germany and chosen to promote the 2013 Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film, (ITFS) the biggest and one of the most important festivals for animated film worldwide, and by Film and Media Exchange’s (FMX) 2013.
The 2013 trailer Rollin’ Safari was directed by Kyra Buschor, Annie Habermehl and Constantin Paeplow and produced by Valentina Bruening and Philipp Wolf: “Our initial idea was to tell a high speed chase – but different to known scenarios. Imagine the story of a hunter pursuing a fat rollin’ deer in the forest – hilarious! As we loved the idea of rollin’ animals that much we decided the hunter should also be an animal – even more hilarious – and everything should take place in the savannah, since in this region we were given a bigger choice of typical wildlife hunting scenes.”
