The Animated Short "The Orkbabies" which I created with 5 other students at the German Film School made the first place at the 8th Sichuan TV Festival in the category "Best Animated Short Film (3D)" and was awarded with the "International Golden Panda".
"The Orkbabies" is a "Lord of the Rings" parody. The basic idea was to create a pilot for a 3d series. The production time was about 5 months. We were six people working on this short. When the short was finished and we watched it for the first time, we were a little disappointed cause we wanted to create a funny entertaining short but it wasn't funny anymore ^^;
Anyways I'm still proud that I could work with very talented people and that we managed to keep the deadline. And I think it's still a good short from the visual point of view. It's just the story that didn't work out as we expected.
So I was really surprised when I got the news about the award.
Many thanks to the jury!
