Together with the Film- und Medienfestival gGmbH (organizer of Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film) and the AMCRS, MFG organizes the Pre Fixe with Animation Lounge as a prelude to the monthly network meeting of the film industry (Jour Fixe), at which speakers from the animation film scene report on current projects using practical examples and provide insights into their work.
On December 12, 2022 at 18:00 CET, Elena Walf will talk about “News from “Lena’s Farm”: Insights into the creation process of an animation series“.
The hand-drawn animation series “Lena’s Farm“, on which Elena Walf has been working with her team for three years, is being created at Studio Filmbilder in Stuttgart. Producer Thomas Meyer-Herrmann had the idea for the series; the source of inspiration was Elena Walf’s short film “Bat Time” (2015), which was made as part of the TV magazine “Ich kenne ein Tier”. Each episode is designed like a short film and manages entirely without dialogues. The focus is on the big and small inhabitants of Lena’s farm: from cow to dog and squirrel – everyone is there. Elena Walf reports on the making of the series with numerous examples and provides insights into the creative process.
The event will take place at Theater Rampe, Filderstraße 47, 70180 Stuttgart, and is free of charge.
The Jour Fixe offers a unique opportunity for exchange and networking with the MFG Unit Film Funding team. All participants are cordially invited to join the subsequent Jour Fixe starting at 19:00 CET.
Please note: There is no longer a requirement to show a negative Corona test in order to participate. Nevertheless, we recommend to do a quick test on your own before the event and to wear a mouth-nose-protection during the event.
