New and old productions of the Trickfilmklasse Kassel.

AWARDS for »Orange« and »Schattengewächs«

Two films of the class were awarded at festivals. »Orange« by Marcus Feist won an »Honorary Award« at the FullDome Festival in Jena. »Schattengewächs« by Dennis Stein-Schomburg won the »Innovationspreis« of the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg at the Bundesfestival Video 2010 in Ludwigsburg.

In »Orange«, an orange-halves couple lives intimately united in love. But the dream of a life twosome burst when she suddenly lies dead next to him on the ground. He is beside himself with pain. Marcus Feist produced the film for the FullDome Festival, which shows films in 360° projections and from 04.–08.05. in Jena. The film »Frühstück« by Maurice Quentin and Dennis Stein-Schomburg continued this year.

»Schattengewächs« is an about three-minute long animation film, which works with analogously produced material and a digital camera journey. He shows the musical journey through a CV, whichs mirrored by his surroundings – a world of shadows.

We congratulate!

„Pierre und der Spinatdrache“

The film “Pierre und der Spinatdrache” by Helene Tragesser has received the title “Particularly Valuable” by the film evaluation office Wiesbaden (FBW). The film, conceived as a pilot film of a children’s series, is the final film of her studies in the animation film class.

The film rating agency evaluates filmes with “particulary valuable”, which are particulary outstanding in their genre. The predicate ist justified as follows:

“When the four-year-old Pierre gets a gigantic portion of the hated spinach on his plate with rice, he turns into a brave knight, who turns the nasty spinach into a duel for vegetables. Ant it comes to the surprising discovery that spinach is actually not so bad…

The first part of the animated children’s series PIERRE AND THE DRAGONS by director Helene Tragesser brings in a small conflict from the childlike world of experience with an original design, a loving setting and beautiful figures. A few minutes to the point – so heartfelt and apt that it also awakens the memory of adult audiences and maintains their entire audience in the best possible way.”


„Pierre und der Spinatdrache“ Will be on the “Sehsüchte” festival in Potsdam on 21 and 24 April 2010 as well as on the “Indielisboa” in Lisbon on 23/24/25/2/27/29. And April 30, 2010 and May 01, 2010
