No Room for Gerold

C O N C E P T

Authenticity has become a buzzword in high-quality conventional live-action films. Now animated films are joining in, and taking their pursuit of "artificial reality" to the extreme. Shaky camera work, natural lighting, and realistic acting are the name of the game. In recent years, many have tried to shoot live-action fiction in documentary, fly-on-the-wall style. Animated films, which need careful, frame-by-frame crafting, are even further removed from documentaries - which makes them an ideal stage for playing with "artificial reality".

 

The film is based on a normal, everyday scenario. As if by chance, the camera finds itself in an apartment shared by a group of animals. What follows is a scene repeated hundreds of times a day between rhinos, crocodiles, wildebeests and hippos, in kitchens across Germany.
