PEPITA & MAX, 6min, Family/Animation 
Directed by Rahel Ilona Eisenring

Pepita and Max have all sorts of adventures. Monsieur Raf, Max’ toy giraffe, is always with them. When Max loses Monsieur Raf while hiking, the little boy can’t find sleep. Not even the Alpsegen, the lullaby of the mountains, which is meant to protect animals and people on the alp, helps. The peculiar tradition gives Pepita an idea: what works for Swiss alp-cows could also save a giraffe through the night.

SHORT FILM

FRUIT, 7min., Germany, Animation/Experimental
Directed by Gerhard Funk

Rise into being, mature, perish – Fruit tells a creation story. As the animated short film unfolds, it brings forth a play of shapes illustrating the dialog between two mythological forces – the West and the East. In it the vibrating entities of black and white are constantly being split apart and reconciled by red, in a playful and dramatic choreography of forms and figures.

Directed by Andy & Carolyn London

In 1986, Andy London had a small, forgettable role in the Glen Cove High School production of Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town”. But what happened when the curtains closed….is the stuff of legend.

Winning ANIMATION Short Screenplay – BATROOM by Crafty St James

Genre: Animation, Comedy

Two Bats have an awkward exchange at the urinal, while waiting for the greatest baseball game of all time to start.

CAST LIST:

Narrator: Elizabeth Rose Morriss
Little Bat: Jack Comerford
Big Bat: Jordy Kieto
Announcer: Brian Carleton

Get to know the writer:

What is your screenplay about?

BATROOM is about a young bat whose adrenaline pumps from the anticipation for the upcoming huge baseball game and is too anxious to be able to urinate in a public restroom.

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Animation.

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

It’s clever, funny and even if for two minutes, if it can pull people away from their everyday routines, it is worth it.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Cute and clever.

What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

The Bellboy by Jerry Lewis

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

It was written in 2008 and just sat on my hard drive until 2017.

How many stories have you written?

Several hundred.

What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

Follow the Leader by Rakim

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Figuring out the details for the restroom was challenging.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Acting, producing and filmmaking. I love to imagine stories, scenarios, and fantastic events to make real. The whole process from thought to manifestation in exhilarating.

What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

After rediscovering my script I went searching for a festival that accepted short animated screenplays and after finding FEEDBACK Animation Film and Screenplay Festival, I knew that this was the one for BATROOM.

I am the type of person that appreciates feedback and thought the feedback was on point, concise, progressive and offered very thoughtful creative suggestions.
