Planemah, a well illustrated and frame by frame animated short film by Jakob Schmidt.

The Berlin, Germany based animator and filmmaker Jakob Schmidt has produced ‘Planemah’, a trippy short film about a crazy king who chases the secrets of universe and existence. In its very own way, the film is an allegory about desire, ruthlessness and the complete loss of control. After first character designs and perspective studies on paper, Planemah has been illustrated and animated frame by frame using a Wacom Cintiq 22HD. This traditional animation technique is known as very powerful but yet extremely work-intensive. It often needs hundreds of illustrations for only one minute of motion footage.

The film has been screened around the globe at international festivals such as Anima Mundi in Brazil and the CutOut Fest in Mexico where it made the jury Award for short animation. Do not hesitate and watch this outstanding animation below. You can find further information on the official film blog: planemah.blogspot.de

The film was featured additionally in our WE AND THE COLOR Vimeo group and channel.
