Metanoia, an animated short film Metanoia is an animated short film about shifts of mind. Put into dreamy, metaphorical animations and sounds, it explores the effects, one's view on life may have. The narrator of METANOIA guides the viewer through magic forests, looking for the perfect colorful vision on life. A magic squirrel is expected to change her world view using her powers. However, seeing the world in black-and-white or through rose-colored glasses only brings more trouble... winner of the Austrian Indie Adler 2021
This Film is a commissioned work for STYRIARTE. While attending a concert, our mind carries us to the strangest places when we allow our imagination to run wild. This animated short is based on a concert, "Wassermusik", attended at STYRIARTE. During the concert, the music evoked a large variety of imaginary landscapes in my head, which I later sought to revive when animating the sequences.

Running fast into the sea as if there’s no one left alive, you see? in and out of every dive waves wash their way into the hand there’s nothing more to understand along the shores of silver sand
