After a very successful festival circuit, running on over 180 film festivals and winning more than 50 awards, we’ve decided that it’s finally time to share “The Present” with the rest of the world.

“The Present” is a thesis short from the Institute of Animation, Visual Effects and Digital Postproduction at the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg in Ludwigsburg, Germany.
We really hope you enjoy the result of our hard work. Thanks to everyone who helped creating this film and everyone who supported us during the festivals. Thanks a lot for making this such an incredible journey.

“The Present” is based on a great little comic strip by the very talented Fábio Coala Cavalcanti
