The Tale Of Mr. Rêvus from ScriblabStudios on Vimeo.

The animated shortfilm “The Tale Of Mr. Rêvus” is my (Marius Herzog) graduation (Diploma) film, produced at the Georg-Simon-Ohm Hochschule – University Of Applied Sciences, Nuremberg.

The challenge of this movie was to reproduce the entire production process of an animated 3D shortfilm by myself including story development, concept design, modelling, rigging, directing, editing, animating, rendering and finally compositing (see credits).

The amazing score orchestrated by Simon Scharf student at the Hochschule für Musik Nuremberg (HfM) has been conducted by Guido Johannes Rumstadt, played by the orchestra of the HfM and recorded by Toni Hinterholzinger.

Special thanks to all the kind people who supported me in a very tough time especially my beloved family, Prof. Jürgen Schopper and Tobias Wiesner. This movie wouldn´t exist without you…

Besides the actual technical and creative production the story turned into a very personal metaphor.

Thanks for watching!
