You can pet Waba, stretch Waba, feed Waba, put Waba to sleep, and play fetch together!

Waba was created by Edwon and a team of amazing collaborators, friends, and freelancers. Edwon is a former Imagineer who now creates cuteness technology, virtual characters, animation, and videos!

Nattens Ende

“The End of the Night”

Join a danish jew in his escape over Øresund in a small rowboat during the Second World War.

 

David Adler is a film director working in animation and new media. He graduated from the Danish Film School in 2014 with the animated film “No Man’s Land”, who went on to win the ANIS Talent Award at OFF in 2015.

David has a background as a painter and a visual artist, this shows in the art style of his films, who are often quite experimental and challenging to the audience. A theme through most of his films is the beauty in ugliness and the characters’ inner life sculpted onto their faces. He works towards getting a more distorted and earthy feel into the otherwise very clean and digital 3D animation and try to incorporate abstraction and the macabre.
