A documentary-style short film about a lone hunter in a dystopic and abandoned world. As a result of countless environmental crises, most humans and animals have vanished from the planet. All that’s left are „Monjus“ – gigantic mutated whales – and the last man who hunts after them. He is the one who chose to stay back, while the rest of humanity has set out for a new home among the stars. And he has quite a story to tell…
The project is the bachelor and master’s thesis of Dirk Wachsmuth and Karim Eich, both students of Bauhaus-University Weimar. Hats off to their amazing animation skills!
I mixed this film on the Harrison MPC-4D at Film University Babelsberg’s dubbing stage.
