Fussel, the friendly monster, finds the beginning of a red string. This sparks his interest and he heads out to find out what's at the end. On his journey he meets different looking monsters, of which everyone has it's own theory about the end of the string. Curiously they join Fussel on his journey.

Anima Brussels Animation Film Festival 2020:
Alex Berweck (Director Fussel), Tim Lehr (TD Fussel) and I had the opportunity to present our project "Fussel" at the IP Space. Visitors of this years FMX could try a life demo of "Quill", the software we used to create our short film.
Wearing VR-Glasses, people could dive into the forest where Fussel and his friends are living. With the controllers visitors were able to draw additional plants or friends for Fussel.
Furthermore we were able to present our diploma project, as part of the "Education / Final Projects Animation & VFX Filmakademie" presentations
