Ernst is a figure on a postcard, which is in a card stand with many other motives. While the other cards are eagerly bought, no one is interested in his card and Ernst becomes increasingly discontented. Finally, he almost gets bought – but then he is put back crooked again. This brings his world into imbalance and he falls out. For him a colorful journey full of different styles of representation begins – whether 2D, 3D, live action and stop-motion.
Stella Raith was born in Münster in 1995 and is living in the Stuttgart area. Since her early childhood she loves to combine dance and illustration and found her realization in the form of animation. From October 2014 until 2020 she studied animation at the Film Academy Baden-Württemberg. As director and lead animator she realized her final project Avant Card in 2020 – an animation short film full of ideas and artistic expression. Besides her studies, Stella works as a freelance filmmaker, character artist and animator for companies such as Pixelcloud, King Racoon Games and the state of Baden-Württemberg.
