With the topic of our 5th semester "Games & Animations for change" in mind we created a short about a probably dangerous substance in our daily life: Aluminum! In about 3 months this project evolved from scratch to the final animation.

This advertisement-style short tries to raise awareness to unknown use of aluminium in everyday products like cosmetics, baby food and the possible health danger resulting from an increased aluminium level in the human body.

We are both currently 6th semester students at Hochschule Darmstadt studying Digital Media - Animation & Game aiming for a carreer in VFX and animation.

Thanks to our awesome sound guys Niklas & Rahm for their incredible work!
