Justice - An animated Short Noir

About the film:

Justice is an animated short noir that deals with the problematic topic of corruption within judicial systems.
The log-line be described as: A detective seeks justice in an unjust world.
The movie is our fifth semester animation project that consumed pretty much all of our time during the last four months.
During this period of time the movie was created completely from scratch.

Who we are:

We are a team of four students located at Dieburg, a small city near Frankfurt in Germany.
But we do not only study and work together, we are also flatmates and became good friends over the course of several semesters.

The last two aspects made it possible for us to create our movie within a very short timeframe,
as we had a very well working communication and by this collaboration.

If we would not have supported one another greatly during the projects course, the result we ended up with would not have been as nice as it is.

What we are going to do:

The plans after graduation are quite varying from one another. One wants to look into the gaming industry, others are thinking of continuing their studies within a masters degree class.
