The friendly little monster Manfred is in the woods looking for the ingredients for his pumpkin bread, in this unique VR film for the little ones.

Inspired by picture books, Sesame Street and the puppet theatre, animator Gatze Zonneveld conceived a short virtual reality film for children of three years and older. Bearing a smartphone or tablet, you enter an autumnal fairy-tale forest, where the little monster Manfred wants to bake a pumpkin bread. All he needs to start are the ingredients. During his search, he meets other forest creatures, but the question is whether they will lend him a helping paw.
