Diederick Geers, Jelle Janssen, Jasper Loos Short film - 2020 - 2 min.
All ages

Within minutes, we go from the Wild West via a vampire castle and a jungle with dinos to another planet: an adventure across the wondrous world of cinema.

This animation starts off with a classic scene from westerns: a bank robber standing opposite a sheriff, both ready to pull their guns. The bandit is faster and hits the sheriff’s hat, who loses his balance and falls into a well. This takes him to a creepy castle with a vampire. In an engaging whirlwind, we subsequently pass by various film genres, in this affectionate tribute to suspenseful and thrilling films.Realised as part of the eleventh edition of Ultrakort, which releases short animation films in a large number of cinemas and movie theatres.
