"Requiem" is an animated short film about the journey of a soul in search for its last resting place through a mysterious cave.

We produced this film in a group of five people over the course of 4 months at the Stuttgart Media University in our 6th semester. Our main focus was to tell about death and last moments in a poetic and aesthetically pleasing way. Thus creating  a calm - almost mythical - atmosphere.
