My name is Matthias Strasser. I’m from Zürich, Switzerland. Animated films have always fascinated me and led me into their world to create them. I started almost ten years ago creating little animations for youtube channels. For my senior project I made my first animated short. And for my most recent project Firefly I wanted to try character animation. I’m looking forward to start animation studies in september.
Driven by curiosity, a lovely little girl explores the wonders in the hidden depths of the jungle. From dancing fireflies, to brightly colored flowers, to exotic trees, you can find everything. What the girl certainly didn't expect is the encounter with a frightened young orangutan, who is desperately searching for his parents. Despite the communication difficulties of the two, she miraculously recognizes the devastating fate of the orange survivor.
