Congratulations on winning the Meduc Award, a media award and competition for young creatives. What was your first thought when you learned that your film had been given a "Special Mention"?
Lea and I spoke directly on the phone to share the brief moment of euphoria together. The next thought was: how can we continue? Are there other interesting competitions? - A short rush full of happy hormones.
How did the award come about? Did you apply for the competition yourself? If so, what made you decide to submit your short film to the Meduc Award?
In the evaluation form and the feedback email it was written in great detail what the jury liked and we were advised to submit the film to other film festivals and competitions. We think you liked the cinematic realization of the topic very much.
We wanted to get out of our HMKW bubble and our everyday university life and see how our film would be received by a jury of experts and whether we could keep up. In addition, the topic dealt with in the film should be freely accessible to the public and provide food for thought.
