This year‘s FMX trailer Behind the Beard is all about everyday problems, the ones that might seem insignificant and dull at first, but end up turning our world upside down. This very relatable topic is discussed through the story of Bruno, a little beaver living in a forest, and Ben, a bearded hipster.
Following the “learning by doing” credo of Animationsinstitut, the team of Behind the Beard developed an IP (Intellectual Property). The students created one story world that they turned into two different experiences – a trailer series consisting of seven episodes and the associated game app Beaver your Beard.
