The Beauty, a diploma film produced at Animationsinstitut of the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, is among the nominees of the Student Academy Awards 2020. The animated short film The Beauty (Director: Pascal Schelbli, VFX Supervisor: Marc Angele, Animation: Noel Winzen, Producers: Tina Vest, Aleksandra Todorovic) received a nomination in the category "Animation (International Film Schools)" along with two other finalists. The Student Academy Awards ceremony will take place on October 15, 2020.
The Beauty deals with the plastic pollution of the world's oceans and thus hits the spirit of the times. The film takes the audience on a poetic journey through a fascinating underwater world, where plastic and nature become one. For one breath, worries and feelings of guilt seem to dissolve between eerily beautiful coral reefs and the mysterious depths of the ocean.
