At the edge of society, a cow tips the balance of destiny with quite some impact…
Born in 1980, Verena Fels graduated in audiovisual media from the University of Applied Science Hochschule der Medien in Stuttgart in 2004.
After several internships in media design agencies in Munich, Verena studied animation and filmmaking at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. "Mobile" is her graduation film.
I have always been fascinated by the forces of natural science such as gravity and balance. They deal especially with momentum, energy and dynamic. These aspects are also one of the cornerstones of animation: they create rhythm and life.
I wanted to create a film dealing with these forces, but on the other hand I also wanted to create believable characters with real feelings and needs. So I used these forces as the core of the film to tell an exciting, loving and humorous story about the fate of a cow playing with these fragile systems, which seem to us actually as stable. A story connecting heart and mind.
