    „A single death is a tragedy. A million deaths is a statistic.“
    (Joseph Stalin)

    Hi everybody, the title ”Ballad of a Soldier“ couldn't be more fitting, as this is an universal ode to the heroic deeds of one single man in more than difficult times yet far away from any politics and like in a typical ballad he runs into many different obstacles and has obscure encounters which…

    Hi everybody, another very short sensation by the master of paint-on-glass animation. You truly can't expect more in just three minutes: beautiful pictures, movement and colors.

    "When I first was writing the script I thought it was about loneliness. What I learned while writing the script is this was about a man who suffered from the pathology of loneliness, he wasn't only by nature he was lonely as a defense mechanism and he reinforced his own loneliness by his own behavior and the pathology grew until it became malignant and violent."
