Ronny Trocker - Frozen people at the beach

As beautifully refined as the short film Estate looks, its blend of real life images and computer generated people has its origin in director Ronny Trocker just playing around with a software he's never even touched before.

At Berlinale 2016 he admitted in our interview that he wasn't even sure if the technique he used in the film and the composition as a whole would work - until he saw the final edit. How amazing the result not only looks but also how strong it gets its message across can be marveled at in a few insert shots we've included in our Short Talks video below.
