A sheriff's shootout turns into an adventure through the wondrous world of film.
Cliffhanger is a short animation made for ULTRAKORT. Because I'm always looking for ways to expand my experience, I set up this project. Together with my co-directors Diederick Geers and Jelle Janssen I wrote a film plan and submitted it, together with producer Richard Valk, to the Dutch Film Fund.
The animation premiered at Netherlands Film Festival and was afterwards shown as a pre-film to Honest Thief at Vue cinemas. Currently, Cliffhanger is in distribution for (inter)national film festivals.
