A sheriff's shootout turns into an adventure through the wondrous world of film.

Cliffhanger is a short animation in the context of ULTRAKORT. Because I want to expand my experience to other genres and media, I organized this project. Cliffhanger is my very first animation.

Together with co-directors Diederick Geers and Jelle Janssen I wrote a filmplan and sent this together with producer Richard Valk to the Dutch Film Fund. De animatie is op het Netherlands Film Festival in première gaan en was nadien zien zijn als voorfilm voor Honest Thief in Vue bioscopen. Momenteel is Cliffhanger in distributie voor (inter)nationale filmfestivals.
