This short animation for the german play "Peterchens Mondfahrt" (Little Peter's Voyage to the Moon) by Gerdt von Bassewitz tells the tale of the main character's ancestor, cockchafer Sumsemann. I tried to capture the atmosphere and worn-out style of the early works of animation pioneer Lotte Reiniger and adopted her somewhat limited possibilities, because the staging production of the play is set in a kind of Jules Verne / steampunk world. Enjoy!
