The Phenomenon „hysterical strength“ is a display of extreme strength by humans, beyond what is believed to be normal, usually occurring when people are in life and death situations. We witness a mother giving birth to her child. Rather than seeing things on a realistic level, we follow things happening on a more metaphorical side.The focus of the action is the challenge of birth, which presents itself as an extreme situation in which it becomes literally a matter of life and death.
BreakingPoint is my Diploma Project and a graduation short from the Institute of Animation, Visual Effects and Digital Postproduction at the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg in Ludwigsburg, Germany.
From the Idea to the final film it took about 1,5 years including half a year of preproduction with an extensive work in Animatics and Previz and about 8 months of postproduction.
A big THANK YOU goes to the great team and Filmakademie.
