Created in 2000, der "Unterseefraülein" was the first film I created completely independent of any studio. It was animated on paper, with each drawing scanned and coloured in Photoshop. Each finished 'cel' was then assembled frame-by-frame in Adobe Premiere. A laborious process but one that allowed me to do all the work in my home studio, and laid the groundwork for all of my later films.
