‚The Bookworms‘ is a site specific augmented reality story, that allows children to explore the Austrian National Library in an entirely new way.
The bookworms Anna, Bruno and Wolf go on a quest to find the truth – to distinguish fact from fiction – in the magnificent Baroque library, thereby introducing children to the space and some of the fascinating, ancient books within it.
The experience is available to children aged 7 – 12 as part of guided family tours.

People do all sorts of things when they are love-sick. They drink heavily, they stay in bed for days, the go on a promiscuous bender or they eat chocolate and go fat… I made a film, and this is the trailer to it.
Screwed Up is currently screening at Emergeandsee Arts Festival Berlin, Bochum Video Festival and together with my other film 'Breakfast' at Athens Video Festival.
