An animated whirlwind cinematic tour through Vienna, staged with cups, saucers, plates, knives, forks, local specialties and products interspersed with different dimensions of Vienna’s contemporary urban life. Using stop-motion animation, Virgil Widrich’s team made 55,000 photos over five days to produce 2.7 terabytes of data. „We would have had enough material in the end to produce a 38-minute film taking a playing speed of 24 images per second,“ he says. It took weeks of work to compress the message into the film’s present length. You do not need to leave a Viennese coffee table to travel through the whole city! Commissioned by Vienna’s Staff Office International Strategy and Coordination. Winner of 22 international awards or honorable mentions!
