The film shoot


At the same time as the short film festival VIS Vienna Independent Shorts at the end of May, the three winning teams started filming for the short film competition "The Rhythm of Vienna". We visited the film teams on set: Animated film maker Susan Young and director Paul Wenninger are working on their film with dancer Raúl Maia. We paid a visit to Franziska Pflaum and her team on location in the Franciscan Church. We accompanied Wolfgang Matzl and his paper figure for a short distance along Vienna's Ringstrasse.
