  • Pleasure to be selected BEST WORST CORONA GAG for my film Coroninja Episode 1! It was the best (not worst) experience ever with clear communication.

    This festival is based on comedy and it was my great pleasure to win "Best Worst Music Video 2021". The best thing about this festival is that you get in contact with real people and there was a full screening on Youtube. It is small, homey, and literally Bohemian in nature. It's the first festival that I felt was "real". They will give you an official certificate for awards or honorable mentions (as opposed to create your own!). I await my trophy, and they said it is on its way! I believe them (though it is a long way from Austria to Hawaii!).

    Truly an honor that my film, Offensive Cartoons 4: Kinder, was selected for the animation category. Really fun festival and I can only hope for more next time
