Derek Roczen – Filmakademie Baden-Wà¼rttemberg, Institute of Animation, Visual Effects and Digital Postproduction, Germany

This little tale tells the story of getting whatever you want, as long as you know what it is. Watch as a monster constantly cast in games, finds his perfect job in a game you’d never choose for him.
