logline
A sheriff’s duel turns into an adventurous journey through film.
Cliffhanger is my first ever animated short film, co-directed with Jelle Janssen and Jasper Loos. It was an exciting and challenging experience for me, because everything I’ve learned about storytelling and animation is now being put into practice for the very first time.

Besides directing the short, I was responsible for writing the script, drawing the storyboards and serving as an art director through the whole process of the project.

For the production of the animation itself, we collaborated with Anikey animation, a renowned Dutch studio known for its feature animation films, short films and commissioned work.
Cliffhanger is part of the ‘Ultrakort’ program, a collaboration between the Dutch Film Fund and Vue cinemas, among others. Our short will play prior to a feature film in all Dutch Vue cinemas.
