In August 2012 we started collaborating with the IASS (=Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies) in Potsdam to create a film that generates awareness for one of the topics the institute deals with: Soil.
What might sound boring at first glance is actually really exciting. The film has hero worms, scarecrows, pigs and cows, harvesters, sandstorms, evil supermarket pumps, a (not really) lowpoly Berlin, a second earth and many more stuff from the world of soil. After 3,5 months of work, the film premiered in Berlin at the Global Soil Week, a conference, where »stakeholders from science, government, business and civil society will come together to share their land and soil-related experience and expertise, and to develop future plans of action for sustainable land/soil management and governance.«
