Herr Hoppe und der Atommüll (Herr Hoppe and the Nuclear Waste)
Animated short film
Jan LACHAUER / Thorsten LÖFFLER
A barrel of nuclear waste suddenly drops into the living room of the protagonist an ordinary suburban German. His efforts to get rid of the barrel creates the humor of this entertaining animated short series. Backgrounds and characters make the use of the claymation style and were created with the skill of 3D computer animation. The series is peppered here and there with black humor and also incorporates a social message.
