Legowelt presents first feature-length animation
“AMBIENT TRIP COMMANDER offers a profound and visually stimulating voyage into Wolfers’ intriguing – and at times, uncanny – fictive world through animation and sound.”
Legowelt AKA Danny Wolfers has released his first feature-length animation film. AMBIENT TRIP COMMANDER is released by his own Nightwind Animation Studios and consists of 65 minutes of Wolfers’ original artwork coming to life. Each frame was intricately hand-drawn using vibrant watercolours in a painstaking process that took 14 months to complete.
“AMBIENT TRIP COMMANDER is the story of Samantha Tapfersten, a geeky young woman who lives a rather dull life in a medium-sized European city. She works a mundane job at a synthesizer store and spends her lonely evenings playing RPG games. One day she receives a cryptic email from a hackers group inviting her to Lonetal, a village secluded somewhere deep in the European Alps. As we follow her journey to Lonetal, things become more sinister and a grand mystery starts to unfold…” — Legowelt
The Dutch première will be held on May 7th 2022 at the EYE Filmmuseum in Amsterdam, accompanied by a full original soundtrack performed by Legowelt featuring live improvisation on synthesizer. Tickets available here. Further live screenings are available for theatres, festivals and clubs etc.
