Legowelt Mini Documentary
Watch this 15 minute documentary on Legowelt’s recent released feature length animation film, Ambient Trip Commander.
The mini-doc by Thomann Synthesizers offers an insight into the fascinating universe of Danny Wolfers AKA Legowelt and the making of his first feature length film. Ambient Trip Commander tells the story of Samantha Tapfersten, an introverted young woman leading a,mundane life in a medium-sized German city. She works at a synthesizer shop and spends her lonely nights playing RPGs. One day she receives a cryptic email from a hacker group who invite her to Lonetal, a remote village somewhere deep in the Alps. On her way there, things become increasingly sinister and she uncovers a huge mystery...
The film consists of 65 minutes of Wolfers’ original artworks coming to life. Each frame was intricately hand-drawn using vibrant watercolours in a painstaking process that took 14 months to complete. During the pandemic in the Netherlands, cinemas and sit down ambient concerts were one of the few cultural events still permitted to run, Legowelt decided to combine the two and create a full live soundtrack as well as the film to go with it.
