Legowelt Mini Documentary

Watch this 15 minute doc­u­men­tary on Legow­elts 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.
