Tradigital Mythmaking-Adapting Literature for Animation in an Intercultural Context
A DC Independent Film Festival Workshop:

Independent animation film director and professor Hannes Rall integrates academic research with a scientific approach and content creation for animated film. This workshop will negotiate different approaches and methods for adapting written literature for animation in appropriate ways:exploring the creation of genuinely Asian animation styles, which are not derived from Western concepts in two major research projects:
"Wayang Kulit" explores ways to adapt the traditional Asian shadow puppet play (which had already inspired Lotte Reiniger) in novel ways for digital animation. "Tradigital Mythmaking" explores the adaptation of a traditional Vietnamese folk-tale in a line-style evoking the artistic qualities of traditional Chinese painting. Both projects are highly interdisciplinary, with researchers from the fields of arts, anthropology, computer science and literature collaborating closely

For his film "The Cold Heart", based on a famous German fairy tale, he worked with a multi-cultural team comprising artists from Germany, Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines. Here the challenge was to achieve cohesive artistic outcomes at the same time as trans-cultural collaboration.
