Fun or addiction, where do you draw the line?
You probably remember the 90’s music videos from the dance hits Blablabla and The Riddle from Gigi D’ Agostino. These animated music videos by Hykade suddenly made line drawings all the rage on MTV. Hykade revisits his simple and effective animation style for a short with a message that will hit home with the 90’s pill-popping rave generation.
After studying Fine Arts in Stuttgart and working as an animator in London, Hykade finished his studies at the Film Academy in Baden-Württemberg. He made a name for himself with his trilogy The Country: We lived in the Grass, The Ring of Fire and The Runt. His psychedelic short Love & Theft was one of our favorite animation films at Go Short 2011.
