Nimmer

produced by Sieber, directed by Lieven Vanhove

The fragile world of a couple is torn apart. What was once one landscape, are now two halves separated by a turbulent sea. Orville remains on a cliff in their home that used to be an integral part of the ruptured lighthouse, in which Imme is now stuck. He has been trying desperately to bring her back, but without success. Meanwhile, Imme continues to send her grief to the other side using birds. When suddenly her unstable world begins to collapse, Orville must come up with the ultimate solution to rescue her.

This short movie is a blend of live action, 3D-animation and a lot of post production.
