Begründung der Jury

What could be more valuable than a diamond? Well, love, of course.
This short film draws us in within seconds, revealing its promise and the motive of our protagonist, a thief. An interesting game between tension and humor begins. The animation mixes different styles, uses sound design, cuts, and images to capture a fascinating chase between two rivals. Creative transitions, well-paced sequences and a driving score make it fun to watch. The film portrays imagination and arousal playfully without being brash or predictable.
It is difficult to tell a complete story within 6 minutes, yet the filmmakers managed to combine crime, romance, comedy, and character development.
