Project Description


Official website:


Albert is a 6 minute long animated short film. It deals with one of the biggest social problems: loneliness and the related psychological mechanism and the possible change of the individual. These individuals have their own solutions to their seemingly small problems… if they dare to face them.

Albert has to wake up to the ringing of his wife’s cell phone. It takes him quiet an effort to get it from her reticule because it is full of other strange things. Finally he brings the mobile to his wife… who might not be who she seems.


Albert is a completely average, contemporary person. He is the kind of man who could be our neighbor. The only problem he fights everyday and effects his life is loneliness, although he has a perfectly worked out plan how to deal with and how to end to this state.
