Jumping into 2019!

New year, new Appetite! We haven’t posted the entire 2018 but that’s not because we were sleeping. On the contrary – we’ve been busy making the storyboard, beautifully drawn by renowned animator Velislava Gospodinova . We’re looking forward to sharing some of the drawings with you once the process is complete!

Below: the new and redesigned Rabbit!

Work in progress…

This month, we’ve been preparing the animatic for the teaser, doing rough edits of the live footage and finishing the animation set. Here are some pictures of it, as work on it progresses. It will be animated using stopmotion by animator Michael Schmacke and composited with other components to create to world inside the Rabbit’s stomach.


We shot the teaser!

We just shot the live action part of our teaser in a friendly studio in Kreuzberg, Berlin.

On the photo below -the wonderful Appetite CAST and CREW after our teaser shoot this Sunday, November 3rd! ♥

It was a special day – new moon, solar eclipse, Diwali – the Festival of Light in India, retrograde Mercury – time to finish what you started. We sure head a lot of fun during that 12 hour + shooting. Now it’s time to start on the teaser animation and post production… still a long way but we made a big step in the right direction!

Appetite Exhibition opening night photos

On May the 3rd  our exhibition opened with a bang at the Porcelaingres space in Berlin. There were three great performances, in the atmosphere created by Yagama’s rabbit and cannibalistic paintings and photos, research elements towards the film, illustrations and the stomach installation.

First, inside the tentacled visceral world of the Rabbit’s innards created by Yagama and Eva Gardner, there was an improvisational performance  with the film’s actors. The costumes were by Odile Hautemulle, props by Michi Ukawa, with Dieter Rita Scholl, Lynn Femme, Ada Kowalewski, Tomer Dotan and Stephen Patrick Hannah,  art direction and direction by Yagama.

The next performance by Grapeshade took place in another room of this beautiful space. The group plays with violin, bass and dance in and innovative and improvisational way. The members of the band present were Klaus Janeke, Ingo Reulecke, and the violin player in our film, Biliana Voutchkova.

The party ended on an idm note with our sound artist Viktor Marinov playing a dj set with his own music as Vataff Project.

It was a wonderful beginning to our project and we hope to raise some funds as well as the show goes on.

All art is available as prints of various sizes. The exhibition continues until June, so if you are in Berlin, be sure to check it out! Yagama will be announcing guided tours of the exhibition explaining the project for those who couldn’t come to the opening.T he information will appear here and www.facebook.com/appetiteproject here.

Appetite Exhibition: Making of!

Preparations for the Appetite exhibitions went on for some time, it was a huge endeavor and we are very happy with the results. For weeks  Yagama, Eva Gardner, and Michi Ukawa were working on the intestines for the rabbit’s stomach and the props for the dinner table, and Odile Hautemule was preparing the costumes, while our DoP Dian Zagorchinov was helping with driving us all around. We started moving into the exhibition space on Monday and we finished on Friday, a few hours before the exhibition. We also have say thanks to Peter Gund for the table ;). Here are some photos from the making of the exhibition. The opening night photos from the performances are coming soon, stay tuned…
