Residence project:

Raimund Krumme would like to develop a film called Chambre d’Ami, and it will be about about a friendship of two characters, meting after a long separation. It will be traditionally drawn animation, the story told by movement, gesture and the depiction of space, more than dialogue.

Their relationship of mutual dependency is conveyed by the way characters and space are drawn, by movement of the figures and how the actors are positioned in the space of the "chambre", which we never leave throughout the film.
