Even the audience at the KLIK! Festival (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) had a chance to vote for the various awards. The Award For Best 3-D Stereoscopic Animated Short made Olivier Ballast happy (and €500 richer) thanks to its Endtrip short.
Endtrip is a strange and breathtaking trip through the bizarre and fantastical unconscious mind of a drug-overdosed young girl. The short (05min10) movie is the brainchild of Koen de Mol, Olivier Ballast et Rick Franssen; and it is their graduation work at the same time.

Ra Paulette, the Cavedigger
Ra Paulette creates cathedral-like 'eighth wonder of the world' scuptural caves using nothing but hand tools. Working in the malleable sandstone cliffs of Northern New Mexico his creations rival the work of the great earth artists - Goldsworthy, Heiser, Smithson. But Ra’s work has gone unrecognized. Patrons who commission caves often cut him off due to artistic differences or lack of funds, leaving Ra struggling. Following his passion has cost him almost everything. Undaunted, at age 65, he’s decided to pursue his 10-year magnum opus on public land, without permission, working for no one but himself.

Lauren MacMullan, a veteran of TV series such as The Critic, The Simpsons and Avatar: The Last Airbender, came up with the idea for a stereoscopic 3D Mickey Mouse short about three years ago. So, she came up with a simple pitch that mixed the character’s vintage roots with CGI and 3D technologies.
