Shortfilm, 13 min

In a tiny village at the end of the world a postman has a completely original approach to his job: he substitutes the letters he is supposed to deliver with letters he himself has written. Therefore he becomes the centre-point for the villagers. But then the regional post office gets wind of the affair …

The short film POST! was created completely at TrickStudio from the first idea to the finished picture. The catchy music was composed by Alex Flucht, with whom TrickStudio has already realized many projects. POST! premiered at the Berlinale in 2008, won an award there and was able to repeat this at many other festivals worldwide.
