The Little Boy and the Beast

Uwe directed his debut film together with Johannes Weiland at Studio Soi and designed the characters and sets. The short was broadcast at the TV show "Siebenstein" in 2009. The success of this little film, written by Marcus Sauermann, led to a children's book and multiple stage adaptions.
