EYES & EARS 2018
The Eyes & Ears New Talents give young talent a platform to showcase their innovative work. Practical, inspiring, and promising, they present their projects to an expert audience as part of the European Conference for Design, Promotion and Marketing. The industry meeting offers them the opportunity to get to know those who are always looking for young creative talent. At the same time, these young talents give long-time media professionals creative ideas for their own work.
On September 14, a jury chose the three finalists who will present their projects as part of the Eyes & Ears Conference.

A Guide to the Apocalypse
Adrian Graf, Graduate of ZHdK Zürich

In 2018, scientists set the "Doomsday Clock" to two minutes to twelve. The symbolic clock indicates how close mankind is to a devastating catastrophe. Parameters such as nuclear armament, the environment and political uncertainty are taken into account. The bachelor thesis "A Guide to the Apocalypse" describes five possible scenarios for the end of the world and uses photos and videos to illustrate general survival strategies.
Henning Himmelreich, Graduate Filmakademie Baden Württemberg, LudwigsburgAfter Silence focuses on the inner process of mental and emotional regeneration of the human psyche. As a visual symbol of this process, the film makes use of Egyptian mythology and the odyssey to the afterlife described therein in an abstract way.
