TALK: ANIMATED WEB SERIES
In discussion with Stefanie Sargnagel, Adnan Popovic and Aisha Madu
Class struggle, the finer points of defecation, depression and anger at the patriarchy: since “Binge Living: Callcenter Monologues” (2013), the Austrian, enfant-terrible author Stefanie Sargnagel has been strolling through all areas of life without mincing her words, rather casually and often with beer in her hand. No wonder she decided to make a web series with friends around the animator Adnan Popovic in 2018. In this talk, they tell us how they got from single-frame comics to narratives, how the crowdfunding campaign worked out – and how they can bear the fact that there are no more episodes. Also part of the talk is Aisha Madu, who also knows a thing or two about blunt animation: With the web series „Schroom“ she has created a web series in which we are allowed to witness the most embarrassing moments of our fellow human beings.
