    My graduation project at the University of the Arts Bremen in 2014.

    Watching in fullscreen is recommended!

    From inception to completion, making "The Approximate Present" took me about one and a half months of full-time work.

    The idea that emerged from the premise to make an animated short about the weather was rather simple: using the basic notion of chaos theory (the slightest variation in initial conditions will eventually lead to an unpredictably different outcome) as a narrative structure.
