“Wrapped” proves that watching New York City succumb to nature can be a surprisingly delightful experience.
After a solid run at over 100 festivals, the student-created short film has been released into the wild.
Created as a graduation short film for the Institute of Animation, Visual Effects and Digital Postproduction at Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, the project was conceived and directed by Roman Kaelin, Falko Paeper and Florian Wittmann, collectively known as Crave.
If you think you know where it’s headed, you’re probably wrong. Hang in for the twist at the end.
