delusion: Amazed by the beauty of nature, a little girl gets lost in the forest and tries to find her way back. While stumbling around she starts to perceive mysterious creatures. Will she overcome her fears and surpass herself?








The students Lisa M. Gierlinger and Victoria Wolfersberger have been working on delusion – a 2D animation short – since spring 2015. In the fourth semester of their studies at the university of applied sciences, the idea had been born. Inspired by the book The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Steven King, Lisa started to create the concept and the first storyline of an animated short film. It turned out to become a bigger project. Luckily Lisa got some support from Victoria, who did the whole sound design, music – and also some amazing VFX. That was the beginning of a successful collaboration. During the fifth semester, Petra Königstorfer joined the team and supported the project with some more special effects.

Furthermore, the delusion team is grateful that their lecturers Patrick Proier and Christoph Schaufler always gave great input and feedback during the production process.
