“Maison Sonore” by Jonatan Schwenk “Maison Sonore” by Jonatan Schwenk

The weary residents of a large residential complex want to get away from it all, until a young man with a musical instrument moves into the building. Jonatan Schwenk‘s Maison Sonore is an engimatic piece with a simple concept and loads of atmosphere. The stop motion puppets successfully blend realism and caricature, and the wide-angle compositions and eerie calm heighten the film’s tension. Schwenk created the diploma project at the Offenbach University of Art and Design in Germany.
