Pepita & Max

- an alpine blessing for Monsieur Raf

A wonderful animation project about the Swiss tradition of the alpine blessing.

The goal for this short film was to make Swiss traditions more accessible to children through animation. I was approached by the directors with the request to write a story for Pepita and Max that would introduce the alpine blessing in an organic and new way and would show and motivate children how to integrate the alpine blessing into their daily lives.

The short film was also broadcasted on Swiss TV SRF1.
