Frederik Ring "Bad Hair Day"
What do sheep dream of at night? The answer probably is shepherds jumping over gates but the hero of Frederik Ring's Bad Hair Day yearns to make himself attractive to the ewe of his dreams. It keeps him up all night. The trouble is the hairstyles of other breeds seem so much more attractive in the agricultural magazines. His solution requires recourse to clippers and hair gel, though where or when to stop is the question. And he looks positively dreadful after a night deprived of sleep! The four minute stop motion movie was produced in 2002. It has an unassuming humour to it and I liked the conclusion. Born in 1979 in Dachau, Germany, Frederik studied animation at the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg , graduating in 2006. He presently works in advertising and film work. Tomorrow I shall feature his excellent graduation movie. In the meantime his website has high quality streamed movies.
