This film was made by two students, Jacob Frey and Markus Kranzler in 2014 as a graduation project while studying at Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg in Ludwigsburg, Germany. Inspired by a comic strip by Brazilian artist Fabio Coala, Frey says he was in awe of the story-line of the comic, and was inspired to translate it into an animated short.
