Munich/Vienna, 15 April 2008 – The Framepool Viral Adam & Eve won the Grand Prix Victoria silver award in the category "Virals" at the 23rd International Wirtschaftsfilmtage (renowned international business film contest for German speaking countries).
The spot was created as part of a Framepool workshop on virals given by director Wolfgang Jaiser in collaboration with the Georg-Simon Ohm University of Applied Science in Nuremberg. The award winner is student Dirk Soldner, who produced and directed the spot.
The film tells a whole different story about Adam & Eve in paradise: bored by 'dolce far niente' (the sweetness of doing nothing!), Eve takes a bite from the forbidden fruit and experiences a firework of illustrated emotions in line with the slogan "Footabe is not a sin - get inspired."
