AMBIENT TRIP COMMANDER
Feature animation film by Legowelt
AMBIENT TRIP COMMANDER is the first feature animation film made by Danny Wolfers aka Legowelt. The animation, in which Wolfers’ paintings come to life, is hand drawn, frame-by-frame, using vibrant watercolors and is the achievement of a laborious process which took 18 months to accomplish.
With a running time of 70 minutes, AMBIENT TRIP COMMANDER presents a full original soundtrack made by Wolfers himself, which he will perform live during screenings and which features improvisation on synthesizer. AMBIENT TRIP COMMANDER offers a profound and visually stimulating voyage into Wolfers’ intriguing – and at times, uncanny – fictive world through animation and sound.
The world premiere was 7 May 2022 at the EYE film institute in Amsterdam with a live soundtrack. I will be screening the film with a live soundtrack at various places around the world soon – if you are interested in booking this for your festival/theatre/event/club/space please contact my agent firstname.lastname@example.org for enquiries and she will sort everything out.

AMBIENT TRIP COMMANDER is the story of Samantha Tapfersten, a geeky young woman who lives a rather dull life in a medium-sized European city. She works a mundane job at a synthesizer store and spends her lonely evenings playing RPG games. One day she receives a cryptic email from a hackers group inviting her to Lonetal, a village secluded somewhere deep in the European Alps. As we follow her journey to Lonetal, things become more sinister and a grand mystery starts to unfold…
