From the ORF-Announcement:
"... At 13, he experimented with a Super-8 camera, at 15 he shoots his first film with real people and enrolls a star actor from the Berliner Schaubühne: Libgart Schwarz. The script is monumental, reads like a Japanese B-Movie and bears the title: "Monster in Salzburg". The giant is a 30-centimeter-long wooden doll with yarn hair and is brought to life by means of stop-motion. Widrich built entire streets as a model..."

Models are built of a number of Salzburg's streets for this work. The monster is a 30-cm wooden doll with yarn hair, which is brought to life by means of stop-motion. His study of film theory begins this year with the purchase of numerous relevant books and the analysis of screenplays.
