Der Kauboy/Troublegum

This is my graduation movie made in 2005 at the University of Applied Scienes and Arts Hannover. I’m glad to finally release it online. I hope you like it.

Gordo’s date could have been so nice. If only there wasn’t his bad breath problem and a stubborn chewing gum machine that turns out to be an perfidious trap.
