While stressing out over her final exams, Antonia the Cow meets the night watchman, Kurt the Lion.They fall in love, but their relationship is met with great skepticism by the world around them. Antonia‘s farm animal roommates have little time for these predatory posers from the wild, while Kurt‘s pride still view themselves as the kings of the jungle and can‘t understand why he‘d choose a cow as a partner. When a sheep goes missing, suspicion falls on the carnivorous Kurt…

Your Spotted Skin is the animated feature film grown ups have been waiting for: a charming romantic comedy that is imbued with insightful observations of modern society. The script has won the renowned Thomas Strittmatter Award at the Berlinale 2020. It goes hand in hand with show stopping cinema and believable human/animal characters, created through performance capture and advanced CGI. The movie will be released in 2024.


“Extremely amusing, unusual and bizarre, Daniel Nocke tells this love story between predator and prey, which comes to a dramatic head when Antonia’s roommate sheep disappears without a trace. A highly original and enjoyable animated fable for adults with multi-faceted characters, delicious dialogues and bizarre scenes in which human neuroses are reflected ‘animalistically’ well.” (Excerpt jury text Berlinale 2020 Thomas Strittmatter award)
