Mascha Halberstad, an alumni of Fine Art in Arnhem, was commissioned by the renowned British band The Prodigy to produce a video clip for their new song 'Wild frontier'. The clip was posted online on Tuesday.
For the last 22 years, Mascha has been producing animation films for various clients, including the broadcasting organisation VPRO.
Her animation film 'Munya in mij', about the heavy-set Munya who is bullied, was submitted for the Emmy Awards. The 24-minute film was seen by The Prodigy frontman Liam Howlett, who was so delighted with the film that he approached Halberstad with the request to produce a video clip for ‘Wild Frontier’.
