How He Surprised Her at the Movie Theatre


In Love, in the Cinema, in Marriage

What kind of trailer is this?!? With this animation film Georg proposed to his Karin: In front of the whole audience. The film was also produced by a couple: Mariella Manhardt (illustration) and Ben Thursfield (animation) from Animier es.

A Hollywood-Style Proposal:

Imagine you are having a girl’s night out at the cinema and before the film starts, you become the leading character yourself.

This is exactly what happened to Karin:

Georg asked the video producers from Animier-es For their help and they solemnly said: “Yes we will!”

Secret Arrangements:

In close collaboration they created a fairytale-like proposal in the spring of 2016.

In a short animated trailer they retold the personal love story of Georg and Karin.

The cinema was brought into the loop. Karin was not. And Georg was extremely nervous. Then, on June 4th 2016, the day had come: The film was shown in the trailer-block, right before the main movie, when Karin was there with her friends – not suspecting anything.

Georg was also hiding amongst the crowd, his knees trembling.

At the end of the trailer Georg suddenly appeared before her, with a big bouquet of flowers and a ring asking for her hand.

How did Karin react? You’ll find out here (The video is in German, but there are English subtitles available!):

Animated, too?

If this love story has animated you to propose marriage to somebody too, and you are looking for a production team, contact Animier es – we look forward to hearing from you!

We hope this video warms your hearts the way it did ours.
