Salon Alpin, a film production company in Lisbon, Portugal with a department in Vienna, shows off their mad skills with Much Better Now, a short animation about the adventures of a forgotten bookmark.
In "Much Better Now", the main character is a bookmark, stuck in a forgotten book, caught in a life marked by standstill in a deserted room. One day wind knocks over the book and blows the bookmark onto the table, separating them. Unfolding hands and feet, the bookmark is swept back into the pages that turn into ocean waves and the two are reunited for a journey. With a surfboard it experiences its environment in a new way -- wipe-outs, washouts and nosedives connect the hero to the ocean. The bookmark enjoys the ride of its life.
