What others have said about August:

"...Matthias Hoegg has created that rare student film which manages to be stylish not just visually but also through its unconventional and layered approach to storytelling." - Cartoon Brew, read full article

"... Slickly drawn and animated throughout, the foibles of our world are analysed in a manner I found fascinating; as if one is watching one of those quirky, fly-on-the-wall documentaries that through juxtaposition of material manages to say more about a community than any narrated commentary. Amusing and elucidating, this perspective works in a visual way too: giant cigarette butts or hairy legs seen at ankle height. And alongside, a mystery of the ants, building constructions the purpose for which is unknown to man. A classy, unusual piece of work altogether!" - Ian Lumsden,, read full article

"... A stylish combination of 3D and 2D cut-out-style animation." - John Martz,
