NEVER LIKE THE FIRST TIME! is a short film where four People each get to tell the story of their first time, an animated film based on documentary interviews. As we hear the people tell their stories in their own words, these are visualized in a range of different animation styles. These are stories that range from comedy to tragedy, stories from last year or from the 1920’s, stories that are remembered with nostalgia, embarrassment or even horror. All these stories have one thing in common: it is never like the first time!
