What Will the Face of Anifilm 2018 Look Like?
After several sneak peeks, we are pleased to introduce the visuals of the upcoming edition of Anifilm. It was created by director, animator and graphic artist Stanislav Sekela, graduate of the Multimedia Art College in Jihlava and the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. You may have seen his films Simple and Entangled, from which we exhibited decoration and puppets in the Štěpánek Netolický house at this year’s Anifilm. As a renowned animator focusing on 3D computer graphics, Stanislav has also collaborated on a number of films.
His artistic vision for the upcoming festival edition will take us into an intergalactic space full of ships made by water – an important element in Třeboň. We cannot tell you what will happen next, but the author’s explanation may give you a hint: “Next year’s Anifilm will be embellished by a mass of polygonal molecules refracted at a precise angle of 62.5 degrees Celsius. Digital water surfaces will come to life by means of infinitely swarming waves of excitement. 3Decagrams of virtual reality, 2Decibels of titillating music, 1Day to get sober and then again! That is the approach we chose for Anifilm’s visuals. Our experience tells us that this is the only possible approach. Ride an edge which will not cut you, but rather refresh you!”
