Contemporary Serbian Animation
What is hidden in this short preview of the new Serbian author animation? First of all, the visual and narrative variety, created by different approaches to animation techniques and acting/narrator structure in most films, as well as the unusual "roles" of the main characters, who are occupied with their own quests.
The program opens live action 3D creation ID, created within the DigitalKraft studio, whose main character leads an internal psychological struggle in the sci-fi space, in order to put all the pieces in their place. The collaboration between Tanja Brzaković and Vuk Palibrk gave birth to an interesting film, based on a poem by Duško Radović, about a wolf who realizes that true freedom is necessary in life. Mihajlo Dragaš skilfully drives us through the riffs of the metal music of the band Nula with his visuals, building on the soundtrack and creating an impressive animation experience. Ana Nedeljković and Nikola Majdak continue to show us the experiences of their plasticine heroes, who are trying to avoid the traps of the post-capitalist simulacrum at all costs. Darko Dacović's first professional animated film Tiamat explores mythological creatures and their organic structure in an audio-visual experiment. Top cartoonist and animator, Aleksa Gajić, in the last film on the program, in collaboration with actor Tihomir Stanić, presented us a short humorous study of animated characters.
