The film was made as part of 'Preschool Poets' project, organised by Nancy Kangas and Joshua Kun. Preschool Poets is a series of eight short animated films based on poems composed by four and five year olds.
A little film about the great Rachakuiteo, owner of the street food cart somewhere in Bangkok, the maker of the tastiest noodles in the town. Even though the process might seem a bit unconventional, the result is always delicioussss.
This film is a continuous experiment of combining screen printing techniques and animation. Addition challenge here for me was creating some 3D computer generated elements and use them as a basis for the drawn animation. Moduled shapes and environments presented through printed medium transform in their purpose: something that was originally 3-dimensional is reduced to its flat representational form and through this transformation is becoming something completely new.
Sometimes even the most tragic accidents lead to happy endings..
Illusions is a film I was working on during my graduation year in Edinburgh College of Art.
This a film about two characters that meet because of an accident, due to which they find themselves lost, each in their own limbo. To get out, they need to win a simple game with only one rule: the next level is just a step down. The film is inspired by short story "Goats Eyes" by Max Frei.
Film is done entirely in screen-printing technique, which means that all the frames were drawn by hand, turned into colour separations and screen printed on A3 sheets of paper, then scanned back in to create an animated sequence. More than 400 screen prints were created while making the film.
You can but original screen prints from the film HERE
All prints were exhibited in my solo show 'Illusions" Short Film in Screen Print' in Edinburgh. More information about exhibition can be found here .
The film premiered in Edinburgh on 6th June as part of ECA Graduation Show in the Filmhouse cinema.

How To Pick Up a Girl
This film was made in response to a brief giving as part of the Animation course in Edinburgh College of Art. We were to make a sort sting for the final year's graduation show, to play in between their films in Filmhouse cinema. The only restriction was that we had to integrate ECA (Edinburgh College of Art) name in it somehow.
