Dina Velikovskaya is still studying at the Russian State University of Cinematography, but after watching her last short film, "My Strange Grandfather", we can easily think the director has several years of experience. Based on the stop motion puppets animation technique, the film is really beautiful, with amazing details allowing the artist to create a very unique atmosphere. Elements like the soundtrack, the wind illusion, or the post-production effects give the whole a great quality, with a nice story. A very talented student who surely will be a major animation artist in the next years.

Metro is a short animation film directed by Jacob Wyatt when he was stuudying at Brigham Young University. The story's about a little girl in the subway, a bit scared by a world she apparently does'nt really know. But after the first sequences the scenario becomes more fantastic and develops an imaginary world with a new character, a strange white fox.
Martin Allais is a pluridisciplinary designer, working essentially for illustration, animation and motion design. His productions are very varied and he works as well for advertising as for V-Jing projects (with for instance Four Tet). Born in Venezuela, latino-american culture is very important for him and in his work : he sees this culture as an original creation made of different parts of European, American and Pre-columbian cultures.
Paphù vs Idols is a french transmedias pixel art animation series, produced by Citron Bien (Pierre Dron), written by Jean-Pierre Poirel, animated by Hélène Ducrocq (Read more about her works) and musically illustrated by Fabrice Faltraue.
A great work of animation, nice colours, a childish universe and holidays... This teaser of animation film My family and the wolf will surely make you want to see the full film. Still in production, the film is directed by spanish studio Headless and produced by Nectarious Film. It seems the launch is planed for 2012, and I think it could be a great success.
