SMODO is an innovative stop-motion technology which connects the classic puppet animation with the newest ways of portraying movements. Using SMODO, instead of with a puppet, the animator works with its armature equipped in colourful markers. A special marker tracking system brings the armature pose into a 3D software, in which the armature is merged with a digital puppet model. In effect, on the computer screen the animation artist can see the whole puppet, just like in classic animation. SMODO technology guarantees cost-reduction, post-production stage shortening, and simplifying the work on the filmset. SMODO is also an innovative education tool. The technology idea originated with Grzegorz Wacławek, who is also responsible for it’s further development, together with Pelican Capture Sp. Z.o.o (Limited Liability Company).

 

MOMSI is a mobile app dedicated for the youngest kids in preschool age (3-6). The app gives access to animations and songs in english, all high quality content in graphic design, music and text.

Since its release, the film has received many prestigious awards, including the best documentary program for children award at the GOLDENER SPATZ German Festival of Children’s Media, a Silver Valkyrie at the Festival of Historical and War Films in Kętrzyn, and a White Elephant for the best television production of the year for child audiences.

Prezentacja polskiej branży animacji na Festiwalu Annecy i Targach MIFA

 

 

 

 

W tym roku SPPA, znacznie rozszerzyło swój profil działania podczas Festiwalu Annecy w związku z jubileuszem 70-lecia Polskiej Animacji

enrollcollapse

Festiwal Annecy należy do najważniejszych spotkań branżowych dla twórców animacji na świecie. Rokrocznie pojawia się na nich ponad 9000 filmowców, w tym około 3000 z nich uczestniczy w 4 dniowych targach MIFA. Na terenie targów spotkać można zarówno sales agentów, dystrybutorów, animatorów, ale przede wszystkim producentów szukających możliwości koprodukcji przy projektach pełnometrażowych, krótkometrażowych, serii telewizyjnych oraz projektów transmediowych. W tym roku ze względu na 70-lecie Polskie Animacji, SPPA przygotowało jubileuszowe stoisko. Tytułem wyjściowym do promocji polskiej animacji przy okazji obchodów jej 70- lecia była najstarsza polska animacja profesjonalna „Za Króla Krakusa” w reżyserii Zenona Wasilewskiego. To na motywie nawiązującym do tego filmu – król Krakus – zbudowana została identyfikacja wizualna projektu.

Ze względu na przyznane przez PISF dofinansowanie, udało się przygotować znacznie obszerniejszą prezentację polskiej animacji. Polskie stoisko było wielokrotnie komplementowane przez odwiedzających. Podziw budziła również skala wzrostu polskiego rynku animacji, liczba filmów w konkursie oraz obecność reprezentantów polskich studiów na festiwalu – polska delegacja liczyła około 20 osób.

Ze względu na swoją wielkość stoisko służyło wszystkim polskim profesjonalistom do umawiania spotkań One to one z kontrahentami z zagranicy. Każdy z producentów, przynajmniej kilkakrotnie wykorzystywał jego gościnność na spotkania. Stoisko było też miejscem udzielania informacji o polskim potencjale produkcyjnych, polskiej kinematografii oraz możliwościach współpracy z zagranicą.

Polsko – argentyńskie spotkanie koprodukcyjne

W trakcie targów SPPA, udało zorganizować się spotkanie z reprezentantami najważniejszych studiów z Argentyny. Współpraca narodziła się dzięki spotkaniu Silviny Cornillon i prezesa SPPA, Roberta Jaszczurowskiego na Berlinale. Silvina Cornillón z Gerencia de Asuntos Internacionales odpowiedzialna jest za branżową część Ventana Sur market, pracuje również w wydziale współpracy zagranicznej Argentyńskiego Instytutu Filmowego (INCAA). Verdana Sur, to targi branżowe w Ameryce Łacińskiej organizowane wspólnie przez INCCA i canneńskie Marché du Film. Targi odbywają się w listopadzie w Buenos Aires i co roku przyciągają ponad 2000 gości. Polscy producenci zostali zaproszeni na polsko-argentyńskie spotkanie o współpracy.

 

Loving Vincent

Filmem, który przyciągał na stoisko był przede wszystkim oczekiwany od wielu lat pełen metraż o Vincencie van Goghu. Odwiedzający wielokrotnie pytali o możliwość obejrzenia filmu, jego sprzedaży do dystrybucji na poszczególne rynki. Przełożyło się to również na zainteresowanie rynkiem polskiej animacji.

Ten też tytuł dostał nagrodę publiczności podczas kończącej festiwal gali nagród.

MIFA

Podczas targów udało się jednak większości tytułów zgromadzić ciekawe propozycje współpracy. Przytul mnie zostało sprzedane na rynek chiński, Studio Fumi nawiązało kolejne kontakty z producentami Norweskimi. WJTeam, dostał szereg propozycji przy animacji stop motion. EGoFilm spotkało się z potencjalnymi koproducentami produkowanego pełnego metrażu animowanego oraz nawiązało rozmowy w sprawie produkcji serii telewizyjnych. MOMAKIN prowadzi rozmowy dystrybucyjny z producentami z Ameryki Południowej i Łacińskiej. Grupa Smacznego dostała propozycję sprzedaży filmu Basia, do Włoch.

Polish Coctail 
Jednym z elementów budowania zainteresowania Polską jest co roku Polish Coctail. Podczas oficjalnego powitania uczestnicy uczestniczyli w mini quizie związanym z historią polskiej animacji, dowiedzieli się o jubileuszu 70 lecia polskiej animacji. Przedstawienie zostali partnerzy wydarzenia. Otwarciu towarzyszyły dwie maskotki polskich studiów: Wiking Tapi oraz niedźwiedź z animacji Przytul mnie, obecnej w konkursie serii telewizyjnych.

W torbach Polish Cinema znalazły się korony, broszury SPPA, ulotki przygotowane specjalnie na MIFĘ, magazyn Focus, pinki, pokrowce na latopy z napisem Polish animation. Gościom specjalnym wręczono Limitowane Wydawnictwo DVD z okazji 70-lecia polskiej animacji. Dla uczestników przygotowano poczęstunek.

Podczas koktailu w nieoficjalnej atmosferze, kontynuowano rozmowy w sprawie współpracy z partnerami polskich studiów animacji.

Wydawnictwa, trailer

Na festiwal i targi przygotowano dwie publikacje. Ulotka prezentowała polskie studia animacji, firmy w konkursie. Wprowadzała w historię polskiej animacji oraz zwięźle informowała o tym jak aktualnie wygląda rynek polskiej animacji. Biuletyn SPPA to pełna, szeroka informacja o najważniejszych polskich studiach animacji.

THE REPORT ON THE POLISH ANIMATION AND VFX MARKET

The report “Polish animation and VFX” was published at the beginning of 2016, prepared by Ecorys Poland and commissioned by Film Commission Poland, with financial support from Polish Film Institute and partner support from Polish Animation Producers Association.

The main goal of the research was to assess the economic and technological potential and the development possibilities of the Polish animation and VFX sector in the context of international competitiveness, taking related sectors into the spectrum. The people taking part in the research were representatives of 42 Polish production companies, representatives of institutions and international experts.

 

The report portrays the potential and widely understood profits resulting from the development of the animation sector in the context of the creative branch; in Poland both in the micro- profits for companies in the sector, related sectors and potential investors; and macro- scale, with profits for the whole country. The background for assessing the situation of animation in Poland was the analysis of chosen international market branches in Great Britain, France, Finland, Germany and Czech Republic.

 

The report is not yet available in English. Polish version can be downloaded here.
