Ambition of Frogs and Squash (yes, this blog has an ambition) is to provide at least a general insight into what is actually happening on the scene of Polish animation – especially now when it seems so vibrant and full of amazing, young talents. There are not many English sources on the subject, hence I would like to point you in these young animators’ direction and, where possible, present their work or at least let you know where to find it.

There will also be a place for updates on Polish publications, articles or comments appearing online that may not be available in English.

Hope you enjoy reading even though some other topics may appear out of the blue.

Comments are welcome (to show me somebody reads it at all!) 🙂
