Marek Serafinski’s Race for a Good Looong Bank Holiday Weekend

May 30, 2011 Leave a comment

I am going on holiday soon but have already planned a few posts in advance, so I hope you won’t get bored with old, unchanging content of Frogs and Squash. And… today, despite the fact we still have a longer bank holiday weekend here and we should stay lazy both physically and intellectually, I decided to stick to experiment in animation. Ladies and gentlemen, let’s welcome Marek Serafinski!

Yes, he’s made quite a few films by now and got quite a few prestige awards for them, but I guess the most recognizable stays his Race from 1989. Race was awarded Grand Prix at festival in Lipsk and got a special award in Annecy. And actually it’s the only film by Marek that I have been able to find full online. An extract from one of his latest films, Idea (2007) is available on Serafinski studio website – with Malgorzata Bosek passing by as if accidentally (spot the lady in red!).

What characterises Marek’s style in animation is his combining photography, animation and graphics, where real pics of actors are a base for further picture processing and creating movement.

If you find any other Marek’s films online, do let me know. Also do keep in mind, Race is available on Anthology of Polish Animated Film (2 DVDs) along with other Polish productions from 1958 – 2005.

And in the meantime, let’s enjoy Race. Another funny piece – do you see the humour too? the way I do? 😉 And does it make you feel like going for a ride?
