The Golden Fleece _Thursday 9th-Friday 10th

by Martyna Koleniec

In the words of Ray Harryhausen, “I was inspired by Willis O’Brien. I don’t know who he was inspired by, I think, Michelangelo...”

the workshop
It’s the hunt of the Golden Fleece according to the fantasy movie „Jason and the Argonauts“ (1963) and as a tribute to our stop motion hero Ray Harryhausen. We’ll bring you on a surrealistic dreamlike experience trip leaded by stop motion animator Martyna Koleniec who is well known for her experimental DIY style. She is having a playfully approach to create an aesthetic and fantastic world of little creatures in her very special narrative way. We’ll use the time of her visit to build characters and a proper set full of dreamy landscapes. And we get lost in stop animation. Beware of sea monsters, giants and dragons! A fantasy dream comes true.

the technique
puppet animation // claymation

the goal
... because we’re crazy 1.11 minutes recovering of the good old times of this antique journey in the new fresh and shiny look created with the unique stop motion style of Martyna Koleniec.
