Maribor, Upravna enota Maribor, 2000

StopTrik International Film Festival is dedicated to stop motion techniques of hand-made, spatial animation as puppet film, claymation, object or photography manipulation, animation of loose materials (such as salt, sand etc), pixilation, traditional cut-out and many more. The list of sub-genres could be complemented with such exceptional techniques as animation of lights, fire, yarns, threads. Artists' imagination is limitless and so we can be neither orthodox nor strict while defining the term "stop motion". The ultimate goal of this unique annual gathering is to admire and celebrate artistry of hand-made, spatial animation together with all the other drifters of the surreal, absurd or merry highways who are ready to pursue frame by frame illusion.

Jan Pfeiffer

Hand drawn animation /  4’41 / 2008


Jan Pfeiffer produced the animation on Sophia before he visited the place or saw any photos of it. He primarily focused on how the communist era influenced and defined the contemporary face of the Capital. He based his drawings on the experience from his own hometown and on his observation of other cities in post totalitarian countries.
