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.

Koyaa - Naughty Toy Car/ Koyaa ‒ razigrani avtomobilček

Kolja Saksida (ZVVIKS)

2017, SLO, 2'45''


 

It's a rainy day and Koyaa decides to tidy up his room. In the background, the Raven is sizing up a wooden plank for his new birdhouse. When Koyaa is done cleaning, he proudly looks around, stepping on a toy car he overlooked. He takes a crazy ride, zig-zagging around the place like a figure skater out of control! The naughty car is taunting Koyaa, making a ruckus and refusing to behave, but Koyaa manages to trick it into playing nice with another clever idea. The house is once again peaceful.


Na deževen dan se Koyaa odloči, da bo pospravil svojo sobo. V ozadju Krokar meri leseno desko za novo ptičjo hišico. Ko Koyaa konča s pospravljanjem, se ponosno razgleduje naokoli, pri tem pa po nesreči stopi na leseni avtomobilček in, stoječ na njem, kmalu neobvladljivo kroži sem in tja po sobi kot drsalec. Razigrani avtomobilček z vsemi mogočimi vragolijami nagaja Koyii in nikakor ne želi nazaj na svoje mesto. Koyaa reši težavo z ustvarjalno idejo in v hiši znova zavlada red.

Koyaa - Wild Sunbed/ Koyaa ‒ divji ležalnik

Kolja Saksida (ZVVIKS)

2017, SLO, 2'45''


 

It's a hot summer day and Koyaa wants to relax in his sunbed. As usual, Mr. Raven is busy building a birdhouse, this time from straw. Koyaa lies down, shielding his face from the sun. Suddenly, the sunbed snaps closed, trapping Koyaa inside, then spitting him out like a cannonball, towards the cliff where he barely manages to hang on to a vine! Koyaa weaves a lasso from the plant, but instead of catching the sunbed, he takes a rodeo on its back. It seems like he needs another brilliant idea.


Na poletni dan si Koyaa zaželi počitka na ležalniku. Krokar je kot običajno zatopljen v izdelavo nove ptičje hišice, tokrat iz slame. Koyaa se uleže, z dlanjo si zakrije obraz pred močnim soncem. Ležalnik se nepričakovano zapre in tesno stisne Koyoo, potem pa se nenadoma odpre, da Koyaa kot iz topa poleti proti skalni steni, kjer se oprime ovijalke, da ne pade. Iz ovijalke oblikuje laso, ujame ležalnik, a ta ga potegne, da jezdi na njem kot na rodeu. Koyoo lahko reši le premišljeno ukrepanje.

Koyaa - Flying Workbook/ Koyaa ‒ leteči zvezek

Kolja Saksida (ZVVIKS)

2017, SLO, 2'45''


 

On a pleasant day in autumn, Koyaa decides to write in his workbook. The wise Raven is nearby, folding old magazines and newspapers. Koyaa opens a page, but the book slams itself shut. Surprised, he tries opening it again, but the book just floats off into the air! Koyaa hops up on the table. It's no use, he still can't grab it. While giving chase, he has an idea though. Using a clever plan, he manages to calm down the workbook so the Raven can finish building his recycled-paper birdhouse.


Na lep jesenski dan se Koyaa odloči, da bo pisal v nov delovni zvezek. V bližini Krokar zlaga revije in časopise. Koyaa odpre platnico, a se ta takoj sama zapre nazaj. Začuden jo poskuša znova odpreti, a mu zvezek uide iz rok in poleti visoko v zrak. Koyaa skoči na mizo, a nikakor ne more zagrabiti zvezka, ki ga preletava z vseh strani. Medtem ko ga lovi, nenadoma dobi idejo. S premišljeno taktiko mu končno uspe umiriti zvezek, medtem pa Krokar iz časopisov že sestavi novo ptičjo hišico.

Koyaa - Silly Stickers/ Koyaa ‒ vztrajne nalepke

Kolja Saksida (ZVVIKS)

2017, SLO, 2'45''


 

Koyaa plans to paste some stickers to the window of his house, while the Raven is applying glue to the wireframe of his new creation. Koyaa tries sticking the things to the glass, but they keep unsticking one after another. He tries holding them down, but they slip away, floating in the air, chuckling. Koyaa is desperate for a way to get the silly stickers to stick! Finally, he's got a brilliant idea. Soon enough, the stickers are on the window, and Mr. Raven's latest birdhouse is complete too.


Koyaa se domisli, da bi okno hiše polepil z nalepkami. Medtem Krokar z lepilom maže žičnato ogrodje za novo ptičjo hišico. Koyaa premišljeno lepi barvne nalepke na okno, vendar se mu druga za drugo sproti odlepijo. Poskuša jih zadržati tako, da jih pritisne s prsti, pa se mu izmaknejo, odletijo stran in poplesujejo v zraku. Koyaa razmišlja, kako bi ukrotil nemirne nalepke. Na misel mu pade odlična rešitev! Nalepke so prilepljene, Krokar pa se že ponaša z novo ptičjo hišico.

Koyaa - Dancing Socks/ Koyaa ‒ plešoče nogavice

Kolja Saksida (ZVVIKS)

2017, SLO, 2'45''


 

In the morning, Koyaa wakes up to the sound of a cuckoo clock. The Raven is already up, handling a huge ball of wool. Koyaa opens a drawer to take out a pair of socks. Rubbing his eyes, he can't believe what he's seeing: the socks are alive! They wiggle, then slide from his hands and start flopping about. They jump into the laundry basket, where Koyaa bravely follows. He manages to catch one, but the other's still loose ... Koyaa thinks for a while, then has a great idea how to lure it out!


Jutro je in Koyoo prebudi zvok budilke. Krokar je že pokonci, tokrat ima opravka s klobčičem volne. Koyaa odpre predal, da bi iz njega vzel par nogavic. Ves zaspan težko verjame temu, kar vidi. Nogavici oživita! Migata kot naviti, potem pa mu uideta iz rok in začneta poskakovati po sobi. Nogavici skočita v košaro za perilo, Koyaa pa pogumno za njima. Eno uspe ujeti, a druga se mu spretno skrije. Koyaa razmišlja, potem pa le dobi idejo, kako bo tudi drugo zvabil iz njenega skrivališča.

Koyaa - Freezing Scarf/ Koyaa ‒ zmrzljivi šal

Kolja Saksida (ZVVIKS)

2017, SLO, 2'45''


 

Koyaa wants some fresh air. It's winter outside and he'd like to wear his scarf. As he reaches to grab it, the item springs to life, slithering around the room like a snake. Baffled, Koyaa tries catching it, but it's too slippery. The Raven, in the meanwhile, is building a birdhouse out of ice cubes. The scarf wraps itself around Koyaa, blinding him. He flops around then crashes to the floor. Ouch! Sitting and thinking, Koyaa comes up with a witty solution to the sly garment's challenge.


Koyaa bi se rad naužil svežega zraka. Zunaj je zima, zato si namerava nadeti šal. Ko ga želi prijeti, šal oživi in se začne plaziti po dnevni sobi kot kača. Presenečeni Koyaa mu sledi, šal se mu spretno izmika. Krokar se na dogajanje požvižga in naprej sestavlja ptičjo hišico iz ledenih kock. Šal se vije po Koyii, dokler mu ne zakrije oči. S šalom čez oči izgubi orientacijo in zgrmi po tleh. Koyaa razmišlja, nato pa z bistroumno rešitvijo, kot zna le on, pretenta izmuzljivi šal.

Koyaa The Extraordinary

Koyaa The Extraordinary/ Koyaa ‒ lajf je čist odbit

Kolja Saksida (ZVVIKS)

2011, SLO, 3'


 

The rocky ledge is waking up to a lovely new day. Koyaa is stretching in front of the house, Mr. Raven is nearby, reading a book. As Koyaa tries to walk, he falls to his bottom – his laces are untied. He ties them back together, but, unusually, they resist; in fact, they start dancing, twiddling and souring up Koyaa's morning! Mr Raven grumbles a little at the commotion, but keeps on reading, while Koyaa is doing his best to find a particularly clever solution.


Na skalni polici se prebuja nov dan. Koyaa se preteguje pred hišo, prijatelj Krokar v bližini bere knjigo. Ko hoče Koyaa stopiti korak naprej, pristane na zadnji plati. Krive so odvezane vezalke. Koyaa jih zaveže, a zdi se, da zadeva ne bo tako preprosta, kot bi si mislil. Vezalke namreč prevzamejo stvari v svoje roke; plešejo, norijo in navsezgodaj zjutraj Koyii povzročajo preglavice. Krokar se ne pusti motiti in naprej bere knjigo, medtem ko se Koyaa trudi spraviti vezalke nazaj v čevlje.

2013, SLO, 3'30''


 

Koyaa wants to take advantage of the beautiful sunny morning and do some gardening, but not everything goes according to the plan. The flower he plants will not grow at first. Then, under the influence of music, it turns into a flesh-eating monster and tries to devour him. However, with Raven's help Koyaa gains control over the ferocious flower.


Koyaa želi lepo sončno jutro izkoristiti za vrtnarjenje, vendar mu stvari ne gredo po načrtu. Posajena roža najprej noče rasti, nato pod vplivom glasbe zraste v mesojedo pošast, ki ga poskuša pojesti. Koyaa s Krokarjevo pomočjo obvlada podivjano rožo.

Hi, Koyaa!

Hi, Koyaa!/ Živjo, Koyaa!

Marina Andree Škop (ZVVIKS, Studio dim)
2017, SLO, 11'20''


 

The documentary takes us far back, to the very beginnings of the story of the animated hero Koyaa, which happens to have its roots in the children's world of author Kolja Saksida. Doors are opened behind the scenes of Koyaa's creation process, as other members of the film crew join the audience to show firsthand how the set is made how Mr. Raven comes to life and what Koyaa's voice and puppet are made of. While our entertaining narrator tells you about Koyaa's world, the film presents the overall magic not only of Koyaa but of animation as a whole.


Dokumentarni film nas popelje daleč nazaj, na sam začetek zgodbe o animiranem junaku Koyii, v otroški svet avtorja Kolje Sakside. Odprejo se nam vrata v zakulisje nastajanja animiranih filmov Koyaa, kjer spoznamo tudi ostale člane filmske ekipe in se na lastne oči prepričamo, kako izdelajo scenografijo, kako oživi Krokar in kako glavni junak Koyaa dobi svoj glas in stas. Medtem ko nam duhovito in poetično pripovedovanje od blizu predstavi Koyoo, nam film prefinjeno razkrije, da ni čaroben samo Koyaa, temveč svet animiranega filma nasploh.
