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.

“I continue to feed my obsession with an intersection between stop-animation in its retrospective final form, and the physical performance which created it. Time is concentrated through the ritual of animating a puppet, and by exposing this procedure I intend to play in this metaphysical moment.”


Graffiti Anarch-imation is a durational animation-performance work in which the artist Thomas Johnson animates a puppet of his likeness over a 6 hours period. In this new performance work Thomas will bring life to his puppet self and make it perform the task of spray-painting a piece of graffiti artwork upon a public wall, in Maribor.

''Še naprej hranim svojo obsesijo s prepletom stop motion animacije v njeni retrospektivni končni podobi ter fizično izvedbo, ki jo je ustvarila. Čas je zgoščen skozi ritual animacije lutke in z razodevanjem tega postopka nameravam igrati v tem metafizičnem trenutku.''


Graffiti Anarch-imation je trajajoč animacijski performans, v katerem umetnik Thomas Johnson animira lutko po svoji podobi v razponu 6 ur. V svojem novem performansu bo Thomas vdahnil življenje svojemu lutkovnemu jazu, ki bo na javni zid v Mariboru, narisal grafit.
