Au Pair ja The Steinway ovat vuoden 2017 animaatiokilpailuiden voittajat

Tatu Pohjavirran ja Mark Ståhlen elokuva Au Pair on vuoden 2017 Kotimaisen animaatiokilpailun voittaja. Elokuva kertoo naisesta, joka lähtee au pairiksi erään miehen pahvista tehdylle perheelle. Tuomaristo ylisti elokuvan ohjausta sekä rehellisen tuntuista tarinaa, ja kehuu elokuvaa tasapainoiseksi ja tunnelmalliseksi.

Vuoden 2017 Kansainvälisen kilpailun voittajaksi on nimetty italialainen lyhytanimaatio The Steinway, jonka on ohjannut Massimo Ottoni. Elokuva kertoo itävaltalaisista sotilaista, jotka ensimmäisen maailman sodan aikana löytävät pianon keskeltä tuhoa. br Tuomaristo koki että elokuva antaa uuden näkökulman humaaniin osaan itsessämme. Se pitää hyvin otteessaan koko kestonsa ajan hyvän ohjauksen sekä loistavan animaatiotekniikoiden hallinnan avulla. Tunnelma muuttuu tehokkaasti karuista ja kylmistä sävyistä iloisiin ja lämpimiin. Hahmot olivat hyvin rakennettuja ja tuntuivat aidoilta henkilöiltä, joilla on todellisia unelmia ja toiveita.

KOKO ANIMATRICKS-TIIMI TOIVOTTAA TUHANNESTI ONNEA VOITTAJILLE!
