Pjotr Sapegin – Aria

Our very own, Dek writes on his personal video blog:

I never cried watching a movie. Never, with a single exception. This one. So, prepare the napkins, you may need some: this movie has probably the most painful final scene ever.

I have to agree. The end scene and so many others in this film are incredibly powerful given that it is just puppets with limited facial expressions. Outstanding achievement! Every visual metaphor is so appropriate, so significant. And, of course, it is simply gorgeous to look at.

    Does anyone know what the character was made out of? It looks like a wax or clay? Is there a way to contact the director?

    Also, is Aria on a short compilation ready for purchase?

    As I wrote in my post, the short is on the first DVD installment of “The Animation Show” by Mike Judge and Don Hertzfeld.

    The author was a member of stopmotionanimation.com:

    The director Pjotr Sapegin lives and works in Oslo, and at his company’s webpage I found his email adress: pjotr@pravda.no

    Good luck! (Yes, it is a lovely film. A DVD collection of all his short animation films is available to purchase from the store at The Norwegian Film Institute: http://www.nfi.no/filmbutikken/)
