Academy Award nominated The Cathedral (Tomek Baginski, 2002)

In existence for a mere 15 years, Poland’s Platige Image studio has produced a truly impressive collection of short films and commercials. One of its very first short films, The Cathedral (2002) was nominated for an Academy Award and virtually every one of its shorts since then has gone on to win awards and near-universal acclaim.

Platige Image’s mantra is that creativity generates technology and technology feeds creativity. It is a wonderful vicious circle of inspiration and ideas and Platige Image has been embracing the craziest ideas and finding technologies to bring them to life since their evolution.

The presentation will look at the creation of some of their most challenging projects like the Move Your Imagination campaign, the Witcher game series and the astonishing Cyberpunk 2077 (2013). There will also be a look at the historic reconstruction of a city in City of Ruins (2010) and the recreation of a painting in Jan Matejko’s Battle of Grunwald 3D (2010).

This masterclass with Ola Watras from Platige Image will be a fascinating and indispensable look at some of the processes involved in their multi-award winning productions.

We have a special Studio Focus: Platige Image + Ola Watras Q&A programme on 31st October Find out more
