Platige Image 3D: Studio Focus + Ola Watras Q&A (15)

October 31, 2013
7:00 pm

Poland’s Platige Image Film Studio is having a very major say in the shaping of 3D stereoscopic animation. In existence for a mere 15 years, Platige Image has produced a truly impressive collection of short films and commercials. One of its very first short films, The Cathedral, 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.

This programme will be introduced by very special guest Ola Watras from Platige Image who will take part in a Q and A after the screening. Her perspective on where digital animation is headed will be fascinating.

Please note: this programme takes place in two parts – the first 8 films will be 2D and the last 4 will be 3D stereoscopic.
