“Zséman”

Love the quirky movement, realistic eyes and mouths, and crunchy hand-made look of this student short. Here are some details about Zséman from one of its four filmmakers, Nadja Andrasev:

This was our fifth semester stop motion paper cut animation film just completed at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest. We were given a basic rough storyline with an open ending and had to make the films in teams of four people, with one person as visual designer (in our case, Milán Kopasz). There were some basic guidelines, for example having to use lip sync. We decided to write gibberish as dialogue, therefore there are no subtitles. Three films were made in our class based on the same basic story (the other two were digitally animated).

  • It’s a pretty sad reality to see how “20” different comments are left on the Alberto Mielgo’s post and NONE to this one.

    Nothing against Alberto’s work, just wished people weren’t so SHALLOW and compliment on posts that ACTUALLY relate to animation.

    Congratulations to all who worked on Zseman! Neat idea and great execution.

  • Love it! Quirky & fun concept and execution.
