Blue Room has won the 2nd Award in Polish Short Films Competition at the T-Mobile New Horizons International Film Festival in Wrocław (Poland).
The jury consisted of: Claudette Godfrey, Johan Oettinger and Olaf Möller.
From the jury verdict:
A walk through an interior landscape that can be seen as a pure flight of fantasy as well as a psychological study of a mind/soul in turmoil. An admirably crafted animation that makes it complex, multilevelled narrative move by means only this particular cinematic idiom knows. Which is to say: A prime example of harmony between form/technique and content.

Blue room won the Prize for the Best Animation at 22nd Curtas Vila do Conde Film Festival in Portugal!
The Jury for Portuguese and International Competitions was composed by FABIEN GAFFEZ, VANJA KALUDJERCIC, JOSÉ MANUEL LÓPEZ, JOÃO RUI GUERRA DA MATA and PAUL NEGOESCU.
This is the Jury declaration: We welcome a universe of great artistic coherence. Only the animation cinema is able to give us this kind of visual emotion. But it transgresses the techniques of animation to deliver us cinema in a pure form.

We have finished work on my new short film. The title of the film is "A Blue Room" and it tells the story of a man who wakes up in a room from which he can't escape. It is entirely animated in painting technique. The film is a French-Polish co-production - produced by Sacrebleu Productions and Se-ma-for. I would like to thank all the people who have made a contribution to the process of creating the film.
The premiere is announced for 2014. I'll keep you informed when this happens.
