What still remains girls, since men rarely are in a difficult and painstaking animation profession.
Cartoons can be loose, as “the Wolf’s eyelash” Elizabeth Starikova, made of colored sand and black salt, even from dill. Yuri Norstein, after watching the film the fly, recalled his relationship with the insects: “When a fly becomes a doll — it’s wonderful. I flies good relationship, and watching them is happiness.” Someone filmed a biopic about the funeral kitty, and Svetlana elchaninova — about a cockroach who knew nothing except home and work, and at some point decided to unwind with dichlorvos. No wonder Svetlana is the author of the collection of anti-drug comics.
Ivan Maksimov lives in his own world and it is dangerous for their endless imitators, direct and indirect disciples of the clones. His “Alternative walk” is about a walk in the Park by the rules, or rather, by his own rules.

They ate pickles in the day when the whole festival around it and worked on a makeshift farmers ‘ market pickles, cheese and khrenovukha. So excited about this picture. Some Directors themselves steel manufacturers. Two days a week engaged in the manufacture of cheese, and the rest of the shoot animation. Had the opportunity to evaluate both.
The 27-minute “the Choice of Prince Vladimir,” Anna Danilova and gala UNESCO — something like “Viking” in the animation how was the baptism of Rus. Prince Vladimir was voiced by Alexander Inshakov. Modern boy wolf doesn’t know who to be. So he turns to the icon with the words: “Father Nicholas, help me to write an essay”. But once your sister gets into the pagan past to Prince Vladimir, quickly determined: “I now know who I want to be. Want to become a great Prince Vladimir”. On the red square in our days, he will witness the opening of the monument to Prince Vladimir, will see the country’s President. His face we will not show, only a hand shaking baby hands. Guys will tell the President who they want to be — who is a blacksmith, and who is a farmer. And sister Vova Olga say that she is a Princess, and all because they heard of Prince Vladimir about his grandmother Princess Olga. The President will cackle in response. But the wolf will please him the answer: “my profession — to defend the Motherland”. “What’s your name, boy?” — ask the President. After learning what Vladimir says, “Be worthy of his great name.”
What do you want, boy, and often a girl? — this question could be addressed to the authors of many of the competition films. The flight was twice nominated for “Oscar” Konstantin Bronzit reminded them: “When the Director makes his movies, we — the audience — needs to understand what he wanted from us, why have wasted a year of my life.” Ivan Maximov is ready to work on the knee and quickly: “perhaps, in order to get “Oscar”, you need to bathe, and to increase the capacity for good in the viewer, do not need. My goal is to arrange his personal life. Want to do stuff and not going to invent a new cinematic language. If only the audience was happy.”
