SAF NEW FILMS

In the past school year SAF members realized couple of new films, created in various animation techniques. After quite long period, group of experienced students in ages between 10 12 years realize one real puppet animated film named SUBMARINE. Working on this film was really nice experience, starting from set designing and creating of puppets till stop motion shooting....
Next film was made in standard, drawing on paper animation, but with computer colorized backgrounds, almost all done by 12 years Jakov Skok . He needed two school years to finish this film named GRANNY FLY SWATTER, in which granny fights with flies, trying to save her grandchildren.

A 12 years girl NIves Krnjak also did her first own animated film
THE WIZARD'S FOREST
(story about boy and girl, trapped in the forest by one clumsy wizard).

Besides these films, children in SAF studio started two more animated films (2D cut-out animation about black sheep and robot in the role of house cleaner), but both will be finished in the next season.
Finally, there is necessary to mention a group of twenty youngest members of SAF, who also did their first short animations.
All finished films were shown as a part of program shown at the last day of International Workshop in Cakovec Cultural center hall.
Films SUBMARINE, GRANNY FLY SWATTER and THE WIZARD'S FOREST will have real premiere at Croatian Children Film Festival which will be held at the end of September in Zagreb.
