Getting to the top at the Linoleum? This may only sound weird. In fact, it is faboulus news for Moldovan animation. The festivals continue, and together with them we are ready to replenish our treasury with more prizes.
This weekend in Kiev, at LINOLEUM festival, the story of the greedy pirate and the unlucky Dji won a valuable prize – Special Jury Mention! But it is even cooler that “Dji. Death Sails” managed to get into the top-3 of the festival, which also include Russia (“We can not live without cosmos”) and France (“A Single Life”).
PS: we didn’t want to skip the declared master class from the famous Japanese animator Motomichi Nakamura, so it was our talented young animator, Eugene Izmailov, who represented Simpals studio at the festival in Kiev. Thus we managed to take the prize in person.
