Mr. Dokker

by admin in Comments: 0

 

3D animation story about Mr. Dokker’s one fine day, which happens to be a very important one in his monotonic life.

Mr. Dokker wakes up, he prepares, leaves home, he’s in a traffic-jam, then arrives to the office, he’s dreaming for a while, gives an indecent proposal, walks away huffily, gets into a tiny traffic incident, later in the restaurant shows sexual interest in the waitress, thinking about boobs while having dinner, gets the girl drunk, he’s up to drug abuse, suddenly sees a deer, has a road accident ‘cause of the drunk driving, walks for some sympathy, appears in a kissing scene, appears in a jealousy scene, lays on the ground in a faint, drifts with the current of a river, dives, gets a whiff of death, happens to be on a beach, meets a strange life style, takes part in a memory exchange therapy, walks like a brain-washed idiot, the sun rises on his right, so he quits the scene satisfied.

MAESTRO

by admin in Comments: 0

In an intimate dressing room Maestro is preparing for his big performance with the help of a studious iron arm.  When everything is set, Maestro goes to the light to perform his scene.

ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

MAESTRO is a short animated film directed by Géza M. Tóth. It was nominated for a 2007 Academy Award® for Best Animated Short Film and won more than 40 international festivel prizes. This individual project was based on the director’s own invented story. M. Tóth drew his inspiration for the film from his big, traditional family. He recounts growing up with antique furniture, old toys and wooden clocks that charmed him with their secrets. He felt that they all had their own stories to tell. Thus, he decided to use the bird as the caricature for Maestro and the clockwork camera movement to tell the story of Maestro’s preparation for his big “performance”. MAESTRO is the first film M. Tóth has done using 3D computer animation. He felt it was the most appropriate technique to allow the complex camera movement and lighting to illuminate the intricate relationship of the characters. By moving the camera in a clockwise fashion around the dressing room, M. Tóth tried to generate an individual and dramatic story out of a simple, common occurrence. The five minutes of the film is built on one scene, but the camera movement is continuous and jumps like the secondhand arm of a clock. This complex movement combines with the characters’ particular personality to lead you up to the finale in the final seconds of the film.
