When a picture is worth 1000 words, and 280 characters can tell a whole story, our artists have mastered the art of short and rich visual storytelling. For 2 decades now, our animations have been winning the hearts of viewers and film critics all over the world. Now, we would like to share them with you. We’ve put together a special series of our animated shorts along with interesting stories about how they were made. In brief – it’s time for LONG STORY SHORTS!

Platige Originals | THE CATHEDRAL

“…The reds, yellows, and blues of madeleine shine like dawn through the ribs of the Cathedral, everything here is either in shadow or painted with viscous colors. I’ll sit, I’ll quiet my heart. I thought that it would be mainly fear, an animal terror, but I feel only regret now, a great, motionless, heavy regret, the squeezing weight of dark water. No thoughts, no instructions for the body, even my eyes are dry. There is only a little tightening in my chest. But why speak, silence is better…”
