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!

THE KINEMATOGRAPH | Platige Originals

The visual concept of the film is the fruit of the director’s collaboration with visual designer Jakub Jabłoński, who breathed life into the project by creating a total of 18 characters and hundreds of hand-painted backgrounds.
The world conceived by Jabłoński takes the form of a colorful, Victorian-style fairy tale, creating a completely innovative visual concept.
“The Kinematograph” was shortlisted for a nomination to the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film.
