Maribor, Upravna enota Maribor, 2000

StopTrik International Film Festival is dedicated to stop motion techniques of hand-made, spatial animation as puppet film, claymation, object or photography manipulation, animation of loose materials (such as salt, sand etc), pixilation, traditional cut-out and many more. The list of sub-genres could be complemented with such exceptional techniques as animation of lights, fire, yarns, threads. Artists' imagination is limitless and so we can be neither orthodox nor strict while defining the term "stop motion". The ultimate goal of this unique annual gathering is to admire and celebrate artistry of hand-made, spatial animation together with all the other drifters of the surreal, absurd or merry highways who are ready to pursue frame by frame illusion.

He created numerous animated ads, shorts, music videos with many firsts that brought not only national and international recognitions but also changed the way people perceived animation in India. In 2009 he founded Studio Eeksaurus, with his wife Nilima as his partner, that won the first ever Annecy Cristal for the country in 2015, and the President's national award in 2016 and recently in 2018 for best animated film Tokri(The Basket). Specialising in Animation Film Design, Suresh came to Mumbai looking for opportunities in making animation films. Prospects of creating animated stories in India back in 1998 was very nascent as animation was more known for the back end services that Indian companies offered foreign studios. Slowly the dream of creating original animation films was getting closer for him and his partner and there he continues to elevate the recognition of quality Indian animation content across the world. Eeksaurus also is a very well known advertising film production company that is among the top ones of our country.
