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.

Experimental Animation based on Paris Explorations. The basic Idea was to feel inspired by the Urban Landscapes, the Street Art, the People and the Museums while walking through Paris. Based on that my main focus was laid on Faces (but also atmospheres) that are rather on the darker side of the spectrum.

 Eksperimentalna animacija, osnovana na raziskovanju Pariza. Osnovna ideja je bila občutiti navdih ob urbanih pokrajinah, ulični umetnosti, ljudeh in muzejih med sprehodom po mestu. Film temelji na osredotočanju na obraze (a tudi vzdušju), ki sodijo bolj na temno stran spektra.
