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.

 A film and virtual reality experience, first inspired by chapter from Roland Barthes' “A lover's discourse: Fragments”. Using stop motion organic characters and set design inspired by marine biology, the story consists of two separate philosophical ideas; the concept of “Assemblage” by Deleuze & Guattari, and the concept of “Plissement” by Merleau-Ponty.

 Film in izkušnja virtualne realnosti, ki ga je prvotno navdihnilo poglavje romana Rolanda Barthesa ''Fragmenti ljubezenskega diskurza''. V filmu so uporabljeni organski stop animacijski liki in scena oblikovana po navdihu morske biologije, zgodba pa je sestavljena iz dveh ločenih filozofskih idej  iz Deleuzejevega & Guattarijevega koncepta ''asemblaže'', ter Merleau-Pontyjevega koncepta ''gubanja''.

Originally from Taiwan, I began as a fine artist investigating realism in painting and drawing. My work has evolved into multimedia works examining the existence of matter and the tension between the perceived "surface layer" and an imagined "flowing underlying layer". I examine this tension in diverse subject matter utilizing collage physical everyday objects and organic textures.
