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.

Koyaa The Extraordinary/ Koyaa ‒ lajf je čist odbit

Kolja Saksida (ZVVIKS)

2011, SLO, 3'


The rocky ledge is waking up to a lovely new day. Koyaa is stretching in front of the house, Mr. Raven is nearby, reading a book. As Koyaa tries to walk, he falls to his bottom – his laces are untied. He ties them back together, but, unusually, they resist; in fact, they start dancing, twiddling and souring up Koyaa's morning! Mr Raven grumbles a little at the commotion, but keeps on reading, while Koyaa is doing his best to find a particularly clever solution.

Na skalni polici se prebuja nov dan. Koyaa se preteguje pred hišo, prijatelj Krokar v bližini bere knjigo. Ko hoče Koyaa stopiti korak naprej, pristane na zadnji plati. Krive so odvezane vezalke. Koyaa jih zaveže, a zdi se, da zadeva ne bo tako preprosta, kot bi si mislil. Vezalke namreč prevzamejo stvari v svoje roke; plešejo, norijo in navsezgodaj zjutraj Koyii povzročajo preglavice. Krokar se ne pusti motiti in naprej bere knjigo, medtem ko se Koyaa trudi spraviti vezalke nazaj v čevlje.
