Back in october I went to the international stop-trick festival in Poland, it was hosted in a small village just outside of Krakow, a fellow animator was having a screening over there so invited me to join.
The polish film circuit is crazy fun, there were some amazing animation playing there that were so inspiring and emotional, I spent one screening completely fixated, mouth wide open, they play with very intense subject matter so well. they don't steer away from anything. And they have a wicked sense of humour.
Made some great contacts other there....but i relay must get business cards, i was not prepared!
