Veronika Obertová & Michaela Čopíková (Jana Kirschner 2012)

Over the years I have become acquainted with some fabulous musicians having viewed their animated music video. Déjà vu (all over again) with the gorgeous voice of Slovak singer, Jana Kirschner. And so to O laske nepoznanej for which I have no translation: sad music and a melancholic little tale in which fishergirl and deep sea diver confront a huge sea monster with dire results. The diver makes a great sacrifice, but then so does the girl. This is not a Disney world scenario so don't go looking for sweetness and light. That said, the inventive use of stop motion with marionettes is most refreshing, there being no attempt to mask the components of the little models and dolls. Considerable thought has gone into the business of creating special effects out of textiles. Thus the blood, seagull, lighthouse and fire beguile due to their texture and mechanical movements. The sea monster is not your typical great white either, more of  a giant, cumbersome prawn. And somehow it works better than some streamlined brute with a fin. The joint directors are two young women. Veronika Obertová and Michaela Čopíková live and were educated in Slovakia though their education has been international, Veronika training in Romania and Greece, Michaela in San Francisco and Bristol. Together they founded Ové Pictures and have quite a body of work behind them, as well as great originality and flair. As you will doubtless discover.
