“1st Romanian 3D Stereoscopic animation experience”, the first Romanian 3D stereoscopic animated feature, signed by Stefan Buzea, will be screened today at Bucharest’s Comic Strip Museum, part of a special evening dedicated to contemporary Romanian animation. The evening will kick off with the conference titled “Animation and Comic Strips”, presented by the sociologist Daniel Todoran-Rares, accompanied by a one-day exhibition and followed by a series of event-screenings: “1st Romanian 3D Stereoscopic animation experience”, excerpts from (plus a trailer of) the animated feature “Crulic – drumul spre dincolo”, by Anca Damian, shorts signed by young Romanian animation artists, as well as productions of Romanian-born artists operating abroad. On the same occasion, the www.animationmagazine.eu website will be launched – an online publication which offers news on local and international animation.
“1st Romanian 3D Stereoscopic animation experience”, a MediaPro Pictures production, directed by Stefan Buzea and produced by Raluca Coman, is the first Romanian 3D stereoscopic animated feature (which can be watched through special 3D glasses).
At the same time, everyone present will have a chance to see the comic strip which helped Bujor Stefanescu, currently one of the best-known animation artists in Spain, win, at 13, the grand prize in the second edition of the comic strip competition organized by the “Cutezatorii” magazine. Bujor Stefanescu has worked for the Walt Disney and Hanna-Barbera studios and for Cartoon Network.
The Comic Strip Museum is a pilot-project managed by the Romanian Cultural Institute and the National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC), with the support of the European network of national cultural institutes (EUNIC) in Romania, the Belgian Comic Strip Centre, and in partnership with the Romanian Comic Strip-Lovers’ Association, running between June 16 and October 16.
