The FOURTH Residency of the Academy was held at the end of October in Khanty-Mansiysk at the Arts Centre for Gifted Children of the North – a unique vocational boarding school which celebrated its 25th anniversary this year. The participants of the Residency were students of the Art department of the school. The Residency was led by Oksana Cherkasova, a co-founder of Khitruk Academy, with the assistance of teachers/mentors A. Shipulin (director, animator, photography artist), D. Strizhov, and I. Khanzhin (directors, artists, graduates of the Ural State University of Architecture and Art).
Working together, the young artists and Ural animators created a film comprising two techniques (object and plasticine animation) and unified by the common theme: an Animated Congratulatory Message on the Anniversary of the Arts Centre for Gifted Children of the North.
