The SECOND Residency of the Academy was held in April 2022 at the Design Centre of the Ural State University of Architecture and Art, where two Schools were organized at once:
STOP MOTION, for the students of the animation department of the USUAA, and STOPMOT, for the students of Yekaterinburg art schools. The participants faced a very difficult task – shooting two 3-minute animated films in 7 days. But both young and very young animators managed to succeed! The premiere of the two films took place at the Cinema House (Dom Kino) of Yekaterinburg on 2 June 2022.
The Ural Residency. STOPMOT Children’s School
The young animators were mentored by masters O. Podyapolskaya and N. Balyabina (Pcheliny Roy Studio), A. Shipulin (Multilin Studio), T. Shitikova (Polosaty Kot Studio). In the resulting picture, the kids expressed their dreams about changes in their home city. The mixture of different animation techniques and the kids’ fresh perspective made the film very colorful and original.
The Ural Residency. STOP MOTION School
The master of the ‘adult’ school was Vasily Chirkov, assisted by director Yuri Tomilov – a Ural native.
