Today at Multimatograf the first pitching was held and the winner is Alexandra Lukina from Moscow. She presented a project of animation movie «Breaking news». Marina Moshkova with animation movie «Stencilled» took the second place.
Pitching is a presentation of projects made by beginners to experts and investors who can help financing and producing the project. The jury included producer Heather Kenyon, animator, director, and screenwriter Jymn Magon, and director and screenwriter Maksim Voskoboev.
Ten young authors presented their works. Projects of short films — animated movies and documentaries — were shown.
The jury distinguished three project ideas they liked. One of them is a short fiction film «Vacuum Cleaner» by Yegor Chichkanov who is taking part in the festival for the fourth time. The judges also liked the idea of the film «Lenin-trip» introduced by Yaroslav Kuzin.
The jury noticed a group from Vologda that talked about their idea to create a documentary about young Kandinsky’s visit to Vologda and how folk art of Kadnikovskoe county inspired him. Heather Kenyon said that such films Vologodians definitely should make.
