Plody mraků
Synopsis

Furry and his friends live in burrows on a glade surrounded by dark woods. They feed themselves with seeds that turn into glowing fruit after touching the ground. However, these are quite rare. The animals’ fear of the woods stops them from leaving the glade to look for food. Instead, they resignedly wait until it falls from the sky. But Furry does not want to wait anymore.

The Stranger in my Head
Stranac u mojoj glavi
Synopsis

The film is a kind of reconstruction of The Stranger, novel by Albert Camus I read 12 years ago. I remember the impression it left in me and the atmosphere it evoked, but when it comes to characters and action, only fragments got stuck in my memory. In this short animation I tried to put those fragments into some context.
