Welcome back to Animator's Breakfast, my monthly podcast.
In our third episode, I'm joined by Irish Industry veteran Eimhin Mc Namara, and his influential choice of Pojd'te Pane, budeme si hrát (Hey Mister! Let's Play). Its a Czech animated tv series by Bretislav Pojar, released 1965-1973. They are essentially a series of shorts of 2.5D animation, surrounding two bears that have wild imaginations and personalities. The shape shifting alone is spectacular, and one thing that comes out of Pojar's work here is how playful the animation is. Even without knowing what they're saying, you can fully follow the story and enjoy it.
Eimhin is the current General Managing Director for the incredible and independent studio, Paper Panther. If you've never heard of them, I'd really recommend to check them out. Animation with them is a joy to watch as they experiment through the variety of mediums.
