For the past eight years, Maciek & Elli Albrecht have hosted a group of seniors from my photography and film classes at their award-winning animation production and art design studio MaGiKworld Animation located in Easton. The studio specializes in character animation using traditional 2D, Flash cut-out, stop motion, time-lapse, and other animation techniques. MaGiKworld produces short films, music videos, promotions, commercials, content for web, logos and motion graphics presentations. They are the creators of the Classical Baby series for HBO and have adopted many children books to film, including animation to “Where The Wild Things Are”, among others and their work has won many awards, including the Peabody, the Annecy, and four Emmy Awards.
I want to thank Maciek and Elli for taking the time to meet with this great group of students. Below is a short film created the seniors created documenting their experience this year.
