This clever pair make properly innovative films.
This Polish duo must be masochists. When you look at the body of work Strange Beast’s newest directors Katarzyna Kijek and Przemyslaw Adamski have produced, one thing stands out - the painstaking work that has gone into creating these films.
Whether it’s hand-drawn, traditional animation or contemporary art directed live action, there’s always a high level of craftsmanship on display. The extreme of this is their critically-acclaimed music video for Shugo Tokumaru’s Katachi – a phenomenal stop-motion film that required them to glue 2,000 custom-cut bits of PVC together, taking a photograph each time. The final structure was ten metres long.
