Director Emil Goodman with an ever extraordinary cinematic vision gave another twist of visual technology when he and his fellow creatives brought the first episode of the Sina Koré series to life.
The peculiar visuals of the 27 minute long puppet animation was inspired by the traditional puppet technique of Wayang Kulit. As every Indonesian shadow puppet theatre, Sina and Koré raises moral dilemmas, basic questions and truths of the human nature. The mythical love of two gods was visualized/realized in 4 months by a handful of people. The work of animators was helped by real puppets and living actors. The puppets used as the base of animation were designed and created by professional puppeteers, who played the whole film in order to prepare the animation.
The animators have developed a special puppet motion capture in order to have the most authentic outcome of the film.
The music of SIna and Koré was composed by the well known artist of the Hungarian electronic scene, Dani Karányi.
Sina and Koré will be broadcasted on 27th June, 2015, at 10:30 pm on the Petőfi TV.
