grzegorz jonkajtys: ark.

Poland-born, San Francisco-based director, animator, and dark dreamer Grzegorz Jonkajtys‘ work inhabits a expansive universe. His animated short film “Ark” isn’t afraid to be bleak, embracing the futuristic vision of sci-fi but blending it with stark reality that makes it easy to imagine coming true. Technically, it’s a brilliant blend of real-life miniatures and CGI, but like the best art, he’s created a world so vivid and engaging that you never stop to think about how it was done until you’ve watched it a few times and absorbed its magic.

“Ark” was nominated for a Golden Palm at Cannes 2007 and winner of Siggraph 2007 “Best In Show”. Motionographer also pointed me to an amazing interview at FX Guide filled with behind the scenes goodness.

Watch “Ark” here.
