The feature-length fairy tale directed by Peter Bebjak was created in a Czech-Slovak co-production. It starred well-known actors Tomáš Maštalír, Lukáš Vaculík, and Csongor Kassai. In our studio, we prepared all the magic associated with the negative character of the king’s advisor Svarog – from the initial design to the final render. Svarog’s magic was accompanied by black, thick smoke and floating embers resembling ashes or burnt pieces of paper. We created these effects to match Svarog’s movements and intentions. Final compositing was done by Studio 727, which invited us to this collaboration.
