I just learned about the Polish Animator, Witold Giersz. One of his short, animated films from the sixties is for sale on ebay in 16mm format. I'm always searching for good shorts to include in the 16mm short film festival that I curate with my sisters and hold every few years. Giersz's animated shorts will now be added to my "keep an eye out for" list. I learned more about the scope of the animated films by Giersz from an interview posted on the Michael Sporn Animation company's "splog". The interview originally appeared in a 1980 issue of the European magazine, Animafilm. The article mentioned Giersz's unique usage of paints directly on celluloid that were uncommon in mid-century animation. The film, The Little Western, that used the mixing of paints to form characters sounded interesting...and I found it so you also can enjoy the artful storytelling. So, here it is...Maly Western (1961) by Witold Giersz.
