The film was made of extant diaries of survivors of Leningrad siege by Nazis during World War II and modern reflections in essays – by the studio's students. The basis of the film is a classification of emotional states of the notion – the Leningrad siege, made of the real story of the survivor N. V. Zhrelova.

The mission of the film was in an informal way to understanding the notion «What was the seige like?». We learn it through understanding and comparision of the emotional state of survivors and their relatives today, through emotional analysis and deep inner associations of each one who remembers and ones who was lucky to know, what was the Leningrad siege like. These states are hunger and horror, cold, diseases, surrounding death and every day filled with the expectation of something bad to happen. But all in all, the rebirth and life in the end.


Multimedia project of Children's Multimedia Studio «M-Art» Center «Na Vasilievskom» supported by the Spanish Cultural Centre for Education and Business in St. Petersburg


Proyecto conjunto del IC San Petersburgo, Centro español de cultura y educación y del Estudio infantil de diseño multimedia «M-Art» del Centro estatal de educación infantil complementaria y creativa en la Isla Vasilievskii de San Petersburgo.

La lengua rusa y la lengua española comparten un considerable número de palabras que se pronuncian de la misma forma y que tienen el mismo significado. Si comparamos el léxico de ambas lenguas, encontramos palabras idénticas en cuanto a su forma fonética y similares en su aspecto gráfico, diferenciándose meramente en la acentuación o en el sonido específico de algunas vocales o consonantes. El hecho de que existan palabras comunes en diferentes lenguas responde, entre otros, a determinados factores históricos. Tal es el caso del origen común de algunas palabras, así como la comunicación diaria y cultural de pueblos con diferentes lenguas. A lo largo de su historia, un gran número de lenguas europeas ha ido asimilando en gran medida vocablos tomados del griego y del latín debido especialmente al surgimiento de nuevos conceptos derivados del desarrollo del Estado y la sucesiva aparición de nuevas formas de relaciones sociales, así como del avance científico y técnico, entre otros.Retomando nuestra comparación entre el léxico ruso y el español, constatamos que, si bien es cierto que existen palabras con el mismo significado, el sentido de éste puede adquirir diferentes matices según la mentalidad de las personas. A modo de ejemplo, un hablante nativo de ruso asociaría automáticamente la palabra «pionero» con la organización política juvenil, mientras que a un hablante nativo de español, lo primero que se le vendría a la mente sería, seguramente, algún famoso inventor o descubridor. Sin embargo, existe una palabra cuyo sentido es idéntico para los rusos y los españoles. Se trata de la palabra «cultura», «культура» en cirílico. Así pues, el principal objetivo de nuestro proyecto común estriba en exponer, mediante la presentación de animaciones, analogías y divergencias conceptuales de palabras que suenan igual tanto en español como en ruso.


The name of the film «Lessons of loyalty and love. Saint Blessed Ksenia» is dictated by the subject of the contest of 2011 year, which was held by Saint Petersburg eparchy of Moscow Patriarchy of Russian Orthodox Church.

The subject of the film is built on description of life of Saint Blessed Ksenia starting from childhood and youth, and also stories about the most known predictions, posthumous miracles, connected with the name of the saint patroness of Saint Petersburg. The video subjects, in which studio’s children tell about the time and place where narration of the film is developing, are combined with animation. With help of multimedia technologies and skills of young animators and their teachers, brilliantly made old engravings of Russian artists A.F. Zubov and M.I. Makhaev are becoming alive. Pictures of Saint Petersburg of 18th century with it’s poor edges and majestic center succeed each other in shades of sepia and ocher inside the window of old hurdy-gurdy.


«Green Parables» are 9 short animated stories, showing human nature and meaning of human actions in space and time. A parable through which every author sincerely and not boggling is showing the depth of his very own experiences, thinking about the world surround. By the ways of media design, integrating in itself all the key aspects impacting the consciousness of human: music, color, appearance, composition, space and motion, drawn parables are becoming alive. As traditional single-frame animation, so new digital capabilities of motion creating have been used while creating the film.

Not only characters but the nature itself are acting in the animated stories.

The environment, in which the main character of the story is living, is shaping the image and the idea of the parable in general, every of which is ending with a dictum, expressing the meaning, the morality of the parable: «Life goes away so fast as if it’s not interesting with us».


The Earth is rotating on the screen through the whole film. One by one the characters are walking by, sending their ideas and emotions to the space. Personalization of the animated image is based on an arm and two moving fingers imitating individual gait. To enhance the image every finger is worn in a shoe, which is chosen by the author according to his taste. As a result we get unique animated characters, in united style, and every character is a part of the entire film. Animation technique is mixed. Single frame animation is combined with graphical images and fonts.


12 children tell about fates of their grandmothers and grandfathers Great Patriotic War veterans. 12 stories about the way beautiful young people, full of energy, plans about the future and simply desire to live were going to war, parting with ones they loved. Many of them didn’t come back…
