Interview with Zdenko Basic, part 1: Scopes of lucidity in illustration and animation

October 19, 2010

For a very long time I’m planning to detain for an interview Zdenko Basic… practically from the beginning of my blogging… Somehow other topics and other people entered into life of this digital creature called Body Pixel…

During this year’s edition of Animafest – World Festival of Animated Film, Zdenko was detained in the quarters of the festival and examined about his crime: illustration and animation. This verdict is announced: life sentence to be served in the deepest part of the fairy land with a working obligation of doing only moving pictures and illustrations.
