Last year during Ganz Novi Festival I did a series of interviews with artists, curators and performers for the festival as a commissioned work, they were published for Kulturna TV. It’s time to re-blog them all before the new edition of the festival. The first artist is Naja Lee Jensen from Sweden.

Here is my next guest from Funny Comics Show 2010! Serbian comic book artist and animator Aleksa Gajic… Beside being a respectful international comic book artist, illustrator and video maker, Aleksa launched in 2009 his first feature-lenght animated film ‘Technotize: Edit and I‘.
Technotize has been warmly accepted by the audience and critics in the whole South East European region, not only because of shared memories, but because it showed that with passion and persistence ideas with smaller budget than you would expect can arise on the horizon.
