Hedgehog in the fog

In case you haven't already seen it don't miss out...
possibly the loveliest animated short ever, made in 1975 by the amazing Russian animator Yuri Norstein
Norstein has created his poetic films working in team with his wife Francheska Yarbusova
 and cameraman Alexander Zukovsky. In order to achieve the artistic effect they desired, 
they invented a new animation technique involving painting on multiple layers of glass.


  1. You posted one of my all time favorite works. So exquisite.

  2. Fabulous, how do you find such great things?

  3. Amy and Deborah, I am glad you like it. In fact, I first saw Norstein's animations about 25 years ago in a small cineclub in Milan, and reminisced about them ever since. Finally last year an animator friend showed me the dvd version of Hedgehog in the fog, and I am pleased to say that I was not disappointed!
