  • Description


    We are a team of two film production companies, one from Finland, one from Czechland, and together we are developing a museum of puppet animation currently based in Finland and a small animation studio in Prague, Czech Republic. We have been producing Finnish-Czech puppet animations here since 1991, so in 2018 we are celebrating our 27th anniversary!

    In 2016, we shot a new puppet animation called " Radio Dolores " It is a part of an international project- based on the real stories of Finnish volunteers in the Spanish Civil War fighting against fascism in the Thirties. During 2017-2019, we will build various exhibitions where the puppets and props will be presented for the wider audience.


    During spring- summer 2018, we will do a lot of development work for our two museum premises in Finland. We welcome museum enthusiastics, webspecialists, painters , handy-mans of all kind - as well as help with cooking, cleaning the premises and doing the shoppings if you have a driver´s license.

    Sometime we need also a helping hand to take care of our cats and a friendly dog. A lot of fun, animated film and exhibition knowlegde and a very romantic locations - first one in an old hospital in the middle of the Helsinki, another one in an ancient Baroque mansion of Teijo by the sea are our bonus for the volunteers, so please tell us more about your special skills and hope to meet you soon!

    Later in the autumn, we will also start to prepare our new animation film, The Last Matador, which is a political satire about Vladimir Putin who desperately wants to be a matador. A small street-thetre project is also in our plans with the same script.
