FACTS

Little from the Fish Shop was filmed with traditional Czech puppets. The  stop-motion animation technique combined with modern digital (CG) animation, It is the typical “roughness” or “graininess” of the puppet animation paired with the feel of reality of the scenery that helps us evoke the authentic atmosphere of a harbour district. Positively crucial for the film are the music track and the sound effects track.

The powerful music themes and foley effects and vocal effects so characteristic of individual characters infuse the film with a unique emotional charge creating yet another dramaturgical element that influences the action and moves it forward. The minimal voice-over establishes and unfolds the storyline balancing emotions the film is abundant with.
