Two Slovak visual artists and animators – Veronika Obertová and Michaela Čopíková – have liked the traditional disciplines since their childhoods – coloured pencils, plasticine and paper. Their production includes short films, videoclips, visual arts, design and fashion.
In their own words, two young visual artists and animators, Michaela Čopíková and Veronika Obertová established the Ové Pictures brand so that they could do what they like doing most. From their short films, music videos, illustrations, pictures and textile designs it is obvious that the first impulse in their work was great joy. They share this joy through drawing, collage, computer graphics and last, but not least animation, within which all these techniques are used and combined.
Michaela Čopíková, who graduated from the Academy of Performing Arts, Bratislava and Veronika Obertová, who graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts and Design, gained their experience not only in Bratislava, but also at universities abroad. They have attended many film festivals and enforced their poetics in pieceworks as well. So far they have achieved the greatest success with their short films About Socks and Love (2008), Viliam (2009) and Dust and Glitter (2011).
The sense of a visual metaphor is obvious in Michaela Čopíková's About Socks and Love, by means of which she suggests the downsides of a relationship between a woman and a man via a bag full of socks. Veronika Obertová's Viliam is about an introverted boy who started drawing and created his own world by means of a pencil. She imaginatively works with a contrast between drawing and cutout animation. The first film made by Ové Pictures is Dust and Glitter. It is an eleven-minute film bringing together drawing and computer animation and is inspired by San Francisco and its residents. Dust and Glitter was awarded a prize at the AniMazSpot festival in Burbank.
These as well as other films made by Ové Pictures will be introduced by Veronika Obertová
