It’s not easy to pigeonhole the film “ Introduction to Intuition” as pertaining to this or the next rubrique. A big fragment of the composer’s interview is included, still it’s more like the music (and imagery; as the visual images’ “material counterparts”, that is, objects or “things” were suggested or even provided, for the greater part, by the composer himself) “speaks for itself”, as “...an interview with the East and the West” (to restate in a different way the name of one M. Chekalin’s pieces).
That is to say, this film claimes to appear just a “live-action” one, still its aesthetics seriously gravitates towards the mode of video-art... while other video projects that made use of M. Chekalin’s music following this very aesthetics fall into the realm of “animation” films.
As, for instance, is the case with “The Dissonata”, the first national full-lenght “animation” film which takes up the video-art aesthetics, in the proper sense of this trendy word.

“The Origin of Species” is Nica Prize Laureate in animated cartoons nomination.
This animated cartoon humorously illustrates Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution; each one of its seven instalments presents a different story with its own subject-matter.

Welcome to the XXIst Century”. International project – worldwide message, an “animation” film (in 7 instalments, the pilot-versy).
Producer Helena Prorokova

The seven days of Creation are counted out in reverse, toward that primal moment, when “the Big Bang”, a nuclear one this time, reverses the Cosmic order back to the primordial Chaos.
The visual imagery are based upon famous paintures of the XXth century, from the impressionists to Dali and Rauschenbach; each instalment – “a day” – is “animated” by different animator.

These works in animated cartoons genre are polystylistic and widely vary as to their emotional colouring, ranging from humouristic to tragic. They concur, however, in that point that their “story” is told not by verbal means but by audio-visual one; the music as “a story-teller” and “a message-giver” ranks on a par with visual imagery.
