CGI and Computer animation generally aim to produce the most polished and aesthetically pleasing results for the viewer, for obvious reasons. Enter Ugly, an experimental animated short that seemingly defies all rules and conventions of traditional animation, directed and produced by Russian-born filmmaker Nikita Diakur.
Exhibiting unique visuals and art direction bordering on the avant-garde, “Ugly” tells the story of a Native American chief and an ugly cat trying to find peace in a harsh environment. Having successfully received crowdfunding, the now finished short is about to hit this year’s festival circuit before its public release, starting with the prestigious Animafest Zagreb.
We had the chance to talk to Nikita about ‘Ugly’, the creative vision behind it and the experimental approach his team took in animating.

We got the chance to talk to award winning animator and director Richard Bazley about his latest movie, his career at Disney and his creative vision. His current project "Predawn" is crowd funded and all proceeds go towards homeless charities. RebusFarm really liked the idea and decided to support his altruistic endeavors. We'd be happy if our users take similar action and donate to his Indiegogo campaign.
