Animated short “Venus of Jale” was inspired by sculptures by Ljubodrag Janković Jale, recognized Serbian fine artists, former professor of the Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade. Since the 50’s he is engaged in work on different art forms, including drawing, painting, engraving and sculpting. His sculptures display figures of women. These figures have miraculous appeal, dignity and beauty, in a form which isn’t realistic, but simple and reduced into a composition of harmonic shapes in space. The style and simplicity of forms creates a monumental impression, which is unexpected for such small sculptures. These sculptures have richness of various influences, which seem to wrap all human experience in sculptural representation of the female body, from Paleolithic art, Archaic art, Renaissance, Picasso, More, Slavic native art, all collected into authentic sculptural handwriting. For the purpose of the project “Venus of Jale”, the author’s sculptures are transferred into the media of 3D animation, with aim to copperhand this modeling method of animation and to explore the relation between sculpture and 3D graphics, their similarities, differences and influences.

Who are we, where are we, where do we go? Man’s subjective feeling about what is happening to him on his way home, often differs in other person’s perception, in this case his wife. The film describes his journey which is happening to all of us. Film’s simple visual identity, which is very raw at some moments, along with sound and effects which absolutely follow the picture in presentation manner, influence that this drama from our hero’s life is real and not caricatured. Honey, I’am home could easily be continued because real drama in every man’s life is created, still, by his partner. We could just imagine what her answer was…
Ko smo, gde smo, kuda idemo? Subjektivan osećaj čoveka o tome šta mu sve dešava u povratku svom domu, veoma često se razlikuje od percepcije druge osobe, u ovom slučaju njegove žene. Film govori o tom putovanju koje se svima nama dešava. Jednostavan vizualni identitet filma, koji je na momente veoma sirov, uz ton i efekte koji apsolutno prate sliku u načinu prezentacije utiču da cela ova drama iz života našeg junaka bude realna a ne iskarikirana. Honey, I am home može veoma lako da ima nastavak jer pravu dramu u životu svakog muškarca, ipak, stvara njegova partnerka. A možemo naslutiti šta mu je ona odgovorila…
