Watch “Maiden Swifter Than Horses”: Serbian Animated Short Film Inspired By The Fantasy Tale

Pursuit of beauty is based on the old tale…

Belgrade-based Go Hektik Studio designed a 4′ 2D animated short that tells a universal story of ideal beauty. The film is going to be submitted to different regional and European animation festivals. This grand adventure about a pursuit of beauty is based on the old Serbian national tale. However, it is not illustrated with national characteristics as expected from this type of animated short film, but in a very poetic fairytale-style. Maiden Swifter than Horses was preserved from oblivion almost two centuries ago.

A beautiful girl lives in a deep forest. All men desire to marry her, but she sets a number of obstacles they should overcome. However, her freedom is in peril when a handsome and strong-willed king appears. This fantasy tale is the universal story of ideal beauty and urge to find one.

The 2D animation format was selected for its perfect fit to the fairytale world. The girl is the main character of this short animated movie. She sets a number of obstacles for all men who desire to have her for a wife. Her freedom is in peril when a handsome and strong-willed king appears. The voice of a storyteller acts as our narrative guide.

This particular story was chosen because of its artistic value and strong visual effect. Studio wanted the universal mood of the story to move people: the main goal was to breathe new life into Slavic mythology and to make it more visible to the wider audience.
