Compote Collective is an animation production company made up of twenty artists in Sofia, Bulgaria. They do both commercial work and creative narrative pieces, the latter receiving support from the Bulgarian National Film Center and going on to feature in festivals. In 2015, Compote Collective put together a series of six contemporary Bulgarian poems with accompanying animation called MARK & VERSE. The shorts in this series have a contemplative tempo combined with moments of wry humor, expressive human forms, and floating surrealistic creatures. MARK & VERSE is accompanied by six additional pieces from Compote Collective animators and composers. FATHER shows an impossible relationship between a child and a father in blue and gray toned landscapes rich with symbolism. ANNA BLUME is a journey of love and lust with a red gluttonous beast that uses material from Kurt Schwitter’s poem, “An Anna Blume”. Many thanks to Compote Collective, especially the kind help of Vessela Dantchev and Petya Zlatev. Total Run Time: 60 minutes.
