Finally! "George the Hedgehog" has recently won two very important prizes at huge international festivals! The Spirit Award at Brooklyn Film Festival in New York, US and the GRAND PRIX at the biggest Asian animated festival SICAF in Korea!!!

After another screening in US, at the Chicago Internation Film Festival, I found this terrific review of GEORGE THE HEDGEHOG - you can read it HERE.

Finally! George the Hedgehog appeared in stores in three versions: the regular 1-disc version, the collectors 2-dvd edition and Bluray version (consisting of 2 discs as well). The movie is avalilable with English subtitles. The limited collectors edition was additionally packed with over 120 minutes of extras including my older short films: "Headless", "Mouse" and "Penguin".

 "George the Hedgehog" is being currently screened in all big Polish theaters! Reviews are fantastic, however lots of viewers seemes to be offended by the film - well, the movie wasn't meant to please all people.

In the meantime take a look at the third commercial starring popular Heart and Brain. I supervised animation on this one as well. Again, the commercial was produced in Human Ark Studio.

Finally... "George the Hedgehog" was given an official premiere date: March,11th 2011! Soon we're releasing a new (final) trailer of the movie and after that a new comic book, a music video, toys and other surprises! Stay tuned!
