Creators of ‘Mavka. The Forest Song’ animated film, Animagrad animation studio and FILM.UA Group, announced the new aspect of splendid cooperation with Kateryna Kukhar, prima ballerina of the National Opera of Ukraine, People's Artist of Ukraine, who performs many famous ballet parts, notably a part of Mavka in a classic ballet ‘The Forest Song’. Now in a single person, a theatrical and animated Mavka would unite: Kateryna will be a prototype of the character of the animated film, that is why a Warden of the Forest would surprise and enchant everyone with majesty and grace of her movements. Kukhar would be shot for a video reference material, based on which artists shall animate Mavka. This is the first case for Ukrainian animation, when a real ballet artist is involved into creation of movements for animated film’s characters.
