A Quote by Jan Svankmajer

I am not interested in animated film in its totality. I am only interested in the technical aspect of the craft in relation to what I want to express – and technique is the crucial medium through which I can endow real objects with a magical power of their own. This is how magic becomes part of daily life, invading daily life, magic enters into quite ordinary contact with mundane things. The normal contact that people are accustomed to suddenly acquires a different dimension, one that makes reality appear doubtful.
