KinoManual is a small, independent audio-visual production house focused on experimenting with the moving image and sound. We mainly explore analogue animation techniques such as hand-drawn, cut-out or direct cinema. We enjoy manual contact with film and production process itself. KinoManual creates films and objects that correspond with a rich tradition of moving images, kinetic art and experimental cinema.


KinoManual to mała, niezależna manufaktura audio-wizualna, skupiona na eksperymentowaniu z ruchomym obrazem i dźwiękiem. Eksplorujemy głównie analogowe techniki poklatkowe: animacja rysunkowa, wycinanka, non camera. Lubimy kontakt tworzywem, którego używamy. KinoManual to filmy i obiekty, które chcą korespondować z bogatą tradycją ruchomych obrazów, sztuki kinetycznej i kina eksperymentalnego.
