DARDANELE STUDIO www.dardanele.com


We are a team of creative people. We have been continuously sketching, drawing, animating and programming for the past 10 years and if you think that we are not doing anything at the moment then we must be thinking about a new project right now.

We are passionate about 2D animation, especially character animation.

We take on various projects in which animation is of key importance. Creating for kids is what we like the most: animated short films, educational series, video clips and applications – we always commit one hundred percent to everything we do. We like having a feeling that our project is not only prepared down to the last detail but that it is also useful and enjoyed by kids who have a lot of fun while learning.


Ewa Frączekewa-warsztaty-dla-dzieci2


She graduated from the Industrial Forms Department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow. She draws and animates and does a whole bunch of other useful things, too. She is a founder of Dardanele Studio where she creates illustrations and animations as part of her daily work.

Irina Goncharikirina-warsztaty-dla-dzieci2

She graduated from the department of journalism at the Belarusian State University in Minsk. Everyday in her work she creates fairytale worlds where strange, sometimes funny and at other times scary events take place. She writes scripts and comes up with new characters which are later brought to life by animators.



We will invite children to play animated studio and work on a film together.

Our workshops will show how the process of creating an animated film looks like in a nutshell.

Children will get to know the secrets of animation making step by step, starting from an idea up to a completed film.

During workshops they will discover who really makes animated films: a director, scriptwriter, illustrator, animator, sound producer, editor and will also find out what a script, storyboard, frame, shot and editing are.

Working together on a film develops creativity, teaches how to work in a team and will quite possibly discover new talents or arouse passion to make animated films.
