A film that won hearts and awards, Oink (directed by Mascha Halberstad, based on the book of Tosca Menten) was the first stop-motion film to win a Gouden Kalf award for ‘Best Film’ at the Dutch Film Festival and the first Dutch animation film that got selected for the Berlinale. The awarded production design and decor of the film blew us away, so we over the moon to exhibit a part of this at Natlab!

The story of Oink starts when 9-year-old Babs receives a pig named Oink as a present from her grandfather, she convinces her parents to keep it under the condition that Oink follows a puppy training. But her parents are not the biggest threat to Oink because actually her grandfather is secretly taking part in the sausage competition organized by The Society for Meat Products from Fresh Pigs…

During the creation of Oink, director Mascha Halberstad and producer Marleen Slot built Holy Motion. Holy Motion is a 600 m2 animation studio where they animated Oink and where many more stop-motion films will be produced in the future.

So, if you’re a lover of stop-motion and you don’t want to miss out on the beauty and detail going into Oink, you should definitely take a look at Natlab within the upcoming weeks.

This exhibition is powered by Playgrounds. During The Art Department Eindhoven on 20+21 April ‘The Making of Oink’ expo will move to Het Klokgebouw and be visible during TAD. Want to be there? Get your tickets here.
