The reference work on contemporary Swiss animated film now available as e-book

BENTELI’s first e-book has a lot to offer: Christian Gasser’s representative reference work on contemporary Swiss animated film is now being released in digital form with sequences from the discussed movies and lots of additional multimedia material. The e-book takes full advantage of the possibilities offered by new multimedia, lending motion to the stills from the films mentioned in the text and adding interactive extras to the essays, portraits and interviews. A film by each of the film-makers, who all make extensive comments, is embedded in the e-book and can be viewed right on your e-reader. The addition of twenty films – three in excerpts – also makes a best-of compilation of Swiss animation film from the past 20 years.

Coupled with the extensive texts and films, numerous visuals, some in the form of slide shows, and other extras exemplify the current trends and look at what’s to come in the future. At the center of are conversations with 20 film-makers who are representative of the variety and uniqueness of Swiss animated film.
