PAVEL SOUKUP

*1990 in Prague

 

Pavel was not one of those children that were forbidden to watch horror movies on TV. Actually he grew up with these kinds of movies, ever since he was surrounded by old VHS cassettes, mostly stolen from dubbing studios. Even in early age he changed many character roles, supported by self made costumes, his strange looking facial expressions were good, planned pieces of choreography. While growing older (with the help of a psychologist) he found that acting was not his calling, and that filmmaking would be more suitable. He has chosen the easy way and started to study the lonely field of animation at UMPRUM. After he learned all the important things from those little moving characters, he started to apply all his knowledge to real living actors. These days he is occupied with directing and editing short animated and feature films, advertisements and videos.
