Bulgarian animation aims to mix folklore and modern art

golden apple series

The Bulgarian Studio Zmei (an old word in Bulgarian equivalent to dragon) has set itself an ambitious task: combine Bulgarian legends and myths with a modern twist to produce an epic animated series aimed at both Bulgaria and the word. The series will be called “The Golden Apple”, and the name comes from Bulgarian folk tales. What we love about this project is that it serves and a great example how tradition, culture and modern art can mix quite well together. The trailer has just been released and the studio hopes it will generate enough attention internationally to attract investment and make the project happen. If you ask us, this is exactly the type of great initiative that should be supported. It would also serve as a great way to learn more about Bulgarian culture in a fun, modern way for the whole family. We would love to make it happen and the studio needs your help to spread the trailer far and wide.

You can find them on Twitter and Facebook too.

Enjoy the trailer and if you have friends who would be interested, you can share it with them:
