Well-known Russian Animator Anatoli Savchenko Passes Away

Famous Russian animator Anatoli Savchenko has died, aged 87, in Moscow.


A graduate of the All-Union Institute of Cinema (1953), the artist created a whole gallery of images of popular animated characters for dozens of children’s favourite animations, among them Kid and Carlson, Return of the Prodigal Parrot, Vovka in the Far Away Land, The Nutcracker, and Moydodyr.


Savchenko invented his own method of the background work by scratching the picture contours in the grounded Whatman paper. The master’s awards included prizes of Annesa Animation Film Festival and the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. In the late 1990s the artist left the Soyuzmulfilm studio and became engaged in illustration of children's books.
