Blog


Welcome to my new site!  Welcome to my new blog!  It is so lovely having you here!

I used to post my news on Blogger, where I settled and created a cosy blog about my animation, work in progress,  inspiration  and  other treasure.  I needed a new website and it felt right to include a blog.  I brought a few old posts with me to keep the continuity.  It is a real fresh start and I am truly excited about it!

I am putting together a new website and I thought of adding some client testimonials.  I wish I had done this already.  I got some most beautiful responses:

‘I have worked with Marta Mackova on several occasions. I initially commissioned her to create  a short animation for my theatre production ‘RoadKill’ which featured the incredibly difficult subject matter of  a young girl being raped from her own perspective. This was a seminal moment in the production, and audiences all over the world  (London, Paris, Chicago, NY) never failed to be shocked, moved and unbelievably affected by it. Marta created work which was sensitive, inventive, deeply empathetic to the demands I placed on her. She has since created my company logo and a cover for a cd of music I produced. Each time her work has had an authentic originality, charm, and sensitivity to the subject it depicts. I love working with Marta.’
