Aaaand The Modelling News’ Oscar* goes too…“Paths of Hate” – a short animated film by Damian Nenow

An amazing short film we discovered “Paths of Hate” on the “interweb” (as my nana calls it) – well we thought that seeing it is Oscar Time – and that it is free advertising us putting it up here and that it is so cool we thought you all should see it. It isn’t modelling related but it does have a Spitfire and an Me 109 and their pilots duelling to their death (and past it literally) – we thought you would want to see it…


“Paths of Hate” is a short film filled with spectacular and attractive-looking air-to-air combat scenes. In both its structure and its innovative 3D graphics-based image stylizations, the short resembles a comic book come to life.

The Director – Damian Nenow, has directed three animated shorts, and each one was a very important step for the artist. “The Aim” (2005), created while Nenow was still in film school, was the first of his movies to receive an award. “The Great Escape” (2006) was screened at major international film festivals.

“Paths of Hate” was short-listed for an Academy Award nomination, received a Special Distinction at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival, was honoured at Comic-Con, the world’s largest comic and video game festival and received the Best of Show award at the 2011 SIGGRAPH festival.

Damian directs advertisements and is often involved in various special projects. He directed “City of Ruins,” a stereoscopic digital reconstruction of Warsaw destroyed in the course of World War II, which received the prestigious MuseAward in 2011.
And now for our feature presentation..

 *Before you ask - yes it wasn't made this year - but we only just saw it - so it is certainly OUR film of the year!
