– Damian Nenow (2006)
Focus on fight. The dimension of fighting is irrelevant, as well as the ideology behind it. It does not matter whether two people are involved or millions. what remains are only scars – bloody traces, Paths of Hate. “Paths of Hate” is a short tale about the demons that slumber deep in the human soul and have the power to push people into the abyss of blind hate, fury and rage. Falling into that abyss inevitably leads to downright destruction and extinction.
“Paths of Hate” is a film filled with spectacular and Visuallyattractive scenes of aerial fight scenes. In its construction, particular narration and, most of all, in its innovative and technically-advanced stylization of the images based on 3D graphics, it resembles an action comic book put in motion. Having talked to Tomek Baginski I tried to set the world of “Paths of Hate” in a highly stylized artistic convention. In 2006 the first trailer was produced, it was at the same time a technology test. Comic-book stylization hit the nail on the head. I decided that the drawing-like line ideally fits the surreal duel scenes and gives the film freshness and distinguishes it from among photo-realistic 3D animations.
