Cassandra's Head is a SF short story written by Marek Baraniecki in early '80s. It's a story about a man (Teodor Hornic) who survived a nuclear war and desperately tries to locate and disable armed warheads that are still a threat. But his mind is obsessed by the mystic Cassandra that is believed to have a power to destroy the whole life on the planet. Is the Cassandra the thing that it is supposed to be or maybe something totally different?
The story was very well received and got many literature awards back in the day. It's fantastic material for a SF film that we hope to make some day, but in the meanwhile we decided to make a short animated film based on a single motive from the story. We want to make a stop-motion animated film with puppet, real sets and props. We are going to combine it with CG effects, matte painting and all the technology that allows to make good film with lower costs.
