About The Director:

Gediminas Šiaulys (b. 1979) is an animation director, visual artist and a co-founder of a studio PetPunk. The artist’s primary areas of interest lie in animation, tactile crafts and various experiments within these fields. This leads to authentic work that is visually and aesthetically challenging, yet peculiarly subtle. Šiaulys with PetPunk are the first Lithuanians to win the “Young Guns” prize by the Art Directors Club (NY). His works gained recognition by world’s leading art and design magazines, conferences, festivals and became a synonym for “New Eastern European Design”. Running Lights is Šiaulys’ first film
