Une Mission Ephémère is a 1993 animation directed by Polish animator PIOTR KAMLER with music composed by BERNARD PARMEGIANI. This was PIOTR KAMLER‘s final work from nine other short animations which combined techniques of animation, stop-motion, and early CGI and created during the 1960s, 1970s and early 1990s. The film won Best Animation at major animation festivals including Marly Le Roy in 1994, Annecy 1993, Banff (Canada) 1993 and Zagreb in 1994.
PIOTR KAMLER was born in Warsaw in 1936. He is a graduate of the Warsaw Academy of Fine Art. In 1959 he went to Paris to continue his art studies. It was there that he came into contact with Research Department at ORTF (directed by PIERRE SCHAEFFER) and began to collaborate with “concrete” musicians such as IANNIS XENAKIS on experimental shorts (musical abstract films and “fables”). The ORTF Research Department which was later taken over by INA, was a hothouse for talent, enabling diverse artists to carry out a large number of bold and innovative personal projects.
