As the role of hero Wolf, "The Sun Rid on Heaven," tells actor Vilis Daudzins of work, it's a challenge to make an animated movie for every actor. "It's always exciting to make a movie, when you say the role, you're a little bit more free than on the stage, you do not see, on the other hand, the responsibility is much greater because everything that his body did and what the viewer could read, can hear, "says the actor.
As can be seen in the behind-the-scenes movie, a sound recording studio lowers the vibration of movie characters seeking the right loud intonation and mood, sometimes even through physical exercises, if it's a character in the movie.
A total of about 50 people participated in film production, working on screenplays, painting, painting, moving and shooting every four years. The first actor's music actors were held at the very beginning of the movie when actors told about so-called "black texts" so animators could draw images and gestures, facial expressions, and imitate the high text that says each image. After all the characters are drawn, the actors have verified the actual text, but looking at the drawings, so that the images displayed exactly match the displayed animation. True, sometimes the first voice record was so good that it did not have to be rewritten – it happened in the case of the "Sunshine Driving in the Sky" with a great defector, the forest bandit Wolf, who was buried on the screen in the voice of Viļņa Daudziņa.
"The sun has gone to heaven," the story begins when the girl of the Sun and the Moon hides in the honey, and desperate parents call on a man to take the baby. Nabasherman passes around the sword and along with the Girl and the Bride goes on a journey to face mosquitos and lungs and their fears and laziness. Helpers are given only three days: if at that time the daughter of the Sun will not be found, they will lose strength and become an ordinary girl. The journey of dangers and adventures, which teaches everything not only are brave and resourceful, but also useful. The Latvian animated classic Rose Stieb's film is based on folk motifs, Juris Kaukulis and The Young Midsummer Orchestra are fighting for their violent events.
