Jan Svankmajer was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1934.  He began making short films in 1964.  He has also exhibited drawings, collages, and sculpture, many of which were produced during the ‘70’s when he was banned from film making by the communist government.  He has been a member of the Prague Surrealist Group since 1969.  His stop-motion technique brings the inanimate to life creating an eerie yet delightful world.  His films are filled with texture and a swinging pendulum of light and shadow.  He freely mixes people, puppets, food, and worn elements of the industrial age to create visions found only in your dreams and imagination.

  1. I would like to introduce myself as an actor and singer in Connecticut. I am looking for more work in the industry as I am now retiring from life as a band, chorus, pit, and drama assistant director, accompanist, vocal coach, church musician and at your beacon call taxi driver. I am not restricted to larger parts but will do extras, background, voice, commercial, and promotional work as well.

    If there is anything that I can help you with or parts that fit my profile please contact me.

    If you would like more personal information please let me know.

    Thanks for your time and consideration.

    Sincerely,
    Lynn Keyes 203-885-2246
