Moving Elements focuses on the creative processes that lead to making art. A car passes through all the stages of creative art process and becomes part of art works, as well as a player in abstract processes of creating. The film is meant as a tribute to filmmakers and films made in the golden age of the Zagreb School of Animation. To a certain extent it uses a visual language characteristic of the period – the 1960s and the 1970s.
