Four short commercials that Norshteyn did from 1994-1995 for the company "Russian Sugar".

Only the first one is available on Youtube, but all 4 of them can be seen here.

A better-quality version of just the first one can be viewed here.

This was Norshteyn's first released work since 1979, and he says that the money from doing the commercials "fed him for a whole year" and allowed him to continue working on his still-unreleased feature film The Overcoat, which he'd started on in 1981. The commercials won him the "Breakthrough Prize" at the Open Russian Festival of Animated Film. The company was reportedly pleased with them, but they went bankrupt the following year, so the commercials got very little airtime.
