Important Czech experimental filmmaker, documentarian, and one of the founders of Czech videoart. He studied documentary film at FAMU in the 1970s, and has been engaged in artistic experimentation with film material since the late ‘60s. In particular, he hand-painted or scratched the frames of 16mm film, or created collages. Skala has directed nearly 150 documentary and instructional films, and has also directed or written hundreds of radio plays and programmes. At the 1993 Deutscher Videokunstpreis in Karlsruhe, his work was included among 50 of the most important videoart projects from around the world.
