The project was initiated by Soyuzmultfilm director Akop Kirakosyan (Акоп Киракосян), who invited Shemyakin to the project; the idea of doing a film about E. T. A. Hoffmann's stories was Shemyakin's. Work began in 2001. It is the biggest project that the Soyuzmultfilm studio has worked on since the collapse of the Soviet Union. The 22 puppets which were used in the first 20 minutes of the film were brought to the November screening. Each puppet took no less than a month to make. Actual filming for the pilot began in late 2005, and the first 13 minutes were screened in late November 2005. The full film will have over 150 puppets, some of which will appear on the screen for only a few seconds. The spring of 2008 will be devoted to creating these puppets, and the actual filming period for the rest of the film will begin in the summer. In November 2008, Shemyakin mentioned that he will be coming to Moscow to again work on the film “in a few months”. A video report from September 1, 2010 showed that work was still ongoing. In a September 6, 2010 interview, Shemyakin said that if funding were given, the film would be finished in a year and a half. However, as of January 2011, the film crew were either not being paid at all (as during one 6-month period) or being paid very little, so progress was very slow. On June 3, 2011, Soyuzmultdesign published an official booklet for the upcoming film, which says that preparation for shooting the second and final part of the film began on March 3, 2011, and that the final 90-minute film would be released in May 2014. Also, the official English name was revealed to be Hoffmaniada. In July 23, 2013, it was reported that the film is scheduled to be released in 2015. In December 2013, Shemyakin said in an interview that the government had allocated no funding and the film was continuing to be worked on for practically no money. He expressed hope for completion in two to three years. In a detailed article about the film in April 2014, it was stated that two years of work are left.
