We’re delighted to announce the winner and runners up from our animation competition – as chosen by our creative partner Aardman Animations!
Entrants were asked to create a short animated film in any format from CGI to stop-motion animation on the theme of ‘Success against the odds’. The Aardman team then judged entries considering creativity, technical competency and how well the animation fits with the given theme.
And the winner is…
Matt’s animation, ‘Against all odds’ tells the story of a man who is determined to become a Paralympian in the London 2012 games – and all in only 10 seconds!
The award-winning team at Aardman Animations described Matt’s animation as “a well-crafted idea that worked well in 10 seconds with a strong before and after”, and especially liked “the fact that you could see the point where our hero decides he can do more”.
Matt has won a personal behind-the-scenes tour at Aardman’s studios in Bristol for himself and a friend including an animation workshop, and artwork signed by co-founder Peter Lord.
Aardman Animations commented on how impressed they were by the ambition and effort that went into all the films, and selected five more of their favourites as the runners up.
Runners up are:
Congratulations to Matt and all of the runners up! Check back soon for photos from Matt’s behind the scenes tour and animation tips from Aardman.
