We were joined by Ian Mackinnon from Mackinnon and Saunders who talked the crowd through the making of the now emblematic MAF award which the studio designed and fabricated.
The festival awards will return with prizes presented for the best films in the Short Film, Student Film and Commissioned Film categories. As well as rewarding these films we announced our first set of industry excellence awards highlighting the work of individuals working behind the scenes on commissioned animation productions. The first set of awards will be delivered to individual artists buy paxil demonstrating excellence in storyboarding, writing and for character animation.
Festival Co-director Steve Henderson said: “Film festivals are the perfect platform for highlighting the magnificent work done in all areas of animation, so we thought we would use the platform to highlight the individual practitioners within the industry, working hard on television series and commissioned work.”
