My student's film "Rubbish Express" won Best Animation in the 12-18 year old category at the Blackrock Animation Film Festival last weekend.
This award is a well deserved acknowledgement of the student's hard work and ingenuity, and I hope after watching the film you think so too.
"Strange little green men have come up with a novel solution to their rubbish problem
- Dump it on Earth!"
Rubbish Express was created over 5 days in April, by Adam Cantwell-Xenopoulos, Sasha Lorigan, Philippe Lorigan, Sean McInerney, April Mooney, Amber Mooney and Ruby McAlister.
It was one of four films produced during a 2 week long animated film workshop, hosted by myself along with Pádraig Fagan and Carol Freeman, featuring original music by Chris McLoughlin. You can find all four films here, as well as a behind the scenes showing how the students animated the films.
This workshop was an initiative of the PURE Project, along with Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council.
Also, if you are curious, we have recently completed four more environmental workshop films, during the 2nd Annual PURE Wicked Animation Film School. You can find those films here.
Below you can see some photograph's showing the workshop in full swing
Enjoy! And thanks for reading.
