Home Sweet Home is a short film about friendship and family, in which a group of discarded sweets must try to get back to their sweet shop home.

Directed by 3rd year undergraduate animator Maria Robertson and produced by Maddison Gould, this film was a collaboration between three departments: Animation, 3D VFX, and Compositing, in which all our students pulled together to deliver a strong piece of work, showing what can be done when students collaborate successfully on group projects.
