"Draw" & "Joe" at Forest Film Fest 27 Feb

Congratulations to the makers of Joe and Draw, which have both been accepted into their first film festival - the Forest Film Club Festival in East London.

The event takes place at The Birds in Leytonstone, East London, on Thursday 27th February 2020. You can find their official page here.

We'll be going along to cheer on our talented film-makers, and we encourage all our students to attend. You can buy tickets for just £4 at Event Brite.

"Joe"
"Joe" is a short film directed by Callum Reeve, produced by Aidan Lonergan, and completed as part of the third year animation Module PR6001,  a Studio Project worth 60 Credits.

In this module our animation and VFX students join forces to produce a visual effects (VFX) project, with three months to take the project from initial pitch to final render.

The lead animator was Jack Thompson, and cinematography was by Clement Gharini. The 3D VFX Lead was Alfie Mitchell, and the Compositing Lead was George Randall.

"Draw"
"Draw" is a short film directed by third year animation student Martin Kamminga, and - like "Joe" - was completed as part of the third year animation Module PR6001.

Draw was produced by Conway Dobbs, and the lead animator was Maciej Osuch - who in 2019 directed the award-winning short Golden Acorn.  The 3D VFX Lead was Jake Newton and the 2D VFX Lead was Christopher Fernandes.
