A film which aims to convey the emotional state of a youngster being lost at the fairground by Karolina Glusiec has been shortlisted for the Royal Television Society Student Television Awards.
Karolina’s film Carousel Rodeo is inspired by the song, Karuzele Skutery Rodeo (Carousel Scooters Rodeo), about a young boy’s adventure in a fairground.
Karolina, studying digital animation at University College Falmouth, said: ‘I really wanted to show the emotion of the song and translate it into the language of film through animation.
‘I wanted to show how a child feels when lost in a fairground.’
And she does it through her own unique style, using bold black and white design and a striking animation technique, which took her six months while she was an exchange student at University College Falmouth.
The film has already won Best Animation and Audience Award at the Off Jak Goraco Independent Film Festival in Lodz, Poland. And it took second place at the 10th Animated Exeter Festival this year in the Best of the West category.
Andy Wyatt, course leader at University College Falmouth, said: ‘This is an incredible achievement for Karolina, and we are absolutely thrilled for her.
‘Karolina had very little animation experience eight months ago, and worked incredibly hard to master new skills and techniques to create her film.
The winners will be announced on Friday, May 8 at the Barbican Centre in London.
