Animated Exeter has joined up with the Sharp Shotz Animation Competition to host the finals in Exeter at the Exeter Phoenix on Thursday, February 11.
Animation Exeter has teamed up with the Bristol-based competition for young people -and you’ve got just a week to get your animated film in.
The theme of the Sharp Shotz competition, which is open to 11 to 18 year olds, is to raise awareness of the consequences of drugs, gun and knife use, and the closing date is Sunday, December 21.
Susannah Shaw of Animated Exeter told D+CFilm: “I went to the premiere/awards ceremony in September of the last competition winners and was knocked out by the animation and the soundtracks
“I asked Nick Bentley from IDEAL, the charity that promote Sharp Shotz, if they would be interested in extending further into the South West and offered help through Animated Exeter. Once they felt they had enough resources to do this they came back to us and we promoted the exhibitions through the website and our schools network.”
Animated Exeter will host the finals at the Exeter Phoenix, with the jury including representatives from Aardman, and the winners will go on to make their film with expertise from Aardman Animations and depending on their location, get practical help from animation students at UWE Bristol, or University College Falmouth.
