I've had some great news over the past few weeks from several friends, so here I would like to share the excitement, spread the good news for those of you not yet aware of it, and to congratulate each of them...
Jessica Cope has been nominated for a BAFTA Scotland New Talent Award in the Animation category on Thursday for her graduation film The Owl House.
Johanna Wagner's Masters degree film The Inner Shape (for which I created a Paint on Glass animation sequence) was also nominated for a BAFTA Scotland New Talent Award, but in the Factual category.
And finally, Lora Jensen (whose film I scanned two years ago) worked on This Way Up directed by Smith & Foulkes at Nexus Productions in London. This Way Up was nominated for an OSCAR in the Short Film (Animated) category, but lost out on Sunday to La Maison en Petits Cubes.
Well done to each of you for your achievements so far, and thanks for all the experiences you each gave me during our time together at eca.
UPDATE (21 March 2009):
Jess lost out in the BAFTA's Animation category to Julia McLean's The Finger Trap.
Johanna won the BAFTA's Factual category.
