Congratulations to the makers of the animated short "Home Sweet Home". The short animation film has been selected for the animation category of The London International Student Film Festival, taking place at the Close Up Film Centre in Shoreditch on Thursday 11th April at 6pm. The LISFF is an annual film festival that takes place in London, and aims to provide a showcase for new filmmakers’ work.
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, this film was a collaboration between three departments: Animation, 3D VFX, and Compositing, in which all of our students pulled together to deliver a strong piece of work, showing what can be achieved when students collaborate successfully on group projects.
