Two animations that I directed last school year won awards in The International Student Media Festival 2008.
Peace Thoughts won Judges Favorite. This animation was created by a first grade class. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJ19kniuW1M
Claymation Situation by Cole Takara, Edward Slee and Cassie Woodard won Excellence in Media. This animation also won Best Animation in the CEEF Epic Film Festival in 2008. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1n8oKqnG2a0
The film festival will be held in Florida from November 5 to 8th and both animations will be in the festival screening. The children's school, Stevens Creek Elementary School, will receive a trophy and each child will get a medal and certificate.
