House of Dreamy Creatures Wins Award in Film Festival
Watching finalist screening of films.
Receiving awards, filmmakers: Brittany, Mitchell, Cole, Edward and Cassie.
The House of Dreamy Creatures stop motion animation created by the students in my summer animation workshop last year won Best Original Literary in the CEEF ePIC Film Festival last night. The movie was also nominated for:
and Best Animation
This short film was nominated for more awards than any other film in the festival. It was a great honor for the children. The experience of making a stop motion movie taught the students a lot about expressing themselves creatively and about working collaboratively in a team.
