Award for Best Children Contribution at San Diego International Kids Film Festival, in USA

The Water Bearer have received an Award for Best Children Contribution in the Best Kids-MAde Film at the  San Diego International Kids Film Festival, in USA.

The film has been created in collaboration with the students of Twyford St Mary CE School for Tywford Waterwork Trust. Half of the animations have been created by students from key stage 1 up to year 6 in a three day workshop animation marathon . We kept a diary of the workshop here : https://twtanimation.wordpress.com/category/workshop/ and you can watch the making of below

Of course the film has then been composited, animated and finished by a professional crew, but I am glad the San Diego Film Festival has recognised the immense input from the kids. So this award is for all the students of Twyford St Mary CE School : well done and well deserved!
