Our students are wallowing in animation at Klik 2017. What’s not to like? The best internationally celebrated animation, great company, inspiring workshops, mingling with the industry – oh and Amsterdam of course!

Ivelina’s film “Silent London” has been chosen for the Independent Short Film competition at Exground Filmfest, and she has been asked to stay as a guest of the festival to present her film in November! Its an amazing opportunity, and well deserved. We love your films Ivelina – something tells me this is just the beginning…
Our new showreel has arrived – thanks for all your great work!
Right after graduating in 2012 from the Westminster Animation course, Dimitar Petrov developed the first animated series based on folktales from the Balkans, the Golden Apple. We are so happy that he made it happen!
Here is an interview about his project.
He also recently talked about it on Ted Talk.
The talk is in Bulgarian… Must get subtitles!
Natasza Cetner is already celebrating festival success with her graduation film! “Nero” has been nominated for the film of the month at Puerto Madero International Film Festival 2017 – I am sure this is just the beginning.
There was magic in the air last night! Congratulations to all our students for an amazing show at the Regent Street Cinema.
The films were phenomenal and it was wonderful to see so many names on the credits. You have all supported each other and we are certain will continue to support one another in the future.
Emotions ran high in the bar after the show, and it was great to hear how much you have enjoyed the course. We will miss you all, but we look forward to hearing all about your future successes too! Stay in touch!
Natasza Cetner, Cecilia Corzo and Maria Piva have all been offered places on the Animation MA at the Royal College of Art! You beat stiff competition for those places, and that’s not easy, but we know you all deserve the opportunity. Have fun – can’t wait to see what you do next!
Not only was our Shaun voted “Favourite Lecturer” at Westminster University last year, but he is also running extra workshops at the Regent Street Cinema on the weekends!
His three day workshops for University of Westminster Outreach, were a great success, and they made the most of the cinema venue. They filmed and projected animation, and the students performed with their animated characters, “its Winsor McCay and Gertie the Dinosaur but done in 2017 by 15 yr olds. We also did Harry Potter style moving portraits, animated letters like a dot matrix sign with the students in cinema seats instead of dots. Lots of pixellation.”
Our students acted as paid assistants – good teaching experience and great on a CV.
Keep checking in if you want to be part of the next Outreach programme.
Our students have had great success at the Athens Animfest 2017. Natasha, Jude, Ivelina and Constantinos have all had films for the festival this year – might be worth a trip to Athens!
