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.
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!
Norbert Garab’s graduation film has been selected for screening on “Colorama – A Selection of Animation Shorts“. Sounds like a great evening! The event will be at Cafe 1001 (Brick Lane, London E1) on Wednesday, November 2nd from 7pm.
Simona Mehandzhieva’s film Green is doing the festival circuit – its showing at four so far:
– Cartoon Club Festival Internazionale del Cinema d’Animazione Fumetto e Games
– ANNY – Animation Nights in New York
– Second Asia International (Wenzhou) Youth Short – Film Exhibition
– International Environmental Film Festival (FICMA Barcelona)
We loved your film Simona – glad you get to share it with the world!
