Yesterday The External World won the Grand Prix at the "18. Internationales Trickfilm-Festival Stuttgart". Unfortunately David couldn't be there so I had the honor to accept the award 🙂 Thanks to the jury and the whole ITFS 2011 crew who did an amazing job.
The Gruffalo won the SPECIAL PRIZE, The 2010 Best of Fest Award, at the 27th Annual Chicago International Children's Film Festival. Furthermore it won the 2nd Prize in the category ADULT JURY PRIZE â€“ ANIMATED SHORT.
Wow I can't believe it ... two films I worked on won at Ottawa. First David O'Reilly wrote me an e-mail that we won the 'The 2010 Nelvana GRAND PRIZE for Best Independent Short Animation' with 'The External World'. And when I took a closer look at the other winner I realized that "The Gruffalo' won 'The 2010 Best Television Animation Made for Children' ... if only every morning would start this way 😉
