• Winners of the My Crayola Movie Competition Announced!

    It’s been a long time coming but we’re excited to finally announce the winners of the My Crayola Movie competition! We had some outstanding entries and as such the judging process was quite tricky! The panel of judges included animation experts and our friends from Crayola and ODEON who, after careful consideration, chose the following winners:

    Winner

    My Pet Dinosaur by Charlotte Jones

    We loved this animation which combines beautiful illustrations with an imaginative story centered around a rather unusual pet. Smooth animation, a sweet soundtrack and lovely narrative made Charlotte’s animation stand out, and the judges agreed, saying “A very ambitious and sophisticated animation. A worthy winner!”

    Runners Up 

    There’s some awesome talent on show in the creations of our runners-up – here’s what the judges had to say…

    The Legend of the Trees by Zoe Fisher

    “A simple idea well executed. Lovely clear voiceover and animation and a really funny story.”

    The Lonely Alien by Emma Poppleton

    “Beautifully detailed illustration and a very clear animation style coupled with an engaging story (with a twist) make this a lovely short film.”

    King Charles’s Excellent Plan by Elliot Barraclough

    “Great drawings and energy! Fantastic ‘bang bang bang’ sound fx and real attention to detail in the drawings. A Beauty!”

    The Journey Home by Sophie Reid

    “A very sweet animation with lots of lovely sounds and good, simple experiments with animation.”

    Charlotte wins a private screening for her and 20 family members and friends at her local ODEON cinema where they’ll see her fabulous My Crayola Movie on the big screen and then watch How to Train Your Dragon 2!  She also wins a bumper pack of Crayola goodies, a family ticket to  ODEON Cinemas the Animate It! exhibition at At-Bristol. Charlotte’s winning film will also be screened at selected ODEON Kids performances across the UK and Ireland.

    The four runners up will each win a free code to download the Animate It! software, a bundle of Crayola goodies and a family ticket to ODEON Cinemas. We’ll be sharing some snaps of Charlotte’s special day on the site soon…

    Well done to Charlotte and all the runners up!
