• Butlins Animation Competition Winners Announced!

    Earlier this year Animate It! teamed up with Butlins to create an exciting new Shaun the Sheep-inspired animation competition for young film makers! The competition closed at the start of the month and Golly, the creator of Shaun’s TV series, was tasked with judging the entries.

    He was blown away by the standard of the entries, but after much deliberation he chose Ella’s “Pancake Trouble” as his favourite. “I love Ella’s film.” he said “It’s a well-rounded, simple story which is also really funny”


    Ella, aged 12 from East Sussex, will receive the money-can’t-buy prize of a family day at Aardman in bristol, including a model-making workshop with one of Aardman’s top model-makers, a private screening in the Aardman cinema and a trip to the fantastic Animate It! exhibition at At-Bristol

    The 5 lucky runners will each receive an Animate It! kit, plus a selection of Aardman DVDs. You can see the runner-up animations by visiting the Butlins website!
