Congratulations to Timmergreens Primary School and Andrew Low, from Arbroath, whose intergalactic animation Tim and Sky's Adventure has won our special Into Film: Into Space & Home Again (12 and Under) award at the 2017 Into Film Awards.
Tim and Sky's Adventure, which you can watch above, is an adventure that sees two friends accidentally launch their school's experimental rocket, and find themselves visiting a mysterious red planet in the far reaches of space... a planet that isn't quite uninhabited!
Extremely strong narrative and technically brilliant. Total attention to detail. Good mix of claymation, animation, stopframe. Everything on screen added to the visual mix so particular praise for production design. Also injected humour. Felt very professional but still retaining the authenticity of being made by Year 6.Lisa Prime, Into Film Awards Judge
Having travelled all the way from Arbroath to London to attend the Awards, the team behind the winning film were understandably overjoyed by their win. "We're so excited to be here", said Logan, aged 10. "The fact that we won it makes it even better! Going up on stage was a bit scary at first but you got used to it."
The Into Film: Into Space & Home award was supported by UK Space Agency, and was presented by actor Freddie Fox, who gave his own passionate thoughts on the importance of film. "Film is the most immersive form of storytellingthat there is", said Freddie. "It requires so many fields of expertise skill to bring the final product potentially to a very wide audience... We need filmmakers and storytellers to be able to share their stories, to reach the widest audiences they can, to make sure people realise they are part of a global community, who all have the same ideals, like freedom of expression, innovation, creativity, inclusivity - and film I think is the main medium, certainly for a younger generation, that is going to spread that message."
Congratulations to Eleanor Webb-Thomas, from Shrewsbury, for her ingeniously low-key space film.
