We are proud to announce that The New York Festivals International Television & Film Awards has rewarded graduates of The Animation School the 2011 GOLD WORLD MEDAL, recognising their entry “In Sickness” as the world’s best in the Short Animation Film category.

This Short Film Animation Project has been created by students of The Animation School to gain vital work experience. They study more about scripting, on-set production which includes post production where such skills as editing, sound recording, special effects creation and compositing are learnt.
