We have had an amazing week.
Penny “Christmas Doesn’t Need Much” won a Silver Animation Craft Award at the Dutch Creativity Awards in The Netherlands (11 April), and last night (17 April) Chicken Licken “The Legend Of Big John” won the VFX Craft award at Ciclope Africa and Chicken Licken “Sbu 2.0” won the Ciclope Grand Prix! The Chicken Licken ads are now both heading to the finals in Berlin in November. Fingers crossed.
The Dutch Creativity Awards Jury feedback regarding Penny was amazing: “The character design, animation and the visual details in the storytelling are heart warming, a beautiful short story that really touches you.”. Chocolate Tribe rigged all the lead characters and fully animated over 50 seconds of the almost 2 minute long ad.
It was an wonderful to yet again have teamed up with the Glassworks guys and work on this wonderful Christmas ad.
Less than a week later, at the Ciclope Africa awards, we walked away with the Pink statue for the Visual Effects for Chicken Licken “Legend of Big John”. To top it of the Ciclope Grand Prix went to Chicken Licken “Sbu 2.0”. We had the honour of doing the visual effects on the Grand Prix winner of the night Chicken Licken “Sbu 2.0”.
