The 2013 YCN Professional Award Winners have been announced. I’m delighted to have been selected as a winner in the animation category.
The first UK screening of Kiss The Water will be at Edinburgh International Film Festival on 23rd June.
The premiere went really well on Monday – Jerry Seinfeld was there and described the film as ‘a combination of dreaming and eating dessert’. It was a great night – amazing to see the film on the big screen and feel the audience’s reactions.
If you were unable to get a ticket for the screenings and discussion at the Freud Museum, there is now a free download of the full interview available on iTunes: bit.ly/wuHDiq
The event was really interesting – Andrea Sabbadini drew out a number of links between three of my films, which made me consider the pieces in new ways. The discussion with the audience was particularly illuminating and some interesting points were raised about the relationship between the films and the audience. The comments gave me lots of food for thought!
