"Clementine" - awarded Best Drama at 0117 Hours Encounters Film Challenge

I joined a lovely team for this fun long weekend of film making. "Charlie and the Tobacco Factory" (one of many hilarious Bristol-related names they had come up with) invited me to add some small animationy bits over their story "Clementine", the story of a girl following the footsteps of Bristol guerrilla poet, Thomas Chatterton.

The challenge challenged challengers to make a film in only 117 hours based on an exhibition in the newly-opened M Shed museum. Amazing Bristol locations were made available to the film makers and everyone I'm sure had a right laugh, as well as a surge of creative pride in Bristol and its history.

The film may not have won but out of 38 films it was awarded the accolade of Best Drama, and it's always nice to be Best Something. The films will all be available to view as part of an exhibition at the M Shed so head on down to watch the full range of submissions.

Thanks so much to Charlie and his whole Tobacco Factory for letting me pitch in and well done for the mention!
