Stick Man wins 'Best Animation' at Shanghai International Film Festival
The week where Stick Man found itself selected in various film festivals started off on the right foot. We won 'Best Animation' at the Shanghai International Film Festival. It's a very prestigious event, which prides itself in being the biggest in South East Asia. It was a huge honour to be up for not one, but two awards: Best Animation and Best Story. Amongst the other winners was Games of Thrones for 'Best TV series', so I count myself in very good company. Sadly enough I couldn't make it to Shanghai as the event coincided with the nearer to home Annecy International Animation Film Festival. So Stick Man himself went to pick up the award. The event was broadcast live on Chinese State television, so I hope he had his speech prepared. It's great to hear Stick Man is popular amongst different cultures. A stick seems to unlock a child's imagination all over the world.
