Dr Simpo's ANIMATED ANTIDOTE Competition

At the start of lockdown we invited film makers of all ages to make a short animation in response to  Covid. The films are in, watch them and vote for you favourite in three categories...





Time to be creative. Our resident animation expert Dr Simpo wants to see your animated antidote to Covid 19. Holmfirth Film Festival (home of Bamforth Films and Last of the Summer Wine) and Bates Mill Creative Spaces are bringing a little fun and excitement into the world.
60 seconds of funny, silly, wacky, wild, down-right-daft screen time to blow away the anxiety of our times, with above all - LAUGHTER!

TOP PRIZES in three categories:
CHILDREN (-17) = £75
STUDENTS OF ALL AGES (registration details please) = £150
Your cartoon must be more than 60 seconds, with sound where possible.
Your file should be 25 fps, 16:9 aspect ratio and exported as h.264 mp4
(Other formats are accepted, if they work, the risk is yours!)  
The top 10 shortlisted animators will be contacted via email and these animations will be screened at the Holmfirth Film Festival in November 2020 - details to follow on submission.
Please submit your animation via WeTransfer to doctorsimpo@hotmail.co.uk
The short listed animations will be decided by a public vote.
Watch out for Doctor Simpo's weekly animation tips to help you to create the best animations that you can, available on:
