The Magpie animated film | Screening at BFI Future Film Fest

BFI-logoThe BFI Future Film Festival (20th-22nd February) is in its eighth year, and organisers said “it is bigger and better than ever!” On Friday 20th it will be having a new Animation+ day.  The Fest will be screening The Magpie, a film that was made by former Lincoln School of Film & Media students. You can now watch The Magpie, which was created when in their final year as animation students, by William Wivell and Gary Davies. Will’s got in touch to add: credit, too, to Jake Longworth, the 3D concept work and post-production guy and Estelle Sharpe, who assisted with the animation. The sound design was created by audio production graduates Lilly Cording and Alex O’Brien.  Alex said: “The Magpie was a fantastic project to be a part of. I learnt a lot about working with animation and how important music and sound really are in this genre. As a team we are incredibly proud to have our film shown at the BFI Future Film Festival next month and we are excited to see what may come of it.”
