"Thank you to the very special people who voted for this. You know who you are. Also congrats to Gravy Media director Alex Williams and his ex-students the very special Tumblehead from Denmark for doing such a fantastic job and earning your votes for best short at the 2014 British Animation Film Festival."
Charlie and Yip was made by Tumblehead Studios in Denmark, founded by the very talented Magnus Moller and Peter Smith, both graduates of the Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark, which has for some years been developing a reputation as one of the best animation schools in Europe.
Tumblehead did the final design work, the modeling, texturing, rigging, animation, lighting and rendering (which was done in Arnold). To see more of Tumblead's excellent work, check out their website at www.tumblehead.com.
Lizzie Waterworth Santo, an actor with an admirably wide range of vocal skills. The kids in class were voiced by students at the American School in Surrey.

Sound design was provided by the very talented Vanesa and Dominique at Tate Post in Soho.
Charlie and Yip is really a teaser for my feature film project, My Haunted House, which is being developed at Gravy Media. We're currently in re-writes with writer Tim Lebbon (it's going really well), aiming to take the project to Cartoon Movie early next year, where we will be looking for finance, co-production partners and distribution.
