"Charlie & Yip" in Neum Film Festival

My short film "Charlie and Yip" is a finalist in the Neum Animated Film Festival which runs from June 27th to July 2nd.

Charlie and Yip is a short film about a kid who takes his pet to school for Show and Tell, which turns out to be a bad idea. It's a really a teaser for my indie feature film project "My Haunted House", which is still in development.

Funding feature films isn't easy in the current business climate, but it's important to remember that, despite all the troubles caused by the Corona virus, the animation industry continues to thrive.

Even as live action shoots have been closed down around the globe, animation keeps on going, as studios have moved to a purely online business model.

The animation for Charlie and Yip was made by Tumblehead Studios in Denmark.  Voice talent was provided by Lizzie Waterworth Santo.

Financial support came from the BFI and the West Danish Film Fund. Charlie and Yip has been selected for multiple film festivals, and won Best Animation at the British Animation Film Festival.
