Animation Masterclass: Jayne Pilling
The Very Best of British Animation Awards
From its first edition in 1996, the British Animation Awards have played a very important role as the only award specialized in animation in the UK. Anyone can understand how British animation evolved if you overview this award’s 20 years of history. In this program, Jayne Pilling, the founder of this award, picks the “best” films from among recently awarded films from her point of view. Its range is very broad, from short films to commercials and music videos.
