Animated Adventures: Behind the Scenes
Our animation roundup in the short film competition programme has a lot to offer this year, from a hand-painted essay on masculinity (by the talented Birmingham City University student Taian Lu) to a crazy satire of Spain (think Max Max meets A Town Called Panic). If you're curious about how these films were made, check out the making of videos below - they give an idea of the incredible amount of work and creativity that goes into every single frame.
