Bristol International Short Film Festival 2006 – Daniel Gray and Tom Brown

The 12th Bristol International Short Film Festival was held in Bristol, UK last week. Bristol is always an interesting festival for animation fans. This year was no exception. Many of this year’s films will be available for viewing on BBC-3 after Dec. 8th. One of the films winning an award this year is an intriguing student animation from Daniel Gray and Tom Brown called “T.O.M.”. The short animated film won the Cartoon D’Or Nomination. It’s not entirely clear what that award is but winning this award puts Daniel and Tom’s film made at the University of Wales in the running for further more prestigious European awards. From their web page:

News from Bristol’s Encounter Festival is that we didn’t win our category. We did how ever win the British nomination to the Cartoon D’or, which was a complete suprise because we didn’t even know we were in that section. So we come away with something pretty cool.

“T.O.M.” looks more than pretty cool to us here at Dimples’ central command center. They’ve created a myspace page for their film and you can view the trailer there.

    […] Read our earlier post on Daniel and Tom’s animation win (T.O.M.) at Swansea for a comment from Daniel saying that they’re going to be at Sundance along with Joanna Quinn. […]

    I just stumbled across this article again and thought I would tell you that we are 1 of 5 finalists picked from over 30 nominated films for the Cartoon D’or now which is awarded later this month.
