“Fish for Life” won Best Animation

The AnimationDingle Award for Best Animation is given this year to our animated short Fish for Life. Yesterday evening, the ceremony was live on youtube. One of my team members, Victoria Wolfersberger and I watched the screening together, separated at home, though.

Unfortunately, the festival was canceled due to public health & safety concerns in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. I planned this trip months ago. The plan was to visit this awesome festival with my sister. In addition, we also wanted to travel a little bit through this beautiful place in western Ireland. It would have been the first in Ireland time for us both. In addition we also planned to celebrate Irelands biggest celebration day – the St. Patrick’s Day.

Unfortunately, I had to cancel our planned travel a few days before our flight to Ireland. The whole situation came with a lot of anger and frustration, though. Nevertheless, the festival organizers held the ceremony anyway, and for that, we are very grateful! If you’re interested in the whole project, the huge development since the beginning, the feel free to visit our website.

Best Animation! What a huge achievement. We are so proud. The Animation Dingle festival people will send us a original trophy as soon it is possible.
