Trafford College celebrates success in national animation competition

Students studying at Trafford College are celebrating after coming away with a haul of awards from this year’s UK Schools Computer Animation Competition.

Run by the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester, the Animation 18 competition saw hundreds of entries from budding animators from across the UK.

Students could create a 2D or 3D (computer 3D graphics or stop motion) animation on any subject and Trafford College came away with four awards in the Key Stage 5 section including group winners for ‘Plastic in our Oceans’ by Jodie Miller, Mitchel Allen-Moors and Reece Elms. Their short animation focussed on the hot topic of pollution in the ocean and the global environmental impact of the amount of plastic being found.

Other successes were Lewis Jordan who was KS5 Individual Runner-Up for Best Original Idea for his animation ‘Love Discovered Through A Lens’, Sonny Slater-Ling’s animation entitled ‘Futility’ was KS5 Individual Highly Commended, and Louis Crick’s ‘Cyber Bully’s’ was Individual Commended in the KS5 section.

Media and creative technologies teacher David Maxwell said: “We are delighted with the college’s success in Animation 18 and the achievements of our students.

“The standard of our entries was very high and certainly highlights the skills our students have developed while studying on our games development and animation/visual effects courses to give them the confidence and the ability to produce winning animations.”

Reece Elms said: “It was a surprise to win, but our animation has a strong message about the impact of the plastic in the ocean which I think helped make it stand out.”
