BFX Competition: Update

The BFX Competition 2015 comes to an end this Friday, here’s a look on how the teams have found the experience


A total of eight teams were challenged to create a 30 second animation to act as a campaign for Dyslexia Action or Anthony Nolan. The students are nearing the end of a seven-week residential stay at Bournemouth University where they spent every day working on their projects. Judges are expecting to see examples of 3D photoreal animation, 2D or 3D character animation, stop frame or any combination of the above, with or without live action elements/backplate acquisition.

The teams were mentored by industry experts such as, Double Negative, Framestore, Outpost VFX, MPC, D’Arblay Films/Hibbert Ralph Animation, Anthony Nolan, Dyslexia Action and academics from the NCCA and AUB.

Here’s what some of the teams think of the experience so far as well as comments from mentors, Paul Campion and Maxim Fleury.
