Stop-motion winners announced

FilmG has announced the winners of its’ stop motion flash competition.

Primary and secondary school pupils were invited to create animations on their mobile devices over the summer holidays and the winning films were selected by CBBC ALBA presenter and musician Anna MacDonald, and graphic designer Alice Watson.

Scooping the primary 1-3 award, was Aonghas Forrest from Bun-sgoil Shlèite with Cunnartan Mara (Dangers at Sea). His film is set in his salt water fish tank, and sees a magical fish of Aonghas’ own creation release his friends from a trawler’s net. 

  

In the second category, for those in upper primary, Finlay Morrison from Glasgow, won with his comedy Na Leòdhasaich, Na Hearaich, Na Lochlannaich, agus na Leprechauns where the people of Lewis, Harris, Vikings, and Leprechauns battling it out to be crowned the champions of Gaelic!

The High School award went to Seumas Morgan, from Dingwall. Seumas used the Flipaclip app to make his detailed animation, which features some interesting and creative characters as well as great voiceover!

There is a wonderful variety in this year’s stop-motions, from films taking a comedic look at old Gaelic tongue twisters to films using sweets and fruit as props and they can be seen here, on YouTube. Well done to all who took part!
