The below animated films were created for the inaugural Creative Vision Award for Charities, created and funded by accountancy firm Kingston Smith LLP. Along with blood cancer charity Anthony Nolan, Dyslexia Action has won animated short films worth an estimated £150,000 each. The films were created in partnership with Bournemouth University’s BFX Festival and used cutting-edge VFX and animation techniques to tell a story. The students were asked to use the films to highlight Dyslexia Action’s commitment to supporting children, young people and adults with literacy and numeracy difficulties, dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties.
From the original brief, a variety of scripts were written and storyboards produced. Along with industry experts, Dyslexia Action selected a short list of films and student teams working on those chosen films were given the opportunity to work with mentors to create these fantastic films.
