On Thursday night we had the "Best of Festival" screening and awards ceremony for a film festival that I did a stop animation for.  My film "Percipient" was selected for the Best of Fest screening and nominated for a pile of awards.  I ended up receiving Best Directing, Best Editing, Best Lighting, Best Audio/Sound Design, Best Original Score, Best in Genre (Specialty) and came in 3rd place overall.

Just goes to show you that when done right, animation can hold its own against anything a live action film can put out there.

Unfortunately I can't share the film with you all yet as I want to send it to more festivals and they require that submissions not be available to the public online.

Sounds great!   So what was the name of the festival?  And can you show a couple of stills here?

Here are some stills from the short.  The festival was Z-Fest Film Festival VI, a local submission festival that is put on by a rental house and sponsored by AJA, Sony, AVID, etc.
