The first Creative Vision Award, established by chartered accountancy firm Kingston Smith, provides an opportunity for a charity to have an animated film created at no cost.
The short brand film will be created by students during the BFX Festival, using cutting edge VFX and animation techniques, and will be suitable for any use, including TV, social media, online or any other channel you choose. Charity application will need to explain how a film would help them to promote their cause and suggest some content ideas, such as key messages and a possible scenario.
