Meet "Flame"

Many congratulations to Bucks MA animation student Amedeo Beretta whose short film "Flame" is now being entered into international film festival competitions, with multiple acceptances and considerable success. Amedeo is an animation tutor at Escape Studios in London, and Flame is a project completed by his students, overseen by him, and an excellent example of the superb work being done by our online students at Bucks.

On a dark night in the desert, Flame is born, but she soon realizes that the storm that brought her life is now a threat to her survival.  Flame was directed by Cherelle Owusu and produced by Carolina Xavier, under the supervision of supervising tutor Amedeo Beretta.
