Float Folks Wins Future of Film Award

Floats Folks Best Trailer at Future of Film Awards
Congratulations to the makers of "The Float Folks", the short teaser/trailer made at BNU by our animation students, which has won "Best Trailer" at the Future of Film Awards. 

The Float Folks is an animated TV Series created by Ian Foyle and directed by Monika Dzikowicz, currently in development.

The Float Folks
The Float Folks
 is a fun, watery world, a miniature community of oddball fishing floats. 

The Float Folks invites the viewer into a world of fishing floats; a small town by the reed beds where everyone gets along (mostly) and the best way to travel is by dragonfly or dogfish.

Sound design was by Kris Allen.  Animation was completed by  Lydon Fleisig, Dave Berry, Paula Gillin, Allan De Leal and Kalim Momen.

Festival Success
