Thank you to everyone that did log on and create a Vimeo account to view and vote for BumbleBee Forgets Mother's Day. The voting closed on Sunday, February 23rd. That morning BumbleBee was still tied for 4th place. (Still not bad considering there were 116 films submitted) If BumbleBee did advance to the top ten films, then Berlin's Lift-Off Members Network and Lift-Off's Official Judges will go further in-depth and score the top ten films based on multiple aspects. They pick one film to be screened in an upcoming Lift-Off Film Festival.
I animated this short using Anime Studio Pro12. It was narrated by the amazing Andrea Karam. She brought this little film to life with her warm expressive voice.
BumbleBee has been officially selected to the monthly "Feel the Reel International Film Festival" - January Edition in Glasgow, Scotland!
"BumbleBee Forgets Mother's Day" has also won an Award of Commendation at the Canada Shorts Film Festival as well as an Award of Merit at the Best Shorts Competion in San Diego.
I like a challenge, so I am diving into the Harmony software learning curve and applying it to my next animated short.
