Film Club's Marcus Armitage has this morning been nominated for a BAFTA in the Best British Short Animation category for his well traveled short film 'My Dad'.
Having been awarded Best British Film at the London International Animation Festival last year, the film - which Marcus presented as his RCA graduate film only last summer - has continued to impress on the International festival circuit.
The film was made using oil pastels on paper and depicts a Dad's influence on an impressionable young boy's life. The relationship gives rise to a toxic mix, resulting in a world that strips away opportunity and experience for the young boy. Marcus defines the film as existing 'somewhere between a documentary and fiction. A film created from personal experiences, of my own eye opening journey of moving to London, and the prejudices I see around me in people I know or things that I read see or hear'.
We'd love to show you all the film in its entirety, but until the film eventually comes off the festival circuit, a short excerpt is all we're allowed. To see this, please follow this link.

We're absolutely over the moon for you, Marcus, and we wish you all the very best of luck for the awards show on February 8th.
