Foxy and Marina

Funded by Creative Scotland and UK Film Council, Zak Copping’s long short ‘Foxy and Marina’ shoots this weekend in Glasgow (Saturday 2nd April, 6 days).

Fixing Luka

BAFTA Winner


A big thank you to the exceptionally talented people behind ‘Fixing Luka’, DigiCult’s most recent stop-frame animation (Scottish Digital Shorts 2010). Two nominations for BAFTA in Scotland’s New Talent Awards (March 2011) secured one great win for the team – Pete MacDonald for Best Original Score – and many great tributes from the floor for Jessica Ashman (writer-director-animator) and Anna Odell (producer) after the film was nominated for Best Animation. DigiCult also wants to congratulate all the nominees and prize-winners recognised by BAFTA in Scotland this month. Well done one and all.
