Ainslie Henderson and Will Anderson’s Monkey Love Experiments has done it again! The animation has won the Channel 4 Innovation Award for Storytelling, a new prize at the Glasgow Short Film Festival.

The jury said the following:

“This intricate combination of stop motion, live action and 3D animation transported us into a singular, surreal environment. Seeing the world through the eyes of a confused – and somewhat deluded – primate, elicited deep emotional responses from the jury.”

The award was made at the closing event of the festival on Sunday 15 March.

Most of the Scottish Shorts 2014 slate competed this year at GSFF – Ian Waugh’s As He Lay Falling, Martin Smith’s Seagulls, Rory Alexander Stewart’s Wyld and Monkey Love Experiments. Last year, Cara Connolly and Martin Clark’s Exchange and Mart won the GSFF Audience Award.

Congratulations to  Ainslie, Will, Cameron Fraser of Ko Lik and the rest of the crew involved!
