A quote from Ed Hooks (http://www.edhooks.com/):
“I like it. The action stayed a half step ahead of me the whole time, and I always enjoy that feeling. There is a lot of creative confidence on display. It appears that you guys achieved what you set out to do, and good on you! Fun.”

BFX is a 6 week student competition which sees teams of 4-6 tasked with creating a stunning 2-D or 3-D visual effects or animation sequence, based on a passage from classic literature. You will be mentored by experts from the leading British studios including Framestore, Double-Negative, The Mill, MPC, Realise Studios, Hibbert Ralph Animation and Cinesite. The best individuals on the winning teams will be given the opportunity to take up internships at some of the studios taking part in BFX. The Competition is the sister event to the BFX Animation and VFX Festival in Bournemouth, UK.
