‘A Trinity Story’ Wins a Charity Film Award

We’re over the moon that ‘A Trinity Story’, the animation that we created for Royal Trinity Hospice won a Charity Film Award!

The Charity Films Awards

The Charity Film Awards celebrate the best film and video content that charities produce for their fundraising and marketing. The Awards place a spotlight on the efforts of these charities and help increase donations for the good causes these charities support.

The films were shortlisted by the public and then the finalists and winners were chosen by a panel of judges. Winners were announced at a gala ceremony at the BAFTA in London on 15 March 2017. ‘A Trinity Story’ was chosen as the best film in the category of charities that generate a revenue between £5 – 50 million. We’re so honoured and pleased that our animation was included with films by charities that contribute so much to improving the lives of people, communities, the environment and animals across the world. You can view the other winning films on The Charity Awards website.

‘A Trinity Story’

Royal Trinity Hospice approached us in early 2016 to help them produce an animation that raised awareness of their support services that make the end of life process more manageable and compassionate.

The animation tells the story from the point of view of a man suffering from lung cancer and shows how Trinity helps him and his family make the most of their time together. The simplistic imagery and mixed media style incorporating cutouts and watercolour sketches was a creatively effective way to convey the personal and emotional content of the animation and helps address the misconceptions people may have about hospice care in general.

We’d like to thank our incredible team who worked on the animation: Isolde Godfrey as artist and project manager, Grace Dugdale as script writer and Badj Whipple as editor. They all worked closely with the Trinity team to develop the engaging script and visual content.
