A timely tale told through charming animation, 25 August 2006
Author: Ben Lock from United Kingdom

This is a lovely animation - well deserved of being Oscar Nominated! I was delighted to have worked with Sharon at the Film School and I can't imagine a more delightful person to have won (if she had).

I believe this film was nominated because it demonstrates simplicity of story-telling with a charming and identifiable lead character. The hand-drawn animation captures emotion through the smallest and subtlest of details - look out for the odd blink and scratch; it's very endearing especially coupled with beautiful music and gentle sound effects.

When you add into the pot a timely note about human interference with nature it all comes together and can't but put a smile on your face.

Well done Sharon!
