Previous SharpFutures project work

Opposite is an animation for SharpFutures / The Sharp Project and Manchester City Council, where three schools pitched a story for Manchester 20:20 Vision ‘A day in the life of Sharpie’. The winning school, MCMA Boys, then had their story produced as a film by us. Animation was produced by Sam Jones, David Ridges & Jon Turner from Kilogramme.
