Recently "But Milk Is Important" was screened at Cardiff Independent Film Festival and was lucky to win the award for Best Short! Our music composer Phil Brookes was there to represent the film and went up to receive the award! A big thanks to the festival jury! Huzza!
You can now read about our production at Dragonframes official website, where the project is now featured! :)
"Delightfully disturbing, this is a studly student piece indeed. The trailer for this short from joint directors Anna Mantzaris and Eirik Bjørnsen, hailing from Volda University College in Norway, proves to be as much a mystery as it is a masterpiece. What is this film about? Is it a warmer and fuzzier Donnie Darko? Is it a crazy cute Kafka story? Is it a psychological mind bender or an ominous nutritional service announcement? The only thing that is certain is that it is beautifully lit, shot and art directed and is a piece of engagingly suspenseful storytelling. We can't wait until this endearingly dark dust bunny comes fully out of the closet."
15 Important people from the animation industry - programmers and critics - have been asked which are the 10 best animated shorts (all categories, and from the whole world) from 2013.
And two of the people, Chris Robinson and Daniel Suljic, put our film on their list !! Hurray and thank you !

Eirik was interviewed about the film in the local paper in Sandnes, his home town.
Sandnes had a short film festival where the film was participating and also got an award called Future Glance.
This interview was made before the festival, read it HERE !
"But Milk Is Important" takes its 13th award this weekend. And where? In Eirik's hometown Sandnes!
The film took the "Future Glance" award and we are really happy for that. Big thanks to the jury! We also got a really cool statue, a golden ViewMaster, which you can see the award title when you look inside it.
Both directors attended and it was fun to attend a shortfilm festival, having a film in the programme while staying at Eirik's home.
Thanks to the festival director and voulenteers for a great festival!
