Last month Aardman teamed up with The Big Lunch to offer budding animators the opportunity to create a short film for the national event, with Morph in the starring role.
Thirteen-year-old Tia Margan’s entry – a brilliant animation entitled ‘Mad Morph Tea Party’ – was selected as the winner!
The judging panel included Aardman’s Creative Director Merlin Cressingham and after he and his fellow judges selected a shortlist of four entries, the voting was then opened up to the public on Facebook. Tia’s winning entry not only becomes the official Big Lunch film, but she also wins an exclusive workshop for ten friends with Aardman’s model makers. Take a look at Morph getting ready for his Big Lunch in Tia’s animation above.
The Big Lunch takes place on Sunday 8th June and aims to get as many people in the UK to get together for lunch, making friends and sharing in some community spirit along the way. In 2013 3.6 million people took to their streets, gardens, playgrounds and parks, and this year looks set to be even bigger than ever.
