THE EAGLEMAN STAG WINS SXSW SPECIAL JURY PRIZE


We couldn’t be happier for filmmaker Mikey Please, whose Future Shorts represented film The Eagleman Stag was awarded a Special Jury prize at the South by Southwest Film Awards last weekend.

The animated short took home the 2011 SXSW WHOLPHIN AWARD. Congratulations!

A distinctive stop-frame animation narrated by cult British actor David Cann, The Eagleman Stag is a dark and beautiful look at one man’s attempts to define the world and his haunting perception of time within it.

The prize joins the film’s recent win for Best Short Animation at this year’s BAFTAs, and is responsible (in Mikey’s own words) for making him feel a bit "wobbly inside”.  We’re taking that as a very good thing…

The full list of winners from this year’s festival is available here. For enquiries regarding The Eagleman Stag and other films in the Future Shorts Distribution Catalogue, email us here.
