Bray People - - NEWS -

A SHORT en­vi­ron­men­tal film cre­ated by Pure Project has won Best An­i­ma­tion at the First Cut Youth Film Fes­ti­val.

MC Trash tells the story of Rita Red Eye, the Witch, who is shaken up af­ter her en­counter with the rap­per MC Trash and his waste­ful ways. An­noyed by the amount of lit­ter­ing dur­ing one of MC Trash’s con­certs, Rita de­cides to show the rap­per what it feels like to be dumped on.

The short film was cre­ated dur­ing a one-week en­vi­ron­men­tal/an­i­ma­tion train­ing pro­gramme help­ing par­tic­i­pants to de­velop and cre­ate an­i­ma­tions based on en­vi­ron­men­tal themes re­lated to the Pure Project.

Wel­com­ing the suc­cess of MC Trash, Ian Davis of Pure said, ‘ the Pure En­vi­ron­men­tal An­i­ma­tion Train­ing Pro­gramme has been a great suc­cess and all credit is due to the stu­dents and the fa­cil­i­ta­tors who were in­volved.’

The short film cen­tres around the themes of il­le­gal dump­ing, lit­ter, fly- tip­ping, re­cy­cling, pol­lu­tion and cli­mate change. All the char­ac­ters and land­scapes fea­tured were cre­ated from re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­al­slots of other re­cy­cled ma­te­rial.
