Junkyard wins Grand Prix at Shanghai TV Festival

June 17, 2013

Dutch animated film Junkyard by director Hisko Hulsing was awarded the Animation Jury's Grand Prix - Magnolia Award at the awards ceremony of the Shanghai TV Festival last friday.

The Shanghai TV Festival is one of Asia's first and biggest TV Festivals. The festival, which took place from 10 -14 June 2013 presented Junkyard in the programme section Outstanding Shorts.

Junkyard is produced and distributed by il Luster Productionas. The film has won 15 international awards so far and was last year's Dutch entry for the Oscars in the Best Animated Shorts category.

In Junkyard a man is being robbed and stabbed by a junkie and in the last second before he dies, a youth friendship flasehes before his eyes. He and his bosomfriend grew apart when the latter was being drawn more and more into a misty world of drugs and criminality under influence of a young lowlife dealer who lives with his father on the junkyard in their neighbourhood. The film is created by using 2d and 3d animation techniques layered over large oilpainted backgrounds.
