One of the competition judges, film producer Tracey Scoffield was in attendance to share her expert reading of the filmmakers work and provide insight to the genres and filmic themes that had been explored. Tracey noted in particular the innovative approach to animation that many students had employed this year and the refinement of filmmaking craft on display in the films by the older students who were regular entrants to the competition.
