Young animator impresses panel of celebrity judges.

The success is continuing for a young animator from Raymond’s Hill who won another accolade for his film making skills after impressing a panel of celebrity judges.

Joe Blandamer was crowned the winner of the British Science Association’s National Science and Engineering Week’s World In Motion prize in the primary school section.

“I am quite proud of myself – quite a few people entered the competition,” says Joe.

As part of the national competition the Woodroffe School student produced a video titled Polar Ice Caps Melting.

Joe’s animation, which also featured the voice-over talents of his younger sisters, Isobel and Ruby, looked at how sea levels have risen due to the melting of the polar ice caps.

The competition was led by a celebrity panel of judges headed by Professor Robert Winston.

Joe won a VIP day at the Natural History Museum for him and his younger sisters.

He is already working on his next animation project.
