After months of hard work by young people who stammer, under the expert guidance of animation / iphone developers evil.twin.artworks, The Stammurai fought of stiff competition from hundreds of films from across Britain to win the coveted Best Animation award.
Matthew Kilford and Peter George Rowe from Dacoit Studios delivered all the audio sessions for ‘The Stammurai’ project helping the young people create, sound fx, vocal tracks and music Matthew Kilford said “I’m so immensely proud to have been a part of the Stammurai and helping these young filmmakers bring to life, something i could tell straight away meant a lot to them. Hearing stories about the new found confidence some of them now have in everyday life makes it all so much more worth while.
There are more than a few talented students in that bunch with a bright future and I’m sure if they did not realise it before they do now. They better remember me when they’re working at Pixar”
