Who Won? Cosgrove Hall Brings Home the Big Chip
Cosgrove Hall (Cosgrove Hall)
Manchester based animators Cosgrove Hall last night (Thursday) scooped the award for “Best Digital Animation” for Doctor Who “The Scream of the Shalka” commissioned by and produced for BBCi.  Attended by over 400 guests Manchester’s glittering ceremony for the digital sector took place for the 6h year running and proved yet again that the city is indeed one of the world centres for digital media.
“Scream of the Shalka”, the 9th incarnation of the legendary Doctor Who premiered on the internet last November and has proved to be a major hit.
The design of “Scream of the Shalka” has been lauded throughout the creative industry and even gained the cover of design bible “Design Week” in the UK - Producer Steve Maher … “Doctor Who is a huge phenomenon and the idea of bringing an animated version to life was a big responsibility – there were literally thousands of fans out there waiting to see if we got it right…! Thankfully the response since the websiodes went live proves that we did. Winning this award from the digital sector of our industry is a great accolade and proves that we at Cosgrove Hall continue to extend our skills and talents outside of the children’s tv mantle that we’re most well known for.”
Although a relatively new way of showing their digital animation, the success of The Oddkinsons for Manchester United and the previous BBCi web drama “Ghosts of Albion” has proved that it’s an excellent forum allowing people all over the planet to log in and watch when they like and as many times as they like.
The 85 minute series is availble to watch on the BBCi website www.bbc.co.uk/cult was produced to coincide with the Doctor’s 40th Anniversary.
