‘The Epic Thread’ Wins Gold at the Ciclope International Awards

Ciclope is an international festival of craft in moving images and took place last week in Berlin. The event focuses on the execution of the ideas and awards in categories around the making of film.

‘The Epic Thread’ has won gold in the 2D Animation Category for Mill+, a division of The Mill.

Voiced by British comedy legend – and a Fableist – Jennifer Saunders, ‘The Epic Thread’ is the story of a young girl’s quest to find out where, how and by whom her clothes were made after she finds a loose thread on her t-shirt. She follows the thread on an epic journey and meets the designers, the ships that transported the the clothes, the factory owner and the farmers – and makes a trusty friend along the way.

Congratulations to everyone involved!
