Sneak preview: the 2020 CONNECTED animation

The CONNECTED Network is delighted to again this year be working with student animators from The University of The West of England and their tutors, to create a brand new 90-second animated film.

We are pleased to share some advance visuals from this film, which is being made by Julia Vaccina Makar and Kye Ottley. Julia and Kye are working on the project from their homes.

Coinciding with The International Year of Plant Health, this film will emphasise:

  • the role of human activity in spreading plant diseases
  • the importance of farmers and researchers being trained in techniques to help them quickly understand and diagnose problems with crops, and
  • the role of CONNECTED in providing this training.

We hope and expect to have a completed film sometime in late May or early June, so watch this space. Meanwhile, have a look at the ‘sneak preview’ images here…
