Bringing together the best of the best in the creative industries, Cannes Lions’ five day festival returned this year judging work from across 2020 and 2021. We are incredibly excited to announce that ‘Drawn Closer’, was awarded with three accolades across the Digital Craft and Entertainment categories. The heartwarming project picked up a Gold for Motion Graphics Design & Animation, a Silver for Real-time Contextual Content and a Bronze for Innovation in Branded Content. 

Covid-19 took away the chance for many school kids to be together and collaborate on the things they love. For the students of ‘Thurman White Academy of the Performing Arts’ that meant their school theatre production. Written and directed by Oscar-winning, Nexus Studios director Patrick Osborne, for Cox Communications, ‘Drawn Closer’ seamlessly blends animation craft, storytelling and technology to bring a school play to life in a totally original way.

Congratulations to Patrick and everyone behind this special project and to all the other winners!
