Carey, an author of animated shorts, novels and short stories, while unpublished, can now add soon-to-be produced to his C.V. Carey, also a student with AnimationMentor.com, holds a Diploma in Classical Animation from the prestigious Ballyfermot Senior College Dublin.
When informed that his script had placed second in a Canadian competition, Carey said, “That’s grand”.
Festival founder, David Cormican was particularly taken by the universal sense of compassion found in Carey’s script and is excited to begin shooting the film later this year. When asked about an Irishman placing in the top three of a Canadian competition, Cormican, also a dual citizen of Ireland noted it is a blind judging and the identity of a script’s author is anonymous to competition readers. “I think it’s rather fitting that someone from another country has placed in the top three. After all, we all came from somewhere to begin with in this great country of ours”, said Cormican.
